Remember... negative camera film for prints, has an orange mask. I believe
there is a special negative duplicating film, for duping masked negatives,
and giving you a true positive transparency, sans mask. I don't know the
film number. I believe it's Kodak film. Probably a motion picture release
film. Someone else will have to add to this.


ps... I found this on the Kodak site
