==============   Motion picture films    ==========

The films made for motion pictures must be capable of being enlarged and projected on the big screen on the cinema, therefore there are strict requirement for the quality and tolerance of the films made for movie industry. Negative films for motion picture have super tolerances of about /- 15EV, therefore even 500D/500T (with very high light sensitivity) films have very fine pigments. 

The color tone for motion picture negative films is different compare to color negative films. If you haven't tried motion picture negative films, why not try and see ?! You will certainly find yourself addicted to filming motion picture negative films!

===========      What is hand-roll bulked film?     ===========

All the films sold by us are the films made for making motion pictures and are hand-rolled in to canisters. They are suitable for used in a 135mm camera and comes in 36 exposures in one canister. We've tested our hand-rolled films in local market and respond is great. So we can garantee our hand-rolled films is scratch-free and fresh to shoot.

The Bulk film loader counter runs from S to S. Usually if using most film camera could shoot 35-36 exp. If use Auto Film Loading/Advancing camera could shoot down to 33-34 exp due to camera design.

We use  200 or 400 ISO canister on 250D, use 400 ISO canister on 500T and 400T, use 100 ISO canister on 100D. If you purchase 250D on auto-DX camera please check the film canister when you received. Auto-DX camera may need to do EV /-. We will label every film with correct film name as product picture presented.

===========      Our Film Stock Quality     ===========

The number of film used for motion picture industry reduces hugely through out the years as majority of film making resources have been cut.  All of film sold by us are kept in a huge film freezer under -10 degrees C so customers can purchase and use with a ease of mind.

==============   Film Shipping Notice   ==========

ATTENTION : We will label "CAUTION: FILM, PLEASE DO NOT X-RAY" on the package while shipping, and in our experience, ASA/ISO lower 400 are not affected by the security X-RAY. However, please purchase at own consideration.
