DX coding is the name of a system for coding of 135 photographic film catridges so that the camera can automatically determine the film speed, number of exposures and exposure tolerance (latitude).\nThis Camera Auto Sensing Code is implemented in form of 12 fields on the cartridge surface that are either conductive or non-conductive (painted). Corresponding contacts in the camera sense the information. For sensing of film speed, 6 contacts are sufficient.\nStandard: ANSI/PIMA IT1.14:1997\nSee also: DX number\n
