Metal tanks with black plastic lids. Not Kinderman i'm pretty sure. Stainless steel.
I'm a little worried the lids might not be light tight to UV or I R.
And as this stuff is 12 bucks a roll and I've got to bracket like crazy.
I'm going to take advantage of the fact that I'm using a rangefinder cam rea and
get a filter which only transmits I R;
no visible light.
But right now just a regular red filter.
They say to shoot it at asas 50 but not to meter though the filter.
So i should to use a hand held meter and not meter TTL though the red filter?
I know I'll live but i wonder if that is also really necessary.
I'll know soon enough.
