PROVIA 100Fgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
My friend is shooting PROVIA 100F. I told him about reciprocity when he shoots more than second. I was surprised when download from FUJIFILM.com technical pdf for this film. I found there than times shorter than 128 seconds dont need any correction! How is that ? Can you explain it to me ?

The same numbers are printed in the Fujifilm Data Guide, so I think you can trust them. From my experience with other Fuji Chromes, I gave some compensation at start, which resulted in overexposure. This film is a blessing for low light shooters!

Most color neg films still exhibit receprocity at 1 second or longer, but as mentioned above, the newer reversal films are different. Trust the specs.

I just started shooting color again using Provia 100F. At first I was skeptical about the reciprocity thing, but I tested it and it all works out. It makes low-light shooting so much less of a hassle.

anyone tried Provia 100F in much longer exposures, i.e., 30 minutes or more? i've been shooting velvia all these years and it gets pretty out-there reciprocity-wise when the exposures get really long.

30 minutes !? Are you shooting in moonlight, Chris? Had renounced after some failures on other films, but it should be possible with the 100F!
