FUJICHROME PROVIA 100F Professional [RDPIII]
2. SPEEDS
1. FEATURES AND USES
FUJICHROME PROVIA 100F Professional [RDP III] is an
ultra-high-quality, daylight-type ISO 100-color reversal
film. With the finest grain (an RMS granularity value of 8)
among ISO 100 color reversal films and an extremely
high sharpness, it captures details with unprecedented
clarity, while providing rich gradation, vivid and faithful
color reproduction, and well-controlled gradation balance. These characteristics make it an ideal choice for a
wide range of subject matter, from product and outdoor
photography to fashion work and portraiture.
Features
• Super-fine Grain
•
• Finely detailed image formation for large-size enlargements and other work requiring high-magnification as a
result of the finest grain
among ISO 100 color reversal film.
• Improved
Reciprocity
Characteristics
• Increased resistance to loss
in film speed and color balance during long exposures,
as well as consistently accurate multiple-exposure performance.
• Excellent Push-/
Pull-processing
• Outstanding tolerance to exposure and density compensation during processing,
within –1/2 stop to +2 stops,
resulting in minimal variations color balance and gradation.

necessary, but the following exposure conditions may
require the indicated filters.

Fluorescent Lamps
• The use of the following combinations of color compensating filters is advisable when photographing

Tungsten Lamps
• A Wratten Filter No.80A (or Fuji Light Balancing Filter LBB-12) is recommended along with a 1 2/3 lens
stop increase, when using 3200K tungsten lighting.
• 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).
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.
• The use of a flash meter is advisable, but the following formula can also be used to obtain satisfactory
lens opening.
Mixed Light Lamps
Under mixed light conditions, derive the basic filter configuration to 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.

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.
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 flash
unit instructions.
5. LONG AND MULTIPLE EXPOSURE
COMPENSATION
No exposure correction or color balance compensation
is required for exposures within a 1/4000 to 128 seconds
shutter speed range. However, for exposures of 128

Multiple Exposures
No exposure correction or color balance compensation
is required for up to eight consecutive multiple exposures using an electronic flash.
Processed Film
• Exposure to light, high temperature and humidity
can cause color changes in processed films.
Therefore, place such films in mounts or sleeves
and store in dark, dry, cool and well ventilated locations under the following conditions.
 ¼Medium-term Storage:
 Below 25°C (77°F) at 30 to 60% RH

 ¼Long-term Storage:
 Below 10°C (50°F) at 30 to 50% RH
6. 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 make, age of equipment and line voltage. Reflectors and diffusers can also influence light intensity
and color temperature.
NOTE
As with all color dyes, those used in this film will discolor
or fade with time.
7. FILM HANDLING
•
•
•
•
•
Building material, 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 under these conditions.
Before use, allow films to stand at room temperature: over 3 hours for refrigerated film, and over 6
hours for frozen film. Long rolls such as 100 feet
(30.5m) will require additional time. Opening the
package/box while film is cold may cause harmful
condensation.
9. PROCESSING
Expose film before the expiration date indicated on
the film package and process promptly 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.
Handle sheet film in total darkness and do not touch
emulsion surfaces. (The use of a safelight will cause
fogging.)
X-ray equipment, used to inspect carry-on baggage
at airport terminals can cause film fogging, so both
exposed and unexposed films should be removed
for manual inspection.
Film fogging may occur near X-ray equipment in
hospitals, factories, laboratories and other locations. Always keep film away from possible sources
of radiation.
This film is designed for processing in Kodak Process
E-6, Fujifilm Process CR-56, or Fuji Hunt Process C6R,
etc.
10. VIEWING LIGHT SOURCES
Use a standard viewer. Visual responses will differ with
light source quality and brightness. Therefore, employ a
viewer which meets the ISO/ANSI standard.
• The ISO standard (ISO/DP3664-2) specifies an illuminated viewer surface with a color temperature derived from a CIE illuminant D50 (D:Daylight) with a reciprocal color temperature of 5000K, an average
brightness of 1400cd/m2}300cd/m2, a brightness
uniformity of more than 75%, a light diffusion level of
more than 90% and an average color rendition assessment value of more than Ra90. Transparency
viewers should meet these standards.
8. 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.
 ¼Short-to-medium term Storage:
 Below 15°C (59°F) .................. (Refrigerator)

 ¼Long-term Storage:
 Below 0°C (32°F) ........................... (Freezer)
11. PRINTS AND DUPLICATES
Processed transparencies can be made into prints on
FUJICHROME papers or FUJICOLOR INTERNEGATIVE
FILM IT-N, thus greatly increasing RDP III’s versatility.
High-quality duplicates can be made on FUJICHROME
DUPLICATING FILM CDU TYPE II (CDU II).
