Kodak Aerochrome III Infrared Film. Process: AR-5, E-6 or C-41. PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY ALL THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ON THIS SPECIAL FILM WHICH IS PRESENTED IN THE DESCRIPTION OF THE LOT.
BY FOLLOWING THIS INFORMATION CAREFULLY YOU WILL GET THE VERY BEST RESULTS POSSIBLE FROM THIS FILM. THE PREFERRED METHOD FOR PROCESSING THIS SPECIAL FILM IS AR-5, E-6 (IN EXTREME CASES, AS A CROSS-PROCESS - C-41) BY THE DARKROOM.
(Many labs will claim they can handle this film, but in fact may not). Use a camera that does not auto advance film (Auto load cameras use small LED lights to detect and count frames and will cause light leaks).
Use a basic camera like the Canon (AE, A1), Minolta(XE-, XD-, X-700), Pentax (Spotmatic, MX, ME, MG, K1000, KX, KM), Nikon (FM, FE, FG) Olympus (OM, Trip 35), Fujica ST-, Mamiya- & many others. Load and unload in near darkness. DO NOT OPEN, LOAD OR UNLOAD CAMERA.
EXCEPT IN VERY SUBDUED LIGHT. (If your camera has a window on the back, tape up with black tape). ONLY The Darkroom is recommend for processing this special film. Shoot ONLY in Broad Sunlight. Infrared film needs IR light.
Shooting in shade (or back lit) will produce poor results. Please note that color infrared results will vary wildly. There are many, many ways for your results to go wrong. Film is not returnable and your results are not guaranteed. Please read the rest of the information on the page for the best results possible.Avoid unnecessary abundance of green foliage in the frame, for example, try not to photograph in the clearings in the forest. The light from the foliage reflects on all surrounding objects and the whole frame will be painted in shades of red! This film is very specialised. With the right combination of several important factors, such as bright sun, blue sky, cumulus clouds, green foliage and a pond or river in the frame, the result can exceed all your expectations! What is Kodak Aerochrome III Infrared Film Film?
KODAK AEROCHROME III Infrared Film 1443. Is an infrared-sensitive, false-color reversal film intended for various aerial photographic applications where infrared characteristics may yield distinctive results. To take pictures of the ground from an airplane, especially used in agriculture, forestry and even camouflage detection. Kodak only sells this film by bulk rolls (several hundred feet) in sizes for aerial cameras. These formats cant be shot in regular cameras.
This film from a large roll was cut and perforated on professional equipment for using with cameras for film type 135 35mm. After the development of this film on the AR-5 or E-6 process, you will get color slides.
The film is expired, batch-tested and cold stored. Aerial Film Speed (ISO/ASA Equivalent): 40. Aerial Film Speed and Effective Aerial Film. Speed should not be confused with ISO speed or. Nevertheless, on the forum on the Internet, where this topic was discussed, the prevailing opinion is that in practice, if you exhibit the aerial photographic film at the ISO values indicated on the package, you get an excellent result: "The can said ## so I rate the film at ## and have always achieved excellent exposures ".Based on this, all photos presented in the description of the lot were made at ISO = 40. Several dozen test films with different color filters were shot using yellow, orange and red filters with satisfactory results obtained from ISO 25 to 80. All photos illustrating this lot. Were taken in the summer and fall of 2019 (ISO 25 to 40 ASA). How was this film originally used? This film is intended for various aerial photographic applications, such as vegetation and forestry surveys, hydrology, and earth resources monitoring. Where infrared film properties may yield practical results. How do I shoot it? Kodak recommends that you shoot this film using a KODAK WRATTEN Filter No. In practice, you can use yellow, orange and red light filters. The final result is much more dependent on the lighting and those objects that are in the frame, rather than whether for example, the yellow or orange filter is used. What camera can I use? With some patience and ingenuity, most film cameras can be used. However, some 35mm film cameras from the 1990s have infrared sprocket-hole sensors that can fog infrared film (their manuals may warn against the use of infrared film for this reason). Other film cameras are not completely opaque to infrared light.
We store this infrared film in a refrigerator. To assess the effect of the temperature factor, two dozen cassettes of this infrared photographic film were stored for more than two years at a temperature of 23 to 28 degrees Celsius, and showed good results at the tests.
If you do not plan to use this film in the coming months, place it in a zip lock bag in the refrigerator. Before using, remove the film from the refrigerator and do not open the zip-lock bag. Keep at room temperature for several hours before loading into your camera to avoid condensation of moisture! How do I process it?
Kodak recommends for this aerial photo film the AR-5 process or the C-41 cross-process. Since it is a color slide film, you can process the film as E-6. You can also cross-process the film and have it processed as C-41 - which will produce a color negative.You need to have it processed AR-5 because that calls for all infrared sensors to be non-existent (or turned off). Many E-6 processors have infrared detectors in the machine, or IR sources in the dark-room. I've seen darkrooms that have IR sources that nobody was aware of until verified with IR scopes. Some power supplies on common electrical equipment emit a surprising amount of IR energy, enough to fog the film.
All photos in this lot are the result of development using the E-6 process. The main condition - when processing in a darkroom is DO NOT USE any source of infrared lighting!
It is VERY IMPORTANT to make sure you load and unload your film. Do not take out a cassette with photographic film from a light-tight black plastic container in bright sunlight! The charge end of the photographic film protruding from the cassette can be like an optical fiber. A few moments exposure to light can be enough to spoil more than half the film!Please make sure that you are using an older model 35mm camera that does not use diode light to count frames (like some of the newer AF cameras). These frame count lights will fog your film. This film is Hand-Rolled in cassettes 36exp. It is important that you DO NOT force beyond 36 exposures. This could result in the film being ripped off the inner spool. Please, after your 36th exposure, rewind the film into the canister. If your camera has an "auto-rewind", then trigger the rewind after you shoot the 36th frame.
Otherwise, the camera mechanism may rip the film. That most photo laboratories do not process Color Infrared Film on the E-6 process manually.The automatic development of this film is possible on frame machines (they do not have infrared sensors, and the "reed sensors" follow the progress of the photographic film). Be sure to clarify this information with representatives of the photo lab before sending them film for development. Do not forget to mark the packaging with film. COLOR INFRARED FILM E-6 PROCESS! There are no guarantees at all. It is possible to declare the contents of the package as a "gift".
