35mm BW Film - Svema Foto 100 (1 Roll)
1 Roll / 35mm / Hand-Rolled / BW / 24 exp / 100 iso / DX Coded / Process BW
Svema Foto 100 - a unique emulsion exclusive to the FPP! Direct and fresh from Eastern Europe to The Film Photography Project Store. Hand-rolled by Michael Raso of the Film Photography Podcast.
Foto 100 is a panchromatic negative high resolution film, coated onto a transparent polyester base providing excellent dimensional stability. Thickness of the polyester base: 0.10mm / 0.004”. Foto 100 has a high-efficiency protection layer on top of its emulsion to prevent scratching.
The spectral sensitivity of Foto-100 is expanded into the near infrared range of the energy spectrum. Its spectral sensitivity to up to 750 nm. Due to its very fine grain, its explicit detail rendering and its ability to be processed at low contrast, this film is producing low grain and very low noise when scanned. The film should be handled in near to complete darkness.
Notes from Svema film shooter Leslie Lazenby:
"Svema Foto 100 has a thin polyester base, is panchromatic, is true 100 speed and dries super flat. I home-processed in Xtol stock - 7 minutes @ 68 degrees, 5 seconds agitation twice every minute. (Michael Raso's home process has been Kodak D-76 - stock - 6 minutes @ 68 degrees)"

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.
