I agree. That's the whole point here, high speed and tungsten; something that is inachievable with any color film, save perhaps for Press 1600 and a filter, which would be rubbish anyways.
I frankly don't understand why there are fast daylight films.... I mean, if it's daylight you don't need that speed! 400 on up should be tungsten, eh? Viva la película cinematográfica!
Try photographing birds with a long telephoto lens and fast shutter speeds. 3200 seems slow...
Silly question I suspect but can't you process the 500T in standard E-6? Or is there a different process for the tungsten balanced slides? Or is there remjet on the film stock?
Perhaps a fresh thread should be made to either a) point them to this thread or b) just a new thread.
I know that when I'm surfing the "New Posts" section I might not click on something that appears to be uninteresting or whatever, and so if they looked once, they might not look again. And although this does relate to "Tungsten slide films" kinda, it's really become more about using movie film in still cameras which I think is something people are very interested in.
Or better yet, put it on the FREE FREE... stuff thread or in the For Sale classifieds, for $0.
P.S. I got the PM from BWPositive and that sounds great! I'll probably finish up my 1st roll tonight... so c'mon Duncan! :D
I'm sure people would take you up on the offer if only they knew
Well if I put it in the FREE FREE FREE thread I'd get people taking me up on it just 'cause it's free! I'm more than willing to give up the dollar worth of film and the bulk loading cartridges and the couple of bucks in postage to folks that are seriously interested in trying this out, but I'm not looking to send film into everyone's "that might be neat someday" junk drawer. Heck, I'm seriously interested in this but even I'm having trouble finding the time to shoot the stuff! (The crazy low temps here in Chicago aren't helping.)
In answer to the previous question: yes, it's got Remjet backing.
I'd love to join in and shoot a roll but I think living in the UK will make the logistics too complicated.
In reality though, I think you should just charge a bit for it. I'd be totally fine paying $5 for a roll, shipping included or something around there.
Anyways, it's your call..
