Data-Chrome! That sounds like a great idea, they are just two counties away from me, about 150 miles so mail will arrive overnight.
I should try Data-Chrome and the use of an 82A and 82B filters.
It is certainly interesting how those dealers that sell CR-200 blatantly misrepresent this film and its results up to the point of denying anything is wrong when you ask them about the off color results, they will just ignore the inquiry at first, and then once I resubmit the email they just claim everyone else is getting good results with the film with no complaints.
They do of course, offer a refund which is good but you are still out the time and effort along with the processing costs which are more than the film costs.
I will bet this film is a pain in the ass for these reputable dealers, they know it gives weird results, must be embarrasing to sell a questionable film like this and then claim "its fine" and then even display a few sample images that look great.
The CN-200? people seem to really like it, just a few complaints about grain, has nice color rendition that is quite desireable, this film was first marketed as Rollei scan film CN-400 then Rollei/Maco has found that rating it at 200 ASA it does a much better job, this is the Aviphot 400X.
I have some of the discontinued Aviphot N400 which has the orange mask, it is marketed By Macodirect.de as Maco TCS 400 Eagle traffic surveilance film, the images from this film are really nice with little grain, powerful color with a vintage look, this might be a good film to copy over onto Kodak Vision motion picture print film to make slides. I have copied the original Leverkusen Agfa Vista 200 on to the Kodak Vision print film with spectacular results.
