COLOR REVERSAL FILMS
FUJICHROME Sensia 100 [RA]
1.
FEATURES AND USES
FUJICHROME Sensia 100 [RA] is an ISO 100 high-image-quality daylight color reversal film.
Features of this film include beautiful skin tones, natural
and true-to-life color reproduction, and smooth textural
depiction. Its high color-temperature tolerance during
exposure makes it easily and widely applicable for slide
production not only for snapshots, scenery, and other
general photography, but also for medicine-, science-,
and industry-related photography.
Sensia 100 is ideally suitable for slide projection and for
making big enlargements, as well as for printing on
FUJICHROME paper and making high-quality duplicates using duplicating film.

NOTES • The foregoing settings are for 2 hours after sunrise
and 2 hours before sunset.
• Provide a lens opening 1/2-stop smaller during the
summer and 1/2-stop larger during the winter (except for snow scenes).
• Excessively bright (or dark) or backlighted subjects
may require plus (or minus) 1-stop lens opening adjustments.
* CR-56 (Fujifilm) is equivalent to E-6 processing.

A "+" followed by a number indicates the required
increase in lens opening.
Electronic Flash
• Electronic flash produces light similar to daylight, so
filters are not normally 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.
• The use of a flash meter is advisable, but the following formula can also be used to obtain a satisfactory
lens opening.

• Set the film speed at ISO 100. Since the amount of
light reflected onto the subject from surrounding surfaces will differ with the conditions, refer to the flash
unit instructions.

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
• The use of the following combinations of color compensating filters is advisable when photographing
under fluorescent lighting.
• For exacting work, however, test exposures are recommended because lamp brand and age may affect
light output and color balance.

* Wratten Color Compensating Filters (or Fuji CC Filters) are
recommended.
** Exposure correction values include filter exposure factors.
These values are added to normal exposure meter readings.
A "+" followed by a number indicates the required increase in
lens opening.
NOTES • Use a shutter speed slower than 1/30 second.
• For shutter speeds of 64 seconds or more, exposure adjustments will be necessary to compensate
for reciprocity-related failure.
Tungsten Lamps
• A Wratten Filter No.80A (or Fuji Light Balancing Filter
LBB-12) is required when using 3200K tungsten
lighting. A 1 2/3-stop larger lens opening is also
required.
• If household tungsten lighting (room lamps. etc.)
constitutes the main source of illumination, in addition to the above filter a Wratten filter No. 82A (or Fuji
Light Balancing Filter LBB-2) is required, plus an aperture increase of 1/3 stop (total 2 stops).
Mixed Light Sources
Under mixed light conditions, the basic filter configuration should suit the main light source. In the case of
cameras with TTL metering, there is no need for additional exposure compensation for any CC filter(s) used.

EXPOSURE PRECAUTIONS
With artificial light, such as electronic flash, photoflood,
fluorescent, tungsten, mercury vapor, etc., the lamp
output and color temperature may be affected by such
factors as brand, age of equipment and line voltage.
Reflectors and diffusers can also influence light intensity
and color temperature.

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, shield the film from
the sun with your body.
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. As checked-in baggage is also X-rayed, film should be part of your
carry-on baggage whenever possible.
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.

FILM STORAGE
Unprocessed Film
• Storing exposed or unexposed film under hot and
humid conditions may adversely affect the speed,
color balance and physical properties of the film.
Store film under the following conditions.
 O Short-to-medium-term storage :

Below 15°C (59°F) ........ (Refrigerator)
 O Long-term storage :

Below 0°C (32°F) .......... (Freezer)

11.
•
Building materials, finishes used on newly manufactured furniture, paints and bonding agents may
produce gases which could affect photographic
film. Do not store film, lightproof boxes of film,
loaded cameras or film holders near these materials.
Before use, films taken from cold storage should be
allowed to stand at room-temperature for over 3
hours for refrigerated film, and over 6 hours for frozen film.
•
Processed Film
Exposure to light, high temperature and humid conditions can cause color changes in processed films.
Therefore, place such films in mounts or sleeves and
store them in a dark, dry, cool and well ventilated location under the following conditions.
 O Medium-term storage:

Below 25°C (77°F) at 30% to 60% RH
 O Long-term storage :

Below 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.
PROCESSING
This film is designed for processing by Kodak E-6,
Fujifilm CR-56, or equivalent chemicals.

LIGHT SOURCES FOR VIEWING
Take care to use a standard viewer, as visual responses
differ with light source quality and brightness.
