Hello,

I'm about to embark on something I've never done before... Copy work. With color transparency film. I normally do b&w work, so I know very little about this.
I normally use Kodakchrome 64T for the use of incandecent light bulbs. I found, somewhere online, a box of Kodak 6121 duplicating film (4x5) for a dollar. However, I can't determine whether this film is tungsten balanced or not. (I know, I could try and see what happens, but that would cost me a few dollars to process, and if I can get an answer for free then that saves me money and time spent running to and from the lab).
If it isn't tungsten, I'm not going to cry about it, it was only a buck to buy. Also, what would this film normally be used for?

Thanks / Thomas

I used this film years ago for photo - comp
I believe it is daylight balance 6121, the tungston balance film I believe was 6118.
May be a little flat after all these years but by all means give it a try.

Good Afternoon, Grant,

My memory is different than Bob's; I think that the 6121 is a tungsten film. I don't know about copy work, but 6121 is absolutely terrific for night shots. Try an E. I. of around 8.

Thanks all for your input.

I think I'll have to simply try it out... If I remember I'll report back here what I found.
