      Feels symbolical, and related to the other train image... two iron hands locking solidly.

      Thank you as usual. Microfilm from Kodak and Minicopy HR2 from Fujifilm are very potent in this case. The definition is superb. I think these should be used more by 35mm film camera users.

      This is great indeed! I like the composition and the tones and , of course, the amount of details you received with this film!
      I never heard of this flim but I really would like to use ist for 35mm. To my experiance es´pecially for 35mm the results are depending very much on the film. In most cases I'm disappointed of the graiony result. This one looks completely different. Of course Iso 6 isn't very much but you can use a tripod.
      Do you know where I cant get this film also shipped to Germany?

      Thank you for interest. Until last year Fujifilm provided Minicopy HR2 in 135 size, which had sprocket holes like normal 135 films. Unfortunately HR2 is not sold now. So I switched to Kodak microfilm.

      I have no information how to get this in Germany. I checked it in
      There are some article, so I hope you can get in your country. I got 3 rolls of 100 feet from second hand market in a auction , not from normal market. Sorry I cannot be your help in this point.

      Microfilms other than HR2 lack sprocket holes. For ensure the progress of the film, I made two trial.
      1. Get cheap model of camera which has motor winding shutter and does not have sprocket.
      2. Increasing the fliction of the winding axis by adding a glue underneath, so that sprocket power is not needed.

      Both will work, but the effect depends on each mechanism.

      Compared to HR2, Kodak microfilm has anti-irradiation layer. This is good point.

      I sometimes tried to use this film in my folding cameras. Super Fujicasix fits. But, the film drops in the chamber, failing to get horizontal image. I should apply something in the chamber, If I succeed, I can get 32x56mm sized super fine grained image :-)

      Thank you for your detailed information! At first I though the film would be available in normal 35mm cartriges. But now I see, since it was not made for this purpose it is not easy
      to used it in 35mm cameras. Unfortunately I'm not that talented in working on interiors of a camera. I cannot even use a film without a cartrige.
      Anyway it is a good idea and your results are mazing! Mabey I will try the Agfaorto 25 next time which also has very fine grain although not comparable with microfilm.
      Thanks again!!
