Filter Effect on Purple Film Processed by C-41 and E-6

Filter effects on Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 films were investigated. The films were developed by C-41 (Colur Negative) and E-6 (Colour Positive) process.


Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 films were sent by cool parcel as same as Kodak Aerochrome. And I felt the question, "Lomochrome Purple and Kodak Aerochrome are same?”. Aerochrome have several features: AR-6 or E-6 process, infrared sensitivty, filter effect, high fading rate… I try to investigate the developing process, filter effects and infrared sensitivity.
