Anyone tried this or even heard of this?

I'm all for trying new films but this one looks strange. Sunny-16 exposure would be 1.6 seconds!

Never tried it, but for sunny 16, wouldn't it be 1/1.6 = 0.625 sec. So not as bad as 1.6 sec

Yes, that's right. Not a major improvement, though!

It would a good film for someone needing an excuse to buy a Noctilux.

I used to shoot high contrast black & white copy film for its high resolution. I wonder if this color copy film has high resolution.

Ilford makes, or at least used to make, a direct-postive paper for a 4X5 that had a speed rating of 1.6, and lower. I've shot the stuff at an ISO of 0.8.

This was my first thought. at ISO 1.6, sunny16 would be equivalent to approximately 1/125 at f/1.4.

You can now use your Noctilux in bright daylight haha

Decades ago when I was in college, some classmates used to shoot the Kodak copy film at something like ASA/ISO 8 or so and then underdevelop it. It would do 8x10 B&W prints that had the look and feel of being done with a 4x5 negative, but of course a lot of light was required.

I was trying to think back, and the lowest box speed I can remember was the original Kodachrome at 10, and I never really saw let alone used it, as the Kodachrome 25 was phased in by the time I got into this stuff.

This is Kodak Intermediate film 2254, polyester base, normally used for digital film recording using Arrilaser recorder.

This guy here has actually done some decent night shots with it.

I'm not sure how I would meter it. One suggestion was to set the camera for ISO 25 and overexpose 4 stops.

Just checked the ISO/ASA scale on a couple of light meters

Gossen Luna-Pro ASA: 0.8 to 25000
Sekonic L-758D ISO: 3 to 8000

It's just the scale, but the Gossen kind of surprised me...

I shoot wetplate, which is about ISO 1-8, depending. An outdoor exposure with a fast lens will typically be 2 seconds in sun, 10 in open shade. It's doable, but you need a tripod.

That is Kodak Vision Digital Intermediate Film. Cine film transfer recorders are bright (three-beam laser or a CRT projected down to a 12x24mm or smaller image), hence the low speed.

Thanks for the link! 1/125 @f2 in broad daylight sounds fun to me!

But wait! There's more!

I did not see this on the FPP site, but apparently it recently existed. ISO 0.8!

Yes, it's hard to tell from those examples, but it would be interesting to know. To me such low iso offers no additional benefits (I can live with iso 25 and ND filters - if needed) unless it also offers extremely fine grain...
