Kodak 16mm Hi-Con Black and White Reversal Film

Category: ,




16mm BW Experimental Film

An ultra fine grain black and white movie film with dense blacks and extreme highlights for a unique experimental look.  This film is best suited for bright daylight with bounce and fill lighting recommended to even out exposures.  As this film is rated ASA 6 – 12, it will have a very narrow exposure latitude presenting a significant shooting challenge with equal potential rewards.  This may be old school projected or digitally scanned for normal viewing!

Select from 400′ loads or 100′ daylight loads depending on your shooting needs.  400′ loads contain 11 minutes of film while 100′ loads contain 2.75 minutes of film if shot at 24fps.  400′ loads must be loaded in total darkness while 100′ loads may be loaded in subdued light.  See the “Specification” tab above for more technical details on this product.

If purchasing film bundled with developing, please be sure to return all Spectra barcodes on film containers to redeem services.  Film without barcodes can not be redeemed!
