Their first ever color negative film made entirely from emulsion to cassette at the HARMAN technology factory in Mobberley, HARMAN Phoenix 200 is a brand-new ISO 200 35mm color negative film and an incredibly exciting milestone.
This quirky, experimental film produces high-contrast images with strong, visible grain and punchy, vibrant colors. With a DX coded cassette and a box speed of ISO 200, Phoenix can be rated between ISO 100 and 400 but performs best in good, consistent light. On brighter days or when shooting into the light there is a possibility of halation. Getting the exposure right will help to get the best results so we suggest metering for the mid tones to retain shadow or highlight detail, (over- or under-exposure is not Phoenix’s friend)!
Part of the fun of shooting film is expecting the unexpected and this film delivers exactly that, from its uniquely colored negatives (no orange mask), to chance encounters with coating anomalies. Hold back your expectations and enjoy the experience!
Like the mythical Phoenix, this new film represents hope, rebirth, and transformation. It signals the start of a new legacy for HARMAN and the beginning of an exciting new chapter for one of the world’s largest photographic film manufacturers. As HARMAN's first color film, it is not without some quirks. Sales of this film will be used to refine and improve the formulations, coating capabilities, and color technology. The aim is that each new HARMAN color film will be an improvement on the previous.
