September 2005 • E-130 TECHNICAL DATA / COLOR REVERSAL FILM KODAK EKTACHROME 64T Professional Film This medium-speed color transparency film features excellent color reproduction, very fine grain, and very high sharpness. It is designed for exposure with tungsten illumination (3200 K). The film is an excellent choice for photographing products, room interiors, titles, and artwork. Primary applications include catalog, furniture, and architectural photography, and copying. KODAK EKTACHROME 64T Professional Film has an intended exposure range of 1/10,000 second to 10 seconds. Use this film to produce color transparencies for viewing with 5000 K illumination. You can also use the transparencies for printing by photomechanical methods and by photographic methods of direct duplication and direct reversal printing. In addition, you can scan transparencies for digital printing and for graphic arts and photo CD applications. SIZES AVAILABLE Sizes and catalog numbers may differ from country to country.

STORAGE AND HANDLING Load and unload roll film in subdued light. Load and unload sheet film in total darkness using light-tight film holders. Store unexposed film in a refrigerator at 13°C (55°F) or lower in the original sealed package. To avoid moisture condensation on film that has been refrigerated, allow the film to warm up to room temperature before opening the package. Process film as soon as possible after exposure. Protect transparencies from strong light, and store them in a cool, dry place. For more information, see KODAK Publication No. E-30, Storage and Care of KODAK Photographic Materials—Before and After Processing. ©Eastman Kodak Company, 2005 DARKROOM RECOMMENDATIONS Do not use a safelight. Handle unprocessed film in total darkness. EXPOSURE Exposure Index Numbers Use the exposure index numbers below with cameras or light meters marked for ISO or ASA speeds or exposure indexes (EI). Do not change the film-speed setting when metering through a filter. Metering through filters may affect meter accuracy; see your meter or camera manual for specific information. For critical work, make a series of test exposures. Light Source KODAK WRATTEN Gelatin Filter Exposure Index Fluorescent and High-Intensity Discharge Lamps Use the color-compensating filters and exposure adjustments below as starting points to expose this film under fluorescent or high-intensity discharge lamps. For critical applications, make a series of test exposures under your actual conditions. Vary the recommended filtration by at least ±CC10, and increase or decrease exposure accordingly. To avoid the brightness and color variations that occur during a single alternating-current cycle, use exposure times of 1/60 second or longer with fluorescent lamps; with high-intensity discharge lamps, use exposure times of 1/125 second or longer. Fluorescent Lamps Daylight None 64 White Photolamp (3400 K) 81A 50 Warm White Daylight or Electronic Flash 85B 40 Warm White Deluxe Tungsten (3200 K) Tungsten Light For best color rendition, use tungsten photolamps (3200 K) at their rated voltage. If voltage varies significantly, the color of the lamp will change. Other light sources may not give equally good results, even with filters. Unless you want a special effect, do not mix light sources, particularly tungsten light and daylight.

The information in the table may not apply to other manufacturers' high-pressure sodium-vapor lamps due to differences in spectral characteristics. Note: Consult the manufacturer of high-intensity lamps for ozone ventilation requirements and safety information on ultraviolet radiation. Some primary color filters were used in the previous tables to reduce the number of filters and keep the exposure adjustment to a minimum. Red filters were substituted for equivalent filtration in magenta and yellow. Blue filters were substituted for equivalent filtration in cyan and magenta. 2 KODAK EKTACHROME 64T Professional Film • E-130 Adjustments for Long and Short Exposures PRINTING TRANSPARENCIES No filter correction or exposure compensation is normally required for EKTACHROME 64T Professional Film at exposure times of 1/10,000 second to 10 seconds. For a 100-second exposure, increase exposure by 1/3 stop and add a CC05R filter. For more specific information when using sheet film, see the product packaging. Exposure index and filter recommendations for the specific emulsion number are listed on the box. Included are recommendations at 1/10, 5, 30, and 100 seconds. You can reproduce images made on EKTACHROME 64T Professional Film by using a variety of Kodak materials: PROCESSING Process EKTACHROME 64T Professional Film in KODAK Chemicals, Process E-6. For consistent processing of this and all other EKTACHROME Films, use a lab that is a member of the KODAK Q-LAB Process Monitoring Service.

KODAK EKTACHROME 64T Professional Film • E-130 3 SCANNING TRANSPARENCIES For Graphic Arts Applications The KODAK EKTACHROME Film family is characterized by sets of image dyes which perform similarly when scanned. The scanner operator can set up one basic tone scale and color-correction channel for all EKTACHROME Films and then optimize the tone scale and gray balance for the requirements of individual images. Use the KODAK Color Input Target / Q-60E1 (4 x 5inch transparencies) or Q-60E3A (35 mm slide) to establish the setup for KODAK EKTACHROME Films on all scanners. This target meets ANSI standards and represents the dye sets of all EKTACHROME Films. For Photo CD Applications Use the Universal E-6 Film Term to scan all KODAK EKTACHROME films for Photo CD Imaging Workstation applications. For Output to a Photo CD Player: Using the Universal E-6 Film Term should result in an image that closely matches your original transparency in density, tone scale, and overall color balance when viewed on a player. For Output to Devices Other than Photo CD Players: The YCC data that results when using the Universal E-6 Film Term is capable of producing a high-quality duplicate of your original transparency in terms of density, tone scale, and color reproduction. Final quality of your reproduced image depends on the capabilities of your output device, the viewing environment, and the rendering path used. 4 KODAK EKTACHROME 64T Professional Film • E-130 CURVES Spectral-Sensitivity Curve 2.0 Diffuse rms Granularity* 11 (very fine) *Read on a gross diffuse visual density of 1.0, using a 48-micrometre aperture, 12X magnification.
