General Note / OCR

One - 100 foot roll (camera spool), of Eastman Ektachrome Commercial Film Type 7255 is balanced for 3200 kelvin (k). It was used for indoor filming under photo flood lamps, balanced for the 3200k. It is also from the actual stock that we were issued. When I first arrived to DASPO (Department of Army Special Photographic Office) Pacific, we were using the Bell & Howell (B&H), 35 mm Motion Picture Camera (EYEMO). 100 foot rolls of 35mm film were used in these cameras. Also, we used the B&H 16mm Motion Picture Cameras. Within a year, we received more updated 16mm Motion Picture Cameras (Arriflex BL & 16S), which were much lighter, and with better lenses.
