    I learned from Large Format Photography forum that Weston film was Super XX and no more available at bigger formats.
    BUT I learned that Kodak STILL PRODUCES XX film for cinematography and available at the name of 5222 and easily seeable at
    http://motion.kodak.com/US/en/motion...Films/5222.htm
    xxxxxxxx lenght
    35mm 400 Core 1737279
    35mm 1000 Core 1982511

    I really dont know it is 400 foots or 400 meters.
    I am very interested in using this film and they say it has a very flat sensitometry.

    I learned that some movie film sellers sell the unused , remaining part of a film after movie shot.
    Do you know such a seller ?

    Thank you ,

    They are called short ends. Or just shorts sometimes.

    I have seen people talk about them, but don't know who sells then.

    I am sure the unit is 400 feet, not 400 meters. Same for the 1000. If it is meters that a whole kilometer on one roll.

    There are lots of talks about use with Leica at Rangefinder Forum, They say many masters uses it still. I saw some examples and there is such metallic glow. Its great. And there are many developer recipes such as D96.

    400 Feet goes 152 dollars here.

    No magic bullet here, just a good film, with good lighting , and development.

    Bob ,

    You might read about the qualities of this film. I saw the examples and I believe it.
    Lots of talks searchable at google on super xx and its a magic bullet.
    I believe the qualities of some chemistry , film and camera lenses. I used many things , printed 100 000 color negatives , scanned thousands of slides with professional drum scanners and printing proof them and worked as Heidelberg Newspaper Printing Machines service man , I really believe in quality.

    So 152/400 is slightly less than $40 per standard bulk roll. With shipping etc. It is probably $45 per bulk roll.

    That seems like a reasonable price. But 400 feet is a lot of film.

    I too have printed well into the hundreds of thousands of prints, I also believe in quality. If SuperXX was such a magical product ,Kodak would have kept it going and every single worker here would have a frezzer full of it.
    I have used it in the past , Its a great film but IMO lots of other great films.
    sorry I cannot agree with you here , there is no such thing as the magic bullet in this thing we call Photography.

    Motion picture Double x is not the same film as the old Super Double X, although it is a pretty decent camera film. I've shot a few hundred feet of it over the years, reminds me of Tri-X from the 70's. Super xx sheet film is gone, but other quality sheet films still exist. I like to live in the present, it's all we got.

    I have an original print of "Charis on the Dunes". It definitely is NOT SOLARIZED.
    With the sun coming directly over the camera lens a round object such as an egg or, as in this case, a human body, the dark lines around the subject are formed as the light attempts to bend around the curve.
    Take an egg, light it directly from the front and photograph it with the lens as close to the light source as physically possible to see the effect.
