Koji is a 125-ISO colour-negative ECN-2 cinema film that has been rolled into canisters. The film is Fujifilm Reala Super-F cinema film which was first released in 1999.
Atlanta Film Co’s Bill Manning said the film was cold stored by a cinematographer who purchased it new before the film was discontinued by Fujifilm in 2011.
Manning said the film offers “saturated colours with enhanced grain in the shadows while maintaining slightly saturated skin tones. While this is a tungsten-balanced film, this film offers a pleasing green cast to the highlights offering a signature look this film.”
He added: “While this film is expired, it has been exceptionally cold-stored for just a decade. Shadow detail may experience enhanced grain. Your experience may vary slightly. For this, we have extensively tested this film and were commend photographing at ASA 100 and metering for your shadows.”
The film’s specs are as follows:
- ISO 125 (EI 100 Recommended)
- Enhanced shadow grain
- Rem-jet layer
- No DX code
The film is the latest in Atlanta Film Co’s range of re-rolled ECN-2 cinema films, which was launched in 2022. The roster includes Euphoric 100, which is made from the same Kodak cinema stock used in the hit HBO series ‘Euphoria’.
Koji costs $12.99 (£10.82/€12.20), but Atlanta Film Co said it was limiting orders to a maximum of 10 rolls per customer. Orders will take two to three weeks to ship.
