Some sheet films came in "thin" and "thick" base, maybe still do...but doesn't it seem likely that 35mm films would come in only a very narrow range of thickness, because almost all of them will be sent through automated developing and printing machines, so a variation of thickness great enough to cause focusing problems would be likely to infuriate the processing people, and would be noted by the photo magazines, and would kill or seriously maim sales??? on 05/14/2002 11:52 PM, gary at firstname.lastname@example.org wrote: > Please let me know when you will be doing your Vegas act. > > I was hoping another geek would do this, but alas, let's check the net and > find the thickness of various slide films in 135-36: > velvia rdp: 127um > provia 100F rdpiii : 127um > provia 400R rhpiii : 127um > kodak e100s: 130um > kodak e100vs: 130um > > Well, looks like Polaroid was inhaling since the base thickness is virtually > equal.
