The FPP now offers Kodak Super Low Speed Color in convenient 35mm rolls. Re-Canned by Michael Raso from 2000 ft cinema reels in the FPP Studio Darkroom.

Kodak Super Low Speed (35mm) is a low-speed duplicating film, highly sought to shoot in still cameras and is intended for making digital dupes in motion picture film labs. When using in your 35mm camera this film will produce a film negative.

Standard C-41 Processing! There is no rem jet associated with this film (like other color Vision stocks) and can be self-developed in chemistry like the FPP Unicolor C-41 Kit and others. This film can also be commercially processed by The Darkroom and other commercial labs that process C-41 films.

Daylight or Tungsten (Studio Light) Balanced? This film is neither Daylight or Tungsten! The film is designed to be exposed under laser, CRT, and LED light sources. Since this film was not manufactured for in-camera use, colors may be a bit off-beat. See photo examples on this page.

Is there an anti-halation layer? This film does not appear to have a standard anti-halation layer. It does have an Anti-Static Layer! According to Kodak, "the anti-static layer remains with the film after processing, eliminating the electrostatic attraction of dirt particles to the processed film, even at relatively low humidity. A very thin polymeric backing layer coated on top of the anti-static layer provides improved resistance to back-side scratches, cinch marks, and abrasion of both raw stock and processed film. The backing layer also contains process-surviving lubricant and matte to optimize winding and transport characteristics".

How do I meter for asa 1.6? You must dial the asa manually into your camera or meter. If you camera can't be set to asa 1.6, you can dial in asa 25 then open up 4 more stops

Kevin says: "I shot with a Nikon F4 and either a 85mm f/1.4 or 50mm f/1.4 lens. I rated the film at ISO 1.5. I'll probably rate it at ISO 1.2 on the next roll. Processing was done in standard C-41 as there is no remjet on the film. I also experimented with cross processing the film in E6, +2 stop push. This is my normal process for C41 to E6 xpro and generally provides satisfactory results. The result was a completely blank film strip - not even any edge numbers or codes. The E6 process completely washed away the emulsion."
