1 Roll / 24 exposures / Fresh-Dated / Process: ECN-2*
Kodak 500T is a high speed, medium contrast (iso 500) tungsten-balanced film. Tungsten films are designed to be shot with "hot lights" or movie lights. This film also works wonderfully in indoor incandescent lights as demonstrated by Michael Raso's "Mom's Meatloaf" shot below. Kodak's "proprietary advanced Dye Layering Technology (DLT) gives you noticeably reduced grain in shadows, so you can push the boundaries of exposure further and still get excellent results. And when scanning low-light scenes, VISION3 500T Film yields higher signal-to-noise ratios for unprecedented image quality. What’s more, VISION3 500T Film’s extended highlight latitude gives you greater flexibility when lighting extreme situations, and lets you pull even more detail out of highlights. Whether you’re behind the camera or in the postproduction suite, you can bring your project to life as never before."
Note: Kodak 500T can also be used in daylight as a 320 iso film (with a orange 85 filter over your lens)

Why can't I process this film at my favorite C-41 lab?
Kodak's Vision 3 motion picture films have an additional layer (on the shiny, not the emulsion side) called a "Rem Jet". This layer aids the film traveling at 24fps in motion picture cameras. Although technically this film can be processed C-41, this Rem Jet will foul commercial lab's equipment and there for can not be commercially processed.
What commercial lab will process my negs, scan and or print for me?
You can send your film to the Little Film Lab in California, USA. This is the only lab that has recently tested our Hand-Rolled Kodak Vision 3 films and can handle processing- http://www.littlefilmlab.com/services/
Are you sure my local or favorite lab can't process this film?!
YES! WE ARE SURE! This film MUST BE self-processed or sent to the Little Film Lab. Do not send out this film to your regular processor. It will be returned to you or your actions will foul your lab's gear. :(
How do I process this film with FPP's Unicolor c-41 Kit?
In addition to the normal directions for C-41 home-processing please add the following step.
After your Blix, rinse your film in a half bucket of hot water (80 - 102 degrees F). With your thumb, gently rub the non-emulsion side of your film as you remove it from your film reel. Careful not to scratch the emulsion of your film. Final rinse under running water before submerging your film into the two-minute Stabilizer. You will see the black rem jet in your water as you rinse.
That's it! Hang your film to dry and then scan! Enjoy!!!!
