CHS 100 II 135-36 is an orthopanchromatic black and white film with reduced red sensitivity and a sensitivity gap in the blue/green area. These characteristics combine to create a film which renders skies with better cloud contrast as well as balanced skin tones. Two emulsions are coated on a PET base which has two anti-halation layers to improve sharpness. Overall, it's designed to give a classic 1960's film look to photographs. 36-exposure 35mm film.
CHS 100 II produces delicate, soft, airy images with open shadows, creamy highlights and a smooth tonal transition.
Made from two emulsions coated in a single layer on an archival clear PET 100 micron base, which results in very large exposure latitude. CHS 100 II responds very well to push-processing.
35mm format CHS100 II has two anti-halation layers (between the emulsion and the base and on the backside), making it ultra sharp. The backside AH layer also diminishes curling and reduces the light-piping effect. This effect of light penetrating through the base into the cartridge is immanent to all polyester-based films and cannot be fully prevented. CHS 100 II should be protected from bright light which can fog the first few frames. It is best to be loaded in the shadow or subdued light.
CHS 100 II sharpness and contrast can be managed with various developers: a classic look in standard developers, balanced contrast and optimal sharpness in FX-39 and elevated contrast with extra high definition in Adonal/Rodinal. Tanning developers are not recommended.
