General Note / OCR

These seven rolls of Kodak Vericolor II Professional, Type S, Color negative film are from actual stock that we were issued to the DASPO (Department of the Army Special Photographic Office) Still Photographers. Note expiration date Feb/82. This film was issued to the Still Photographers at the time they were using the twin lens-reflex cameras. With this type of film, a 2.25 x 2.25 negative was produced. It is also known as 120, or 220 film. A 120 roll would cover (12) exposures. The U.S. Army wanted the 2.25 x 2.25 film for file records. As better film emulsions became available with the 35 mm format, some of the Still Photographers would photograph with 35mm still cameras. Many Army Still Photographers carried both types of cameras and film. Kodak has enhanced the emulsion and offers faster speeds of this film. It is still 'the' film choice, when photographing studio or outside subjects.
