“V” is a panchromatic film handcoated on Gampi paper handmade by Awagami Factory in Japan, with high transparency, soft texture and wide latitude exposure.
The film is sensitive to all colors and ideal to shoot landscapes with a unique pictorial effect. You can use it also for portraits and other classic subjects.
120 roll films can be loaded like any normally. Paper film is more fragile than other. With 135 format it is important to use gently the advance lever and never try to exceed 16 exposures, otherwise there is serious risk to damage the film. Film “V” in 135 will not work with camera using automatic advance systems because it is loaded in recycled 135 cartridge with no DX code.
As they are very thin and flexible, paper based films cannot be loaded on modern processing reels. However, it is still possible to use dedicated separating stripe system produced by Film Washi and also old tanks like “Correx” or “Souplinox”.
