FEATURES AND USES
FUJICOLOR PRO 160 S PROFESSIONAL is an ISO film
speed 160 daylight-type color negative film designed
for professional use, featuring more highly optimized
skin tone reproduction and neutral gray balance,
especially important for portrait photography. Through
its use of Fourth Color Layer technology, the newest
emulsion technologies and new coupler technology,
this film is able to deliver better grain quality and
smoother skin tone reproduction than current films.
Moreover, thanks to its well-controlled gray balance, it
provides a wider exposure latitude that makes it more
suitable for digital scanners. The further addition of
single-channel printing results in uniform printing
efficiency with other films in the FUJICOLOR PRO series.

Daylight Photoflood/Photo-Reflector Lamps
EXPOSURE FOR VARIOUS LIGHT
CONDITIONS
• Daylight-type photoflood or photo-reflector lamp
output may be lower than that indicated by the
exposure meter. It is recommended to compensate
for the difference by increasing the exposure time
(by lowering the shutter speed) or by increasing the
lens opening. Whenever possible, test exposures are
recommended.
• Other factors that should be considered when determining the exposure settings are lamp configuration,
length of time used and line voltage, as they may
affect lamp output and color balance.
Daylight
Under usual daylight conditions, color balancing filters
are not necessary. Under the following exposure conditions, however, the indicated filters are recommended.
Subject Conditions
Filter
Fair weather / open shade and shaded
landscapes
Wratten filter
No. 2C (SC-39*)
Bright distant scenes, snow landscapes,
seaside scenes, aerial scenes and open
landscapes
Wratten filter
No. 1A (SC-40M*)
Fluorescent Lamps
* Fuji Sharp-cut Filter (Ultraviolet)
When photographing under fluorescent lamps, it is
recommended that a shutter speed range of 1/30 to 1
second be used to prevent influence from lamp flicker.
For excessively high or low color temperatures, use of
the color balancing filters is recommended.
Tungsten Lamps
NOTE :When artificial illumination is being used as the main or
auxiliary light source either indoors or outdoors under
conditions in which sunlight is present, the use of either
an electronic flash or blue flash bulbs is recommended.
When using 3200K tungsten lighting, use a Wratten
filter No. 80A (Fuji LBB-12* filter) and increase the lens
opening by +1 2/3 stops. In the case of cameras with
TTL metering, there is no need for additional exposure
compensation.
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 (the type of flash used and amount of time
used, 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.

LONG EXPOSURE COMPENSATION
For exposures of 4 seconds or more, the exposure compensation indicated in the table below is required. No
color balance compensation is required for exposures
within a shutter speed range of 1/4000 to 2 seconds.

The + sign indicates an increase in the lens opening.
When using an auto flash unit, the ISO film speed
setting should be set to 160. Since the amount of light
on the subject may vary according to amount of light
reflected from surrounding surfaces and other factors,
follow the instructions provided with the flash unit.
7.
EXPOSURE PRECAUTIONS
When using an accessory such as a reflector umbrella,
reflector or diffuser to control light intensity or diffuse
the light, make sure that no change has occurred in
the color or composition of the accessory’s materials
or reflective surface, and that the color of the light has
not been altered by the material.
Flash Bulbs
With blue flash bulb exposures, compensating filters
are unnecessary. With clear flash bulbs, however, use
a Wratten filter No. 80C (Fuji LBB-8* filter) and increase
the lens opening by +1 stop. However, since the light
quality may vary with the bulb type and the manufacturer and the amount of light may vary with the lighting
equipment and diffusion technique, test exposures
should be made with the equipment being used.
8. UNPROCESSED FILM HANDLING/STORAGE
HANDLING
• Expose film before the expiration date indicated on
the film package and process as soon as possible
after exposure.
* Fuji Light Balancing Filter
–2–
FUJICOLOR PRO 160 S PROFESSIONAL • FUJIFILM PRODUCT INFORMATION BULLETIN
• When removing film stored at low temperatures (in a
refrigerator or freezer, etc.), allow it to reach room
temperature before opening it. Opening film while it
is still cold may cause condensation to form on the
film surface, causing color changes or the emulsion
to become more susceptible to scratches.
• Roll film should be loaded and unloaded quickly and
away from direct sunlight.
• Film loaded in cameras should be exposed and
processed promptly.
• Sheet film must be handled in total darkness and with
care so as not to touch the emulsion surface.
• X-rays inspection machines used to inspect checkedin baggage at airports can cause fogging of film.
Put both exposed and unexposed film into carry-on
baggage (preferably in a transparent plastic bag or
a net bag that allows the film to be seen). Because of
the increasing number of airports using strong X-ray
machines for carry-on baggage, it is recommended
that you remove film from your carry-on baggage and
request a visual (manual) inspection of your film.
• Film fogging may occur near X-ray equipment used
in hospitals, factories, laboratories and other places
where radiation is used. Always keep film away from
sources of radiation.

