ETERNA 500

Overview

Vitalize Imagination!   Exceptional Grain & Outstanding Gray Balance

Setting a new standard for motion picture film, this high-speed (E.I.500) color negative film achieves ultra-fine grain, natural skin tones and outstanding gray balance. Dramatically improved grain produces natural results for even the most sophisticated studio work including digital processing and computer graphics.

This film’s subtle expressive power and ability to capture detail brings imagination to life.

In order to simulate conditions closest to practical use, exposure was made under a 3200K tungsten light source, through a Fuji SC-41 ultraviolet absorbing filter. Processing was carried out under standard conditions and the three color densities were measured, producing the results indicated in the graph above.
