DX Coded Film

Fuji Natura Classica only accept DX Coded film. What is DX Coded? I don't really know before this, because LC-A+ and Horizon Perfekt don't care about it. Finally I know what is DX coded film.

This is how you read the code. You can see the silver and black at the film cartridge. So, it tells the camera what ISO is it, and how many frames does the film has.

Fuji Natura Classica only switch on NP mode (natural photo) for ISO 800 and 1600. So, maybe can use ISO 400 film, and change the black area on the film cartridge, to cheat the camera that it is ISO1600 film. Then tell the lab to push the film for 2 stops. I think it is possible.

Why do so? Because ISO1600 is so expensive!!! which will cost RM35 per roll. I will test about it.
