HARMAN PHOENIX 200
HARMAN Phoenix 200 is a brand-new ISO 200 color negative film with a real ‘analogue’ look and feel!
This is the first ever colour film made entirely from emulsion to cassette at the HARMAN technology factory in Mobberley, a significant and incredibly exciting milestone.
This quirky, experimental film produces high contrast images with strong, visible grain and punchy, vibrant colours. It’s unlike any other colour film.
With a DX coded cassette and a box speed of ISO 200, Phoenix can be rated between ISO 100 and 400 but performs best in good, consistent light. On brighter days or when shooting into the light there is a possibility of halation.
Getting the exposure right will help to get the best results so we suggest metering for the mid tones to retain shadow or highlight detail, (over or under exposure is not Phoenix’s friend)!
Part of the fun of shooting film is expecting the unexpected and this film delivers exactly that from its uniquely coloured negatives to chance encounters with coating anomalies. Hold back your expectations and enjoy the experience!

INTRODUCING HARMAN PHOENIX
Like the mythical Phoenix, this new film represents hope, rebirth, and transformation. It signals the start of a new legacy for HARMAN and the beginning of an exciting new chapter for one of the world’s largest photographic film manufacturers.
As their first colour film, it is not without some quirks, however, it is a signal of intent for the business with sales from this film being used to refine and improve their formulations, coating capabilities and colour technology. The aim is that each new HARMAN colour film will be an improvement on the previous.
