Re: automatic filmspeed?

The new film is a replacement for their Ektapress 400.  Ektapress is a 
fairly contrasty film designed specifically to be used for difficult 
and mixed lighting conditions.

I fould it handled mixed lighting very nicely, and I often rated it at 
3200 ASA

Anyhow, when they updated the film recetly, they were able to increase 
it's lattitude even more, and it can be exposed anyware between 200 
and 1600 ASA.  It's not "Automatic" but it does have a very large 
latitude range, and I believe it's still nominally rated at 400.

I don't thinks it's avaliable for motion picture......yet....
