KODAK Control Strips, Process C-41

August, 2013

Kodak is now shipping the following KODAK Control Strip Process C-41 products which incorporate a physical change in the 35mm film used in the production of the pre-exposed strips

The film has changed from non-perforated film to perforated film.

The functionality of the strips has not changed. The new-format strips are used in lab and minilab workflows in exactly the same way as the current control strips. No crossover procedure is required, the posted correction factors are applied in exactly the same manner as they are applied currently. The new-format strips perform identically with the current strips when reading through automated densitometers.

Catalog numbers and product packaging have not changed. The new-format strips will be shipped on a stock-turnover basis.
