This film in real life this film is a Dactylographic film, used in the study of finger prints!
HOW DO I SHOOT iso 0.8?
If you are not using a hand-held light meter, dial iso 25 into your camera's light meter. Once you expose for iso 25, open up your lens 5 f-stops for iso 0.8.
Notes from FPP's Michael Raso - "When shooting such (an incredible!) low asa, I shoot in daylight with my lens fully open at about 1/10th or 1/15th sec. I highly recommend the Gossen Luna Pro F light meter. It dials down to iso 0.8."
