Yeti Footprints – A New Low-Speed ISO 6 Film For 35mm Cameras
A British explorer sparked controversy with photographs of what some believe to be Yeti footprints in the Himalayas. The pictures by Eric Shipton prompted dozens of expeditions to search for the Abominable Snowman.
But letting students moderate their own campuses could be problematic, given past troubles with anonymous apps like Yik Yak and Juicy Campus. Fortunately, Yeti has a few tricks up its sleeve.
FPP Yeti 35mm (and 16mm) BW Film
The Film Photography Project is on a mission to “inspire, engage and inform beginning and professional film photographers around the world” (Source: FPP Website). They have a podcast, YouTube channel, store, workshops and a cool collection of films.
The FPP Yeti is an orthochromatic (blue sensitive) estar based negative motion picture film designed for direct contact copying titles and mats in motion picture work. It has a low nominal sensitivity of ISO 6/9deg and should be used in daylight. Avoid yellow filters and indoor/tungsten light. This film can also be developed at home with standard BW chemistry.
This is a great way to shoot some really cool looking black and white movies. Be sure to use a hand held meter or your smart phone light meter app as this film is not very forgiving when it comes to exposure. It also requires careful focusing since this is a super slow film! The results should be stunning!
Yeti is a blue-sensitive B&W film.
Ardent Yeti believers who hoped modern science would prove the creature’s existence may be disappointed to learn that the DNA samples taken from alleged footprints left on Mount Everest actually came from more mundane, but no less rare, animals. The findings, published in a new study, were made using the results of an analysis of footprints that were plaster cast during a 1951 expedition by British mountaineer Eric Shipton.
A blue-sensitive film can only “see” the portion of the spectrum that contains violet and blue light. It does not see green, yellow or red like normal film stocks, nor does it see infrared, ultraviolet, or X-ray radiation.
This specialized film can be used in most 35mm SLR cameras. Its fine grain and creamy tones are great for pictorial use. Be sure to shoot it in daylight (or with a flash/strobe) and avoid using yellow filters or shooting in indoor tungsten light. This will cause “light piping” on the image.

The Film Photography Project has released Yeti, a new low-speed ISO 6 black and white film for 35mm cameras. This orthochromatic, blue sensitive estar based negative motion picture film is perfect for shooting in daylight or with flash/strobe.
Yeti is available for order from the FPP store or through their UK and EU stockist Analogue Wonderland. Each roll contains 24 exposures.
This film is a cool color, orthochromatic (blue sensitive) motion picture film on a polyester base. It was intended for use as a contact print in motion picture post-production. It has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 6/9 deg and should be shot at a temperature between 50 and 100F.
The Yeti or Abominable Snowman is a mythical hairy, ape-like creature purported to inhabit the Himalayan mountain range in Asia. Although anecdotal visual sightings and disputed video recordings of the creature have been reported, no scientific evidence for its existence has ever been presented. Nevertheless, the myth persists.
Yeti is a fine grain B&W film.
The yeti is a sasquatch-like creature said to roam the snowy Himalayan mountains. It has been compared to Bigfoot, the ape-man that has also been claimed to exist in the United States.
Yi, a young teen, is struggling to scrape together money by doing odd jobs in her town. She becomes involved with a man (Eddie Izzard) who is searching for the yeti. The search brings them into contact with a wounded yeti, which Yi cares for.
There are some decent gore effects in this film – a ripped off arm, a squashed head & some good blood splatter. However, most of the action is dull & the CGI yeti looks really embarrassing jumping around the place like it’s on a pogo stick. Still, this is better than some of the other Sci-Fi Channel ‘Creature Features’ & there are one or two entertaining moments. I’d give it a 3.0 out of 5.
