Hi all,

I recently got a lot of kodak 16mm color negative films. In the lot, there was this can, without much informations on it. I just know from the seller it's color negative, and one perf. The speed is unknow, also if it's a daylight or tungsten film.

 

Anybody could help me to know what's inside?

 

thanks!

50 ISO daylight stock on Polyester base, similar emulsion to 7201.

The trick is in the Number Code, which is the first four digits of the batch number.

2201 decodes to ESTAR (polyester) base, camera-original film, and 01 for VISION2 50D. The production version of this film on the standard acetate base would be, as Dirk notes, 7201.

 

Properly it should be 3201, as a 2 in the leading position is properly for 35/65/70mm ESTAR, but Kodak has been inconsistent with this in the past (I have a few cans of HAWKEYE Surveillance Film 2485 in 16mm when it should be 3485).

 

You will also sometimes see a 0 as the first digit for a Special Order film - ESTAR versions of VISION2 500T were sold as SO-218 and coded 0218.

 

It's important also to note the Specification Number (SP): 618 in this case, which refers to 16mm with 1R perf on Z-type (3-inch diameter) core in Winding A, not the standard Winding B.

If you want to make it a B-Wind, you need to rewind it ONCE in the darkroom, emulsion in, to a small camera core.

Don't forget that the edge numbers will be around the wrong way.
