New slide film from Konica

New slide film from Konica - 

 Add Comment


Konica are adding to their Centuria range of films with the launch of a new slide film. Konica Chrome Centuria promises a new level of image quality with superb colour reproduction across the spectrum - from primary to hard-to-capture intermediate colours. Rich and smooth gradations from highlights through shadows allow realistic reproduction of nuances of texture, bringing images to life.
The new film will be available in a choice of speeds: ISO100, and, for the first time from Konica, in ISO200. Both films come in 24 and 36 exposure lengths. The 200 version is available immediately, with Centuria Chrome 100 phased in later in the year.
With colour reproduction in reversal films being decided by the performance of the couplers, Konica have developed a new yellow couple to give a realistic depiction of lemon colour - a colour which has traditionally been difficult to reproduce accurately. At the same time, the number of molecules has been reduced and the volume of oil in the coating cut back to make the coating thinner to deliver improved image sharpness.
Konica have also developed Precisely Divided Function (PDF) Crystal technology for dramatic gains in photosensitive efficiency and depiction of highlights. The development control layer of the crystals also minimised variation in the colour balance during processing.
The introduction of Konica Centuria Chrome 100 and 200 means that all colour film manufactured by Konica for the amateur market will be under the Centuria banner for better customer recognition.
