FEATURES AND USES
4.
FUJICOLOR nexia A 200 is an Advanced Photo System daylight color negative film with an ISO speed rating of 200. It adopts a PEN (polyethylene naphtalate)
base for higher film durability.
This film yields the best results when used in conjunction with FUJICOLOR papers.

Since light intensities for indoor and night scenes

EXPOSURE UNDER VARIOUS LIGHT
CONDITIONS

Even when exposed under morning or evening twilight
conditions or when color temperatures are low, no
special filter use is needed because color balancing
will 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
and test exposure made.
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.

NOTE
¥
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.
Fuji Light Balancing Filter LBB-12 (or Kodak No. 80A) is
recommended along with a 2 lens stop increase, when
using 3200 K tungsten lighting.
6.
LIGHTING EQUIPMENT
The conditions of umbrellas, reflectors, diffusers and
like devices, may influence photographic light quality.
Periodically check lighting equipment for deterioration.
Daylight Photoflood/Photo-Reflector Lamps
Daylight-type photoflood or photo-reflector lamp
output tends to 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.
¥
Different compensation may be required according
to special lamp types and length of use, so test
exposures are recommended, whenever possible.
Tungsten Lamps
Set the film speed at ISO 200. Since the amount
of light reflected onto subjects from surrounding
surfaces will differ with the conditions, refer to the
flash unit instructions.
¥
When the fluorescent lamp characteristics are unknown, to obtain generally acceptable results, use
a 30M compensating filter and open the lens one
stop (+1).
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 promptly after
exposure.
Expose camera-loaded film before the expiration
date and process immediately.
The following cartridge markings indicate the current status of the film. Make sure to verify the
film's status before loading the cartridge.

The leading end (tongue) of the film remains inside the cartridge until the cartridge is loaded into
the camera, at which time it is automatically extracted and the camera readied for the first exposure. Film cartridges should never be incorrectly
handled, such as opening the light-lock door or
changing the status indicator by rotating the cartridge spool. The irreversible processed
indicator, next to the
status
markings,
should never be broken off until the film
has been processed.
NOTE

¥
This film has a magnetic strip on which
exposure data are
recorded for later
use when prints of special quality are ordered and also
for imprinting exposure date on print.
X-ray equipment, used to inspect carry-on baggage at airport terminals, can cause film fogging.
Repeated inspections increase this possibility, so
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 away from possible
sources of radiation.
Contains a magnetic strip. Keep away from magnetic fields.
9.
FILM STORAGE
Unprocessed Film
¥
Storing exposed or unexposed film under high
temperature and humidity conditions will cause
adverse 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 and bonding agents may produce gases which affect photographic film. Do
not store film, lightproof boxes of film, loaded
cameras or film holders under these conditions.
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
Processed negative strips are returned to the customer inside the cartridge. Exposure to light, high
temperature and humidity can cause color changes in
processed films. Therefore, store in dark, dry, cool and
well ventilated locations under the following conditions.
 ¼ General Storage:

25°C (77°F) at 30 to 60% RH

 ¼ Long-term Storage:

10°C (50°F) at 30 to 50% RH
NOTE As with all color dyes, those used in this film will discolor or fade with time.
10.
REORDERING BY INDEX PRINT
Each cartridge has an ID number and this is also imprinted on the back of each print, as well as on the index print. When reordering a print, all that is required
is the frame number on the index print as it contains all
the images made from the roll of negatives. (In the
Advanced Photo System, an index print is included
when prints are ordered with film processing.)
11.
PROCESSING
This film is intended for processing in Fujifilm Process
CN-16X, CN-16Q, CN-16FA, CN-16L, or Kodak Process
C-41.
12.
JUDGING EXPOSURE RESULT
nexia A 200 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
0.79 and 0.98 (for exposures under recommended
lighting and with optimal film processing).
