[Alt-photo] [Alt-Photo] Wet Plate Collodion Sensivity Filterfor Normal Film

All photographic films are sensitive to UV (and even shorter wavelengths 
will also fog film) and  the shape of published spectral sensitivity 
curves that appear to show a lack of sensitivity was an artefact of the 
way that they were produced - using tungsten illumination which lacked 
UV.  Kodak produced their curves differently and showed high sensitivity 
at 300nm - at which point the curve simply cut off because it wasn't 
measured below that wavelength. Since clear glass is opaque below around 
320nm the range below that is seldom important in photography.
