LTR, #532, 1980. Used only on a few things in the film, and except
for camera noise level, you can't tell the difference between it and
the CP.

All 7250, all pushed one stop. (EI 800 tungsten/500 daylight).
Always pushed so we never got into dealing with pushed and unpushed
mags, and could shoot anywhere. Prints up nicely, see a scene late
at night with Lynn and Wendy singing along with the radio (Monster
Love) the only light is the brakelights of the car in front of the
one Joel was shooting in.

Wet-gate optical interneg, conformed in the printer.
