    I've got a few rolls of kodak B&W aerial film in the deep freeze. I know that Kodak made aerial duplicating film, so I was wondering which emulsions are meant for taking and which emulsion were made for duping? Any idea:confused:s??

    There is a difference between Emulsion #, and Product type.

    SO-192 is a type, not an emulsion # and denotes a special order. The emulsion number is a long string of numbers and letters that encodes the exact information about when the material was made and when it was packaged.
