View Full Version : Kodak Ekachrome Color Duplicating Film 6121, anyone?
Guess I wasn't paying real attention, and only looked at the price.
I have a box of 4x5 Kodak Ekachrome Color Duplicating Film 6121.
I understand that this is used for slide duplication work, and is tungsten balanced?
Can I use this as "Traditional" film, or no?
Has anyone used it as such, for outdoors?
Or, even for indoors?
What ISO is it?
No... has no contrast
No... balanced for tungsten
about 6-12 ISO and there is a filter factor you have to deal with, what's marked on the box is just a starting point because the color of the light source will affect it too.
Hmm, doesn't seem worth using for outside work.
How about inside?
You could obviously filter for daylight use, but you'd have to waste some film determining the effective ASA. A bigger problem might be that the emuslsion is too old and prone to fog
or crossover in the highlights.
when I was doing dupes back in the day I would have to run about a half dozen tests to get the color and exposure value nailed down for each emulsion batch. Once set up it was brain dead from there.
My favorite duping film was Astia 100F, which could also be used for general shooting. But
high-quality dupes require masking the original.
