Kodak Verichrome Film 1932

The introduction of Verichrome Film in the Spring of 1931 marked one of the greatest advances in the history of photography.


1. Double Coated. It has two layers of sensitive silver emulsion - a Fast one over a Slow.

2. High Speed. good pictures can be made earlier in the day - and the year.

3. Enormous Latitude. Because of this Double Coating, Verichrome allows remarkable latitude. A spool of Verichrome has been has been given relative exposured ranging from 1 to 2,400 and all have yielded printable negatives.

4. Colour Sensitivity. Verichrome is particularly sensitive to greens and yellows - the colours which predominate in nature.

5. Non-Halation. A special red backing on the non-sensitive side, prevents halation and ensures clear-cut detail in brightest highlights. (This red backing disappears on development).

6. Translucence. This makes Verichrome negatives particularly suitable for enlarging.
