    Reciprocity characteristics of Fuji 50D

    Does someone still have in his/her files the reciprocity and CC correction table s for the discontinued Fuji RFP 50D film? While Kodak lists these characteristic s even for older films, I cannot find what I need on the Fuji's site. When this film was discontinued I put these data sheets in such a safe place that I cannot find them anymore. Or was it my wife? )) Many thanks for your help.

    Reciprocity characteristics of Fuji 50D

    I've checked for my older Fuji DataGuide, but have nothing around here from before 1996. I'll continue to look in a few other places and post again if anything turns up.

    In the meantime Emil, if you have enough film, I suggest you use a few sheets to do some tests. RFP did not keep well, even at 0 degrees F, always tending to go magenta as little as one year past its expiration date. Long exposures give green results. If you have lived a good clean life, the work you intend will require exposures exactly long enough for the magenta and green to balance perfectly!

    Reciprocity characteristics of Fuji 50D

    Sorry to have taken so long. I use a storage cabinet at work to keep old documentation. For the last few months I've been working on a project at a location remote from my regular office, and only this morning was able to access my files to do your research.

    From a 1991 RFP Technical Data sheet:

    1/400 - 1 sec: no correction

    4 seconds: 5M, +1/3 stop*

    8 seconds: 7.5M +1/2 stop*

    16 seconds: 10M +2/3 stop*

    32 seconds: 12.5M +1 stop*

    64 seconds: Not Recommended

    *includes filter factor

    Performing a test would still be wise since RFP does so poorly (becoming magenta) in long term storage.
