This blue-sensitive black-and-white film needs to be shot in daylight or using a flash/strobe. Avoid using a yellow filter or shooting in tungsten (indoor) light.
Keep your film Light Tight! This film stock is subject to "light piping" when exposed to room light. Please load in dim light and store in a dark camera bag before and after shooting. If storing your film in fridge, freezer or home shelf, store in a light tight bag as well. What is light piping? Read our blog by Leslie Lazenby. As with all of our films being shot using vintage cameras, your results are not guaranteed.
How do I meter for iso 6? If you camera can't be set to iso 6, you can set your meter iso to 25 open 2 f-stops.
