Fine Grain Six is a gorgeous ultra low ISO bw film that shoots both portraits and landscapes beautifully. The film is not typically used for pictorial images and is intended for making archival black-and-white separation positives from color negative originals. Other product applications for this film include special effects, density cover mattes, panchromatic masters from black-and-white negatives, and restoration work. Keen film photographers have been loading Fine Grain Six into their cameras and achieving wonderful results!
The recommended developer is FPP D96. This film can also be developed Standard BW like Kodak D76, HC-110, Ektol and others. This film can also be commercially processed by The Darkroom and other commercial labs that process black and white film.
How do I meter for asa 6? In order to shoot a film with an ISO of 6, you will need a manual SLR film camera (or a newer auto SLR that can be switched to manual mode). Note that Canon EOS 35mm cameras allow you to dial in ISO 6. You can also use a light meter app on your phone, a hand-held light meter (like the Gossen Luna Pro F) or the Black Cat Exposure Guide.
You cannot shoot Low ISO film in a compact 35mm camera (like a Yashica T4 or Olympus Stylus) because the lowest ISO these cameras can shoot is ISO 25.
