Argenti Scale-X ~ Variable Speed Emulsion, Positive or Negative Film ~ 35mm 36exp

£5.30 Inc. vat

Argenti are another lovely bunch of people that we are pleased to be working with…we love enthusiasm for film photography!

Scale-X  is a black-and-white film with a variable sensitivity of 100 to 800asa.  It can be processed to either negative film or to lovely black and white slides as it is on a clear base.  It excels at this and can be processed using our currently under testing reversal service (when available) or better still at home in the Bellini Reversal kit.

For b&w reversal processing stick to 200asa or within half a stop of that please 🙂

These are development times that we have found for producing negatives from this film stock, we have not yet tested these ourselves however….
