JCH Streetpan 400 B&W 35mm Film is full of character and versatility. StreetPan 400 is a contrasty near-infrared panchromatic black and white film. It is very fine grain with a high speed making this film ideal for use in a wide range of light and weather conditions. Due to its sensitivity to red light, JCH StreetPan 400 is the optimum film for dawn, dusk and winter photography.
The spectral sensitivity is extended into the near-infrared range of the energy spectrum (panchromatic up to 750 nm) helping to make images sharp and well edged. The near IR sensitivity and the strong response to red light allow for nocturne red flash photography as well as daylight photography. The film sensitivity can vary with processing. JCH StreetPan 400 can be exposed as a 200 to 500 ASA/ISO film and the image contrast can be controlled by the processing parameters.
Although featuring high ISO speed, the graininess of the emulsion is very low thanks to the 2-layer emulsion architecture. The low granularity makes the film very scanner-friendly and the scans deliver noise-free images in the image highlights. The low fog level at standard processing temperature and at high-temperature processing makes the film even more suitable for development in large and small processing machines. The image contrast can be controlled by the processing parameters.
Although high speed and near-IR sensitized, this film shows excellent storage stability before use and low latent image drift after exposure. JCH StreetPan 400 has a gelatine back coating to prevent scratches on the back of the film which could be picked up by image scanners. Base substrate layers provide permanent anti-static properties to the film, at exposure, and after processing.
