Washi R Reversal - 35mm Film
Washi R is a truly unique film. It is a black and white reversal emulsion on paper backing!
This means that it returns a strip of paper with positive images 'printed' on it, as seen in this video:
(Photos on the strip were taken by Amandine Besacier)
This film can be used for all kind of subjects, especially for artistic or decorative projects where the film can really be seen as an object in itself.
Being coated on a thick paper it is not possible to use it in automatic camera. Please be advised that it is an experimental product and it is recommended to use it with fragile or sensitive camera. Manual or semi-automatic reflex bodies are the best options to use this film.
"R" has a narrow exposure latitude and must be precisely exposed at 100 ISO.
This film can be loaded in classic processing reels and must be processed manually with specific chemistry for black & white slide, such like reversal kits by FOMA, ROLLEI or BELLINI. The paper base of the film being much thicker, the re-exposure time will be increase by 50 %. It is possible to use the same processing time as FOMA PAN R.
