1. FEATURES AND USES
Size
FUJI INSTANT BLACK & WHITE FILM FP-3000B SUPER
SPEEDY is a peel-apart panchromatic material designed for camera back incorporated photographic
equipment and cameras which accept instant film
packs yielding 85 x 108 mm pictures. Besides being
suited for identification, portraiture and other general
imaging applications, this film is also appropriate to numerous industrial and business utilizations such as
photomicrography, ultrasonography and oscillography
in the rapid provision of very high quality photographs.
For appropriate photographic applications, reference
should be made to camera or imaging equipment instruction manuals.

3. PRECAUTIONS DURING USE
Camera Loading Precautions
• Before loading the camera, check the development
roller and clean it if dirty.
• Hold the film pack by the edges, as indicated. Do not
apply any pressure to the black covering paper or the
"Do not press here" mark on the back.
• Always load the camera in subdued light avoiding direct sunlight.
• Hold the film pack with the film side parallel to and
facing the exposure plane and then lower the non-tab
end first into the camera back followed by the tab
end.
• After loading, make sure that the white tab is not
folded between the film pack and camera back, then
close and lock the rear cover.
• Pull out the black covering paper bringing with it the
first white tab, and the camera is ready to use.
• For further exposure and handling precautions, refer
to the instructions supplied with the particular camera.
This film incorporates Fujifilm's own Sigma Crystal emulsion and a new physical development accelerator for
the shortened development times, and fine-grain and
smooth image quality enhancements.

Development Times and Temperatures
• This film is designed for use at temperatures between 15°C and 35°C (59°F and 95°F), but yields best
results at 25°C (77°F).
• The table below provides the development times for
this film according to encountered temperatures.
For best results, be sure to observe the following development times and temperatures after pulling out
the film sheet. Do not attempt to separate the negative and positive sheets before the temperature
specified times indicated below have elapsed.
4. FILM HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
CAUTION
• Each film sheet contains a caustic (highly alkaline)
processing fluid. Never cut, tear or punch holes in
unused films. Avoid skin contact with this processing fluid.
• Peeled-apart negative sheets should be folded inward upon themselves when discarded. When
discarding negative sheets and other waste materials, be sure to avoid contact with children, pet
animals, paper, clothes, furniture and other important objects or materials.
• Should you get some of this processing fluid on
your skin, flush it off immediately with lots of water.
If any of the fluid gets into your mouth or eyes,
flush the affected area immediately with lots of
water, then see your doctor.

• There is no need for exposure compensation with
general subjects when exposure takes place within a
15°C to 35°C temperature range.
• If development times are shorter than specified or
longer than 8 minutes, undesired photos may result.
• Photographic properties may change with time. Be
sure to use the film before the expiration date on the
package.
• Avoid opening a film pack or loading a camera under
direct sunlight. After opening the film, do not leave it
in a bright place. Load it into the camera as quickly
as possible.
• When handling a film pack, do not put pressure on
the light-shielding cover sheet or within the slots on
the rear of the pack. This may cause a film-ejection
failure or unevenness in the photo.
• Unprocessed film should be kept away from X-rays
used to inspect checked-in baggage, etc. at airport
terminals. Strong X-rays can cause fogging of
unprocessed film. It is recommended such film be
placed in your carry-on baggage whenever possible.
(Consult with airport personnel for details.)
• Film fogging may occur in hospitals, factories, laboratories and other locations using X-rays. Keep films
away from radiation sources.
Development Procedures
• Hold the white tab and pull it straight out bringing the
black tab through the film exit.
• Hold the center portion of the black tab, and pull it out
at an even speed. Be sure to pull the black tab in a
direction within the film plane. If pulled in a slanting
direction, the white tab may break inside the film
pack. When pulling, do not bend, fold or press the
film and do not stop pulling before it is entirely
removed from the camera, or undesired results, such
as processing fluid leakage, incomplete processing
fluid spread or image unevenness may occur.
• When film has been removed from the camera, start
development time measurement immediately. Do not
rub, fold or separate developing films or undesired
spots may appear on finished photos.
• After the specified development time has lapsed,
separate the negative and positive sheets at a fixed
but rapid speed, starting with the black tab end.
• The photo will be moist immediately upon separation.
Moist photos should not be placed on other photos
or paper lest they stick. When immediate use is
essential, dry photos using a dryer.
• If the white tab does not protrude from the camera,
open the camera rear cover in subdued light, pass
the white tab through the white tab exit and close rear
cover. The remaining films can be used as they are if
correctly set.
• If the black tab does not come out when the white tab
has been completely pulled out, open the camera rear
cover in subdued light and pull the film out by the
black tab. (The film that is removed in this manner cannot be used again, but the remainder can be used.) If
the development roller and film exit are found to be
dirty, clean them before closing the rear cover.
5. FILM STORAGE
• The photographic and physical properties of film are
adversely affected by high temperature and humidity,
as well as by formalin vapor and other harmful gases.
To minimize these adverse effects, film should be
stored in a dry, well-ventilated place.
• For long-term storage, keep film in a refrigerator [at a
temperature below 10°C (50°F)]. Place opened film
packs into polyethylene or vinyl bags before refrigerating them.
• After removing film from a refrigerator, you should wait
(at least 12 hours) for it to reach room temperature before opening it. If you open the film while it is still cold, it
may be adversely affected by condensation.

• Film is subjected to quality changes in the presence
of noxious gases and other similar chemicals. Therefore, do not break open the silver colored internal
wrapper until just before use.
• Photographic film retains sensitivities which are responsive to X-rays. Therefore, films should not be
stored close to containers enclosing radioisotopes or
related chemicals or in proximity to X-ray sources. If
so stored, photos will become especially white or
white obstructions will be generated on the films and
prints.
• After loading film into a camera, you should expose it
as soon as possible.
• Cameras loaded with film should be stored with as
little exposure as possible to harmful gases, high
temperatures, and high humidity. New building
materials (such as coated plywood) and newlymanufactured furniture, paints and bonding agents
are a possible source of formalin vapor. Do not store
loaded cameras or film within their vicinity.
• Certain adhesives may cause color dyes to discolor
or fade when used to mount photos. Liquid glues
may permeate the mounting sheet, causing mounting sheets to adhere to each other when stacked. It is
recommended that glue sticks be used instead.
When using liquid glues, it is recommended that only
a light coating of glue be applied and that the glue be
confirmed dry before storage.
• When keeping photos on file, avoid direct image-toimage contact, especially with photos that are still
moist. Such contact may cause irreparable damage.
When storing photos, completely dry them and exercise care so that they are not placed one on top of
the other or front to front.
7. SPECTRAL SENSITIVITY CURVES
6. PHOTO STORAGE
• The quality of finished photos will change during storage if exposed to strong light, high temperatures,
and high humidity. Photos are also affected by exposure to certain gases. For optimum preservation during long-term storage, keep photos in a dark, dry and
well-ventilated location away from harmful gases.
• As with all sensitive materials, images produced on
this film are subject to discoloration or fading with
time. The Fuji Photo Film Co. disclaims any responsibility for any discoloration or fading that may occur
with this film.
