What is FPP RetroChrome film?
RetroChrome is government surplus Eastman Ektachrome 2239 color positive film. Made for industrial and governmental applications, Kodak adds “it is color reversal camera film that is intended for photography under daylight illumination. Among its many applications are news photography, sporting events and industrial photography.” The film is cold-stored 2004 expired. The film performs excellent at it’s intended box speed of 160 iso which leads us to believe that this film has been stored in the “deep freeze” for the past decade.

How do I shoot FPP RetroChrome Film? Just load the film into your 35mm camera and shoot. If your camera is auto, it will detect the DX code and your all ready to shoot. If you have a manual 35mm camera set your iso to 160 (or 100 if you do not have a 160 option)
RetroChrome 160 will give you "cool" blue hues when processed E6. The film will give a much warmer hue if cross-processed in C-41 chemistry.
