Adox Scala 160 ist a black and white reversal film intended for reversal processing. This is not a negative film which could be reversal processed rather it has been designed especially for this purpose.
If Scala is reversal porcessed optimal exposure shall be set to 160 ASA.
Adox Scala 160 is coated onto a clear triacetate base and features an increased silver content (in comparison to a negative film) thus it yields a DMAX of 3,6 and higher (depending on the reversal process used).
Adox Scala 160 has an anti-halation layer inbetween the emulsion and the base for optimal scharpness and detail contrast.
Adox Scala 160 is practically APX 100 with a slightly finer grain and lower speed plus an increased silver content, the clear base and the AHU. In the reversal process it's speed raises to 160 ASA. Shot to a negative it shall be exposed to 80-100 ASA (see ADOX Silvermax).
Base: Adox Scala 160 is coated onto 120 micron clear Triacetate
Formats: 35mm film 135/36
DX-Coding: Because Adox films do not have a DX code please set the camera's light meter manually to 160 ASA.
- Between 1/10.000 and 1/2 s no adjustement is necessary
- From 1s of exposure time: +1/2
- From 10s of exposure time: +1
- From 100s of exposure time: +2
