A transmission densitometer utilizing fiber optics for the efflux geometry was designed, constructed, and tested with several black and white films, and one color film. The system was semi-specularly illuminated and used semi-specular collection. The system demonstrates the feasibility of using fiber optic bundles in sensitometric equipment. Scattering properties of silver emulsions, color dye infra-red radiation transmission, and assorted electronic factors which introduce error in densitometric values are observed and discussed.
