A friend of mine passed the following inquiry along to me.   I am a DP and I
have worked with 7297 before.  It is Eastman's last non-EXR camera stock.  If
the film is wound onto a daylight spool and you load it in dim light and
don't leave it in the open for too long I think it should be fine.  But I
would call Kodak to be sure: (213) 464-6131.  Good luck!
