Vintage Svema Foto 100 in 35mm x 36 exposure format, extremely rare - Ships from USA
Svema films were manufactured using classic emulsions with rich
silver content. This resulted in a large grayscale reproduction.
Unlike modern flat crystal films, which are very unforgiving to use, these films allow beginners to produce quality images. The nature of the film also easily allows large, grain free, enlargements to be made from negatives. These rolls are outdated vintage but are still providing interesting results
Traditional Black and White Film
35 mm Format Film
Handle the wet emulsion with care. We recommend the use of hardener in the stop bath or fixer.
Never use a stop-bath with a higher concentration than 2% -- in fact, it is recommended to use plain water in place of stop bath.
Cold stored Rolls
Best to use a manual wind camera as the "tape" securing the film to the spindle may come off with "force" exerted by a motor drive. If the film "feels" like it is not going be winding back into the cassette make sure to open the camera in a darkroom or changing bag.
