Macophot - IR820C - Infrared 820nm - BW Reversal Film
MACO IR 820c and MACO AURA are medium-speed black-and-white films with panchromatic sensitization and infrared sensitization up to 850 nm. This infrared (IR) sensitization, reaching far beyond the visible range, allows for strong IR effects (black sky, Wood effect). The basic medium-speed emulsion makes for fine grain and excellent gradation as well as high resolving power. While MACO IR 820c is provided with an anti-halation (AH) backing that effectively re-duces light scattering in the emulsion and improves sharpness, this AH backing was omitted in the MACO AURA in order to create halos (or auras) which are often desired in IR photography.
MACO IR 820c and MACO AURA lend themselves to all kinds of pictorial applications, such as architecture, landscape, and portrait, to name just a few. These films can be processed by all types of black-and-white developers. The clear base allows application as black-and-white slide film. The polyester base used for medium-format and cut-sheet film offers the highest standard in terms of archival stability.
Film Format: 35mm film.
Film type: Black and White Reversal Film.
If this is an expired film, it is untested and no guarantees are given.
Our expired film can be bought in several options, this depends on the specific film.
Film with “no box” means that we could not save the outer package, due to its age.
Packages may look different than shown because the designs change through the years. Also, some may have a little bit of age to them as well. If you want a new-looking film you should buy a new film and not expired right?
Quick tip on using expired film.
Some film might be stored in a fridge and some might not, so shooting expired film is always a chance of luck.
Because the film is expired you should keep in mind you could adjust the ISO to its “new age”.
You know, have a little bit more sensitivity for it.
This should only be applied to color negative film, slide film is ofter better to shoot on “normal “box speed.
For every TEN YEARS, a roll of film is expired shoot it ONE-STOP LOWER.
So for example you are using a 400 ISO film from 2009.
You should shoot it one-stop lower so that would be?
200! Right on!
And now if it was a pack of expired film from 1999?
100! Again your right!
You could also first meter the scene and then lower your settings so you get one-stop lower.
