EXPOSURE UNDER VARIOUS LIGHT
CONDITIONS
Daylight
Even when exposed under morning or evening twilight
conditions or when color temperatures are low, no special filter use is needed as color balancing can be done
during printing.
Electronic Flash
• Electronic flash produces light similar to daylight, so
filters are not needed. However, the possibility of undesirable effects on color balance, due to various
factors (differences in equipment, amount of use,
etc.) should be taken into consideration. Test exposures are recommended.
• If shutter speeds slower than 1/60 second are used,
light from non-flash sources, such as room lighting,
may cause color imbalances. Make test exposures.
• The use of a flash meter is advisable, but the following formula can also be used to obtain satisfactory
lens opening.

• Set the film speed at ISO 800. Since the amount of
light reflected onto subjects from surrounding surfaces will differ with the conditions, refer to the flash
unit instructions.

* Fuji Color Compensating Filters (or Wratten CC Filters)
** Exposure correction values include filter exposure factors. These values are added to unfiltered exposure
meter readings. A "+" followed by a number indicates
the required increase in lens opening.
• When the fluorescent lamp characteristics are unknown, to obtain generally acceptable results, use a
30M compensating filter and open the lens one stop
(+1).
NOTE
Different compensation may be required according
to special lamp types and length of use, so test exposures are recommended, whenever possible.
• Shutter speeds of 1/125 second for high-intensity
discharge lamps and 1/30 second or larger, for fluorescent lamps, will avoid AC power-induced changes
in brightness and color being recorded on the film.
Tungsten Lamps
A Fuji Light Balancing Filter LBB-12 (or Wratten filter No.
80A) is recommended along with a 2-stop increase in
lens opening, when using 3200 K tungsten lighting. In
the case of cameras with TTL metering, there is no need
for additional exposure compensation.
Daylight Photoflood/Photo-Reflector Lamps
• Daylight-type photoflood or photo-reflector lamp output may be lower than that indicated by an exposure
meter, so it is advisable to compensate for this by increasing exposure time or the lens opening. Whenever possible, test exposures are recommended.
• Other factors requiring consideration when determining the exposure time, are lamp configuration, use
duration and line voltage, as they may affect lamp
output and color balance.
Fluorescent Lamps & High-Intensity Discharge
Lamps
• For the best results, the following combinations of
color compensating filters are recommended. However, for exacting work, test exposures are advisable.
6.
LIGHTING EQUIPMENT
The condition of umbrellas, reflectors, diffusers and like
devices, could influence photographic light quality. Periodically check lighting equipment for deterioration.
7.
LONG EXPOSURE COMPENSATION
No exposure or color balance compensation is required
for exposures within a 1/4000 to 2 second shutter speed
range. However, for exposures of 4 seconds or longer,
provide the compensations indicated below.

FILM HANDLING
• Expose film before the expiration date indicated on
the film package and process as soon as possible
after exposure.
• When loading and unloading roll film, avoid direct
sunlight. If there is no shade, turning one's back toward the sun will shade the film.
• Camera-loaded film should be exposed and processed immediately.
• X-ray equipment, used to inspect carry-on baggage
at airport terminals, can cause film fogging. Both exposed and unexposed films should be removed for
manual inspection.
• Film fogging may occur near X-ray equipment used
in hospitals, factories, laboratories and other locations. Always keep film way from possible sources of
radiation.
• Before use, allow films to stand at room-temperature
over 1 hour. Opening the package/box while film is
cold may cause harmful condensation.
Processed Film
Exposure to light, high temperature and humid conditions can cause color changes in processed films.
Therefore, place such films in sleeves and store them in
dark, dry, cool and well ventilated locations under the
following conditions.
 ¼ General Storage:

Below 25° (77°F) at 30% to 60% RH

 ¼ Long-term Storage:

Below 10° (50°F) at 30% to 50% RH
NOTE

9.
FILM STORAGE
Unprocessed Film
• Storing exposed or unexposed film under hot and
humid conditions may adversely affect speed, color
balance and physical property changes. Store film
under the following conditions.
 ¼ Ordinary Storage: Protect from heat.

 ¼ Long-term Storage: Below 0°C (32°F)
• Building materials, finishes used on newly manufactured furniture, paints and bonding agents may produce gases which affect photographic film. Do not
store film, lightproof boxes of film, loaded cameras or
film holders near these materials.
12.
As with all color dyes, those used in this film will
discolor or fade with time.
PROCESSING
This film is intended for processing by Fujifilm Processes CN-16, CN-16Q, CN-16FA, CN-16L, CN-16S or
C-41.
11.
JUDGING EXPOSURE RESULTS
SUPERIA X-TRA 800 exposure results can be accurately predicted by using an electronic densitometer
equipped with Status M filters. An 18% gray card, receiving the same illumination as the subject, when read
through the RED filter should render density readings
between 0.70 and 0.90 (for exposures under recommended lighting and with optimal film processing).
