35mm BW Film - Svema Mz3 (1 Roll)
1 Roll / 35mm / BW / 24 exposures / iso 3
Svema Mz3 is a black & white, blue sensitive film rated at ISO 3. Photographer Larry Buechler described the film as "slow, wonderful, fine grain and super sharp." He went on to say that Mz3 produces "creamy, dreamy highlights that seem to float on the image like a mist."
How to shoot ISO 3? A manual 35mm slr camera is recommended. Use a smart phone light meter app, use our Black Cat Exposure Guide or use a hand-held light meter.
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.
