ORWO Negative Film NP 5
As a standard material for indoor and outdoor recordings at high sensitivity, the NP 5 is characterized by outstanding image sharpness and low graininess. Thanks to these properties, it particularly meets the requirements that large-scale projection (wide screen, total vision, etc.) places on the recording material. The gradation curve of the NP 5 is stretched and runs in a straight line over a wide range.
The gamma-time curve shows that there are possibilities for variation in the development. The NP 5 is produced as a thin film on a gray base.
