KODAK EKTACHROME 100D Color Reversal Film 7285 in the
Super 8 format. 100D Colour Reversal Film features bright
saturated colors, fine grain with excellent sharpness.
It is important to note that KODAK EKTACHROME
100D Color Reversal Camera Film 7285 is a daylight
balanced film. No additional filtration is required when
using the film in daylight conditions. The film cartridge is
notched appropriately for the speed and color balance,
which will allow it to perform optimally in automatic
cameras.
Many older manual cameras will require some special
attention. Due to historical reasons (e.g. the films available
at their time of manufacture), most of these cameras
assume that the film to be used is tungsten balanced and
either EI40 or EI160. (See Below)

FILTER USAGE
Many cameras utilize an internal conversion filter to
convert daylight illumination into a tungsten balance. This
amber-colored filter is to be placed into the optical path when
the manual selector is placed on the sun setting (the sun
icon). With the daylight balanced 100D Film, it will be
necessary to disengage this filter. Although it may sound
counter-intuitive, this is accomplished by setting the
manual exposure setting to the tungsten setting (the bulb
icon), no matter what conditions you are shooting under. If
you will be using 100D Film under tungsten illumination,
we recommend the use of an 80A external filter.

EXPOSURE
KODAK EKTACHROME 100D Colour Reversal Camera Film
7285 is an ISO 100 rated product. It is important when
exposing the film under daylight conditions that the
camera is set as close to ISO 100 as possible. Some (older)
cameras may automatically set the exposure to ISO 160
(which is a default setting based on the former KODAK
EKTACHROME 160T Film). At an ISO 160 exposure setting
(approximately + 1/2 stop underexposed), results in many
situations should still be acceptable.
It is believed that the majority of S8 cameras
manufactured prior to 1970 came with a fixed film
exposure setting of ISO 40. At an ISO 40 exposure setting
(approximately 1 1/4 stop overexposed) the film would
require either the use of a 0.3 Neutral Density filter.
Please Note: This film stock has been discontinued by Kodak and since purchased by The Old Film Company stored in our film fridge, but may not have been prior.
