The experiments described in this paper use the Munsell 100 Hue test to measure color film's ability to order chips the same as humans. The procedure is to photograph the chips in daylight and to scan the dye densities in the processed prints. If the film confuses colors, as colorblind and color anomalous humans do, then the dye density sequence will not be monotonic. Local reversals in dye density imply spectral responses different than humans. A triplet of monotonic dye curves would mimic the color response of people with much better than average color discrimination.
