This film is tungsten balanced and rated ASA 500 which is the best film available for low light shooting. The trade off is contending with more noticeable film grain that a higher ASA such as this will produce. 500T is intended for average or low light indoor lighting or night exteriors. Supplemental 3200K color temperature lighting is recommended for best results (this is not “night vision” film). May also be shot under shaded day exteriors with an 85 correction filter. This is a negative which is NOT suitable for film projection. Digital scanning is required (available from Spectra) to view pictures normally. 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.
