MFS Vision 2383 35mm CinePrint Film
This is an ultra low ISO Film, the same film used my movie companies to print films for distribution to cinemas. This film can be used in cameras at an ISO of 3-6. Shot unfiltered the film will have a heavy blue cast. Shooting with an orange filter will yield a more neutral colour tone.
-This film stock can also be used to contact print negatives to create positive duplicates using an enlarger, A colour head or correction filters recommended for colour balancing.
-Made for development in ECP-2D but can be cross processed in C-41 .
-36+ exposures per roll,
-Ultra low iso +/-6
-Heavy blue bast shot unfiltered, use orange filter for more natural color.
-Clear base bilm, no remjet to remove
The VISION Color Print Film from Kodak has the great look you associate with Kodak films, with rich blacks and neutral highlights. The film is durable and resistant to scratches and dirt. This color print film is worthy of the KODAK VISION Film family name
Color print film is balanced to be printed from a color negative, duplicate negative, or internegative, using either an additive or subtractive printer. Black-and-white (silver image) negatives can be printed to yield a fairly neutral image, although slight coloration may be seen in highlights or shadows.
This film stock is a very popular film stock used to make release prints for projection in cinemas. Its generally not made for use in cameras and therefore can lead to some interesting effects and experimentation. This page will help give you some examples and techniques that you can use with this film.
Firstly there is two main uses for this film, one which, is making positive duplicates from negatives which is essentially the films intended use.
The second is to use it in camera to capture images the same as regular negative film
ISO This Film Has an ISO range Between 1-6 ISO depending on Filtration.
Colour Balanced for Negative film
Vision 2383 Has A clear ESTAR base
Non Remjet Coated
Standard Development in ECP-2D But Can be Developed C41 or B&W

No Reciprocity correction from 1/10-1/3000 second
EXPOSING IN CAMERA
When exposing in Camera a couple of methods can be used
Unfiltered: When shot Unfiltered this film can be exposed between ISO 3-6 and then developed in C41 or B&W. When Developed colour the images will have a very Heavy Blue Cast with Pops of Color such as Yellow. Images can be Developed in C41 and then Scanned/converted to Black and White for a Neutral look.
Filtered: This is the Preferred Method of shooting this Film. A filter Between a Yellow and an Orange Filter will Cut down on the Blue Cast for a More Natural Colour look. When Shooting with an Orange Filter it is recommended to expose an extra stop or 2 Higher at roughly ISO 1 .
This film can be used to create positive copies of negative film by contact printing your negative film on top of the Vision film and exposing with an enlarger. it is generally recommended to use a colour enlarging head to help achieve correct colour balance the same way as RA-4 printing.
This film can be used under a Dim Kodak 13/Dark Yellow Safelight.
This Film can Be used to make Black and White Positives also from Black and White or Colour Negative Film.
It Can also be used for other experimental darkroom uses such as photograms.
This film can be developed in a few different ways:
Standard C-41, this film is safe for processing in Standard lab Processors. For home development in C-41, this film benefits from reduced bleach and fixing Times due to the thin emulsion and the standard for ECP-2D processing, bleach and fix times can be safely reduced by half and fixing is complete when the film base appears clear or with a slight blue cloudiness that will disappear when dry.
This film can be developed as a standard black and white film using standard B&W developers and fixers. Development times and recommended developers will be coming in the near future and will generally be depended on the ISO shot and the contrast desired.
Bleach bypassing can also be recommended and will add density to the negative the equivilant of roughly 1 Stop- 2 stops of extra exposure
E6 Cross Processing is not recommended and results in Blank Negatives.