to manage processing performance.
11. PROCESSED FILM HANDLING AND STORAGE
Since the purpose of film is to provide a long-term
record of memorable events, as much effort as possible
has been made to use materials that exhibit the least
amount of change over time, but the effects of light,
heat, atmospheric oxygen, contaminant gases, humidity
and mold cannot be completely avoided. It is possible,
however, to minimize change in the photographic
image or base material by maintaining appropriate
storage conditions, such as those used by museums
and art galleries. Temperature and humidity control is
the most important key to minimizing the change that
occurs in film. Films stored in the dark under the
following conditions may be expected to show almost
no change over time.

STORAGE
(1) Color negative film should be inserted into sleeves
for storage. Furthermore, it is recommended that
film, as well as prints, be placed into non-airtight*
containers made of paper, plastic**, or metal designed
for the storage of photographs.
Storing exposed or unexposed film under hot and
humid conditions may adversely affect the speed, color
balance and physical properties of the film. Although it
is best to store film at a low temperature, for practical
purposes, film should be stored as follows:
* To prevent film base (especially TAC base) decomposition, it is essential that the container or case be allowed to
air out during one dry day each year.
** Polyester, polystyrene, polyethylene, polypropylene, etc.
Store at a place (cool and dark)

Storage
(2) Processed film should be stored at a place as far
away as possible from high temperatures, direct
sunlight and other strong light. The following conditions are not desirable for the storage of film
and should be avoided in the case of long-term
storage:
• New building materials, newly manufactured furniture, paints and bonding agents may produce gases
which could affect photographic film. Do not store
film, lightproof boxes containing film or cameras or
film holders loaded with film near these materials.
• Film should be sealed in plastic bags* prior to cold
storage When taken out of cold storage, film should
be allowed to reach room temperature before opening by letting it stand over 3 hours (for refrigerated
film) or over 6 hours (for frozen film).

15-1 Super Nano-Structured ∑ Grain Technology
15-3 Super Efficient Coupler Technology
Super Nano-Structured ∑ Grain Technology provides
nano-scale control over silver halide crystals, enhancing
the efficiency at which photoelectrons are gathered into
the sensitivity nuclei during exposure. The result is finer
grain and higher speeds. Through this technology,
FUJICOLOR PRO 160 S PROFESSIONAL is able to
boast better grain quality, higher sharpness and more
smoothly continuous tones than the current NPS, even
with the same film speed.
Through the incorporation of new, high-color-generation yellow couplers, this film has realized thinner layers and higher sharpness.
15-4 Super Efficient Light Control Technology
The cutting of unnecessary reflected light by a new
light-absorbing agent has enabled this film to enjoy
suppressed color blurring and increased sharpness.
15-2 Super Efficient DIR Coupler Technology
Super Efficient DIR Coupler Technology has enabled
the free control of the interlayer effect, resulting in even
better color reproduction than that of the current film,
as well as an edge-effect-enhanced sharpness.
