    From the makers of exotic films, here comes another one!
    Svema has done it again: a super slow ISO 0.8 B&W 35mm film and this time it is super positive!

    Hello Ricardo and all,

    whatever it is called, this film is not a real Svema. There is a company called Astrum Ltd in Shostka, which in fact is a small piece of the once huge Svema plant. They sell films made by other plants now. So, I suppose this film was coated by Agfa (Belgium) or Kodak.

    If such a miracle as a resurrection of Svema would happen, we would already know about it in Russia.

    Sorry about this not-so-positive comment.

    That is NOT a reversal film.

    But a direct-positive film. Such films are common outside the consumer world. They are designed in a way that they yield a positive image in a common one-step development.

    For years such a film is offered as type 135 by Maco as
