Re: automatic filmspeed for DP's



     Bob,
     
     I don't know which chart you are using but don't feel too bad, Kodak's 
     chart on their web site does not list KR as a valid prefix either.  
     For what its worth the chart is at:
     
     http://www.kodak.com/aboutKodak/bu/mptvi/tradtion/post/keyid.shtml
     
     If I can find out any thing else I will let you know.

I think your referring to Kodaks Advantix system. My understanding of the 
concept is they are basically using mag stripe technology to record time of 
exposure variables such as shutter speed, aspect, and f stop, and setting 
ISO numbers with a UPC style barcode on the film. Consumers will find it 
idiot proof. Now that I think of it I can recomend this to a few DP's I've 
worked with.;^)
     
I've come across the keycode prefix KR recently. My current tables don't 
list this stock or its properties. Although my Evertz does recognize it. 
Can anyone shed some light on KR?
