This special high speed film was originally designed for traffic surveillance cameras, making this film ideal in all weather conditions. The film sensitivity can vary with processing. JCH StreetPan 400 can be exposed as a 200 to 500 ASA/ISO film.
Due to its sensitivity to red light, JCH StreetPan 400 is the optimum film for dawn, dusk and winter photography. It’s speed and sensitometric characteristics make the film extremely suitable for low light and low sun angle photography (long shadow areas) and for wide latitude photographic exposure.
The spectral sensitivity is extended in the near infrared range of the energy spectrum, color sensitivity: panchromatic up to 750 nm. As a result, the film offers excellent penetration through haze, fog and other atmospheric conditions liable to affect the image quality. Due to the reduced scattering by the atmosphere, images are sharp and well edged. The near IR sensitivity and the strong response to red light allow for nocturne red flash photography as well as daylight photography. The graininess of the emulsion is low thanks to the 2-layer emulsion architecture. The low granularity makes the film very scanner-friendly and the scans deliver noise-free images in the image highlights.
The film should be handled in complete darkness.
Note: Each roll of FPP 620 is hand-rolled by FPP's Michael Raso on a newly produced FPP mold-injected 620 spool. Original vintage Kodak spools were metal. Our FPP 620 Spool is mold injected and is just a fraction thicker due to the fabrication requirements. Our spool will be snug in 1% of 620 cameras. It will loosen with repeated use (if you re-use your spool or can be easily sanded down with a piece of sandpaper.
