This is an high contrast, fine grained Orthochromatic motion picture film for shooting in daylight or with daylight balanced lights.

This unique, high contrast, extremely fine-grained blue sensitive film was manufactured for optical sound recording but will produce stunningly fine-grain images when using for pictoral images in your still camera. Expect high contrast and a slight glow and because it is an ortho film and not all tones will record the same as a normal panchromatic film.

Recommended developers are FPP D96, HC-110 or Fine Grain TD-3 Developer.  (Scroll down for development times)

Sonic 25 is a great choice when shooting in daylight or with daylight balanced lights, delivering a unique tonal range that will render red light as darker giving a different look from traditional Panchromatic films.

Due to its high contrast, a bounce card or fill-flash is recommended on portrait subjects.
