Description
Seven rolls (camera spool), of Kodachrome II 16mm motion picture film, are from the actual stock that we were issued. Note the expiration date "June/68". They are Type A, and have an exposure index of 40. We used it for indoor/outdoor scenes. When outdoors (sunlight), a Wratten #85 filter was to be used for proper color balance, with an exposure index of 25. These speeds (40 & 25) were considered "fast" during the 1960's.

Description
These seven - 100 foot rolls (camera spool) of Kodachrome II motion picture film, are also from the actual stock that was issued. Expiration date is also 'June/68'. They have an exposure index of 25, and were for outdoor scenes (sunlight). A Wratten #85 filter was to be used for proper color balance. When I first arrived at DASPO/Pacific (Department of the Army Special Photographic Office), we were using the Bell & Howell (B&H), 35mm Motion Picture Camera (referred to as the EYEMO). 100 foot rolls of 35mm film were used in these cameras. They were 'spring/hand wound motors'. Also, we used the B&H 16mm Motion Picture Cameras (referred to as the FILMO). 100 foot rolls of 16mm film were used in these cameras. They were 'spring/hand wound motors'. Within a year, we received more updated 16mm Motion Picture Cameras (Arriflex BL, and the Arriflex 16S). They were much lighter, and with better lenses. Also battery operated, which we used with rechargable 'battery belts'.

Description
These seven rolls of Kodak Vericolor II Professional, Type S, Color negative film are from actual stock that we were issued to the DASPO (Department of the Army Special Photographic Office) Still Photographers. Note expiration date Feb/82. This film was issued to the Still Photographers at the time they were using the twin lens-reflex cameras. With this type of film, a 2.25 x 2.25 negative was produced. It is also known as 120, or 220 film. A 120 roll would cover (12) exposures. The U.S. Army wanted the 2.25 x 2.25 film for file records. As better film emulsions became available with the 35 mm format, some of the Still Photographers would photograph with 35mm still cameras. Many Army Still Photographers carried both types of cameras and film. Kodak has enhanced the emulsion and offers faster speeds of this film. It is still 'the' film choice, when photographing studio or outside subjects.
