AGFA ASP 400S 35mm x 45.75m NP | unperforated on spool
PLEASE NOTE | This is an unperforated film!
Panchromatic negative black & white film
ASP 400 S is a panchromatic halftone aerial negative film with near IR sensitivity. The emulsion iscoated onto a transparent polyester base providing excellent dimensional stability.
Thickness of the polyester base- PE1: 0.10 mm / 0.004” and PE0: 0.064 mm / 0.0025".n
The very fine graininess and the high speed make this ASP 400 S an ideal for use in trafficinfringement cameras in a wide range of weather conditions.
The low fog level at high temperature processing makes the film suitable for high volumeprocessing applications.
Due to its sensitivity to red light, Aviphot Pan 400 S is the optimum film for dawn, dusk and winterphotography.
Its speed and sensitometric characteristics make the film extremely suitable for low light and lowsun angle photography (long shadow areas) and for wide latitude photographic exposure (highcontrast license plates together with facial recognition or for uncritical exposure procedures).
The spectral sensitivity of ASP 400 S is extended in the near infrared range of the energyspectrum. As a result, the film offers excellent penetration through haze, fog and otheratmospheric conditions liable to affect the image quality. Due to the reduced scattering by theatmosphere, images are sharp and well edged.
The near IR sensitivity and the strong response to red light allow for nocturne red flashphotography as well as daylight photography.· Although featuring high speed, the graininess of the emulsion is low thanks to the 2-layeremulsion architecture. The low granularity makes the film very scanner-friendly and the scansdeliver noise-free images in the image highlights.
The low fog level at standard processing temperature and at high temperature processing makesthe film even more suitable for development in large and small processing machines. TheASP400S has been designed for optimal development in Agfa G74c chemistry. This combinationlowers fog levels and minimizes the grain level in the image.
The image contrast can be controlled by the processing parameters. ASP 400 S can beprocessed as a low contrast film for good and average weather photography and as a medium contrast film for bad weather photography.
Processing can take place in a continuous automatic processor or manually (f.e. spiral tank).
Although high speed and near-IR sensitised, ASP 400 S shows excellent storage stability beforeuse and low latent image drift after exposure.
