This film is probably the most used and well known b&w super8 film. Not only because of it’s high sensitivity. It has more beautiful black tones, grey tones and whites than any other film. The S8RL believes that it’s the best all-round b&w stock there is.
This film seems to have a larger exposure latitude than 7278, but it is also more sensitive for overexposure. Best used when you have different light situations, or when you have low light available.
