What is electronic output film?
I know what the copy film is, but I've never heard of that other stuff.

Umm... a marketing tool to relabel film so people will buy it in the "digital age?"
Seriously, though, I believe it is for "film printers." Basically, a digital process to convert an electronically stored image to film (like from a computer; digital image, powerpoint slide, a scan, video frame, etc.). Basically, I think it's for an electronic form of film copying... though this does not rule out my third joke.
Haha! So basically it's duplicating film with the "digital" label or marketing purposes, MAYBE it's designed for a digital projector rather than duplicating from another slide and that somehow changes something in the image to give it a little more sharpness and "reality" compared to what would happen if I Digital he projected image were sent on a normal piece of film?

Basically, though, think of it as a way to make a slide out of a non-film image (or after manipulating something electronically). Kind of the reverse of scanning.
Lets say you made a graph with computer software and wanted to put it on film for some reason. You could use a "film printer" to make a slide out of it - by "printing" it to film. Whether the film in question is actually optimized for this, or merely marketed as such, I do not know. Even if "optimized," I would imagine it would work in the traditional manner after some testing to dial it in.

"Free (Expired) Kodak Film"
I have a film printer; used it a few times when I created PowerPoint presentations and didn't have a digital projector. Can output digital images to film. In this case, I used slide film so I could project my presentation with a slide projector. Its also an easy way to create title slates for slide presentations if (as members of this forum would) you use a (gasp!) slide projector for your slide shows. Haven't used it in a while; someday I'll get it out and post it for sale or for free here. Though I never used Electronic Output Film since I had a freezer full of Velvia at the time I was using the film printer.
Leica M(P, 2, 3?) never ready case. Nose is scuffed, internal fabric is torn where it flexes and the bottom hinge is beginning to tear.
1/4" tripod screw. The back flap has been restitched and I'd replace the strap.
$6.00 will cover shipping to US.
Some might say I have a bad attitude! Too bad.
