    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.
