This International Standard specifies a method for determining the resolving power of photographic films, plates
and papers, including black-and-white films, black-and-white printing papers, colour-reversal films, colour-negative
films, and colour-printing papers.
Materials designed for X-ray and other high-energy radiation are excluded, as are photographic materials used in
medical radiography where the exposure source is an intensifying screen in contact with the film (sensitized on one
or two sides). Also excluded are materials having photo-polymer, diazo, etc. light-sensitive layers.
