I have a box of (6500 feet) discontinued properly-stored Fuji Reala 16mm 500Daylight film. LOOKING FOR LOCAL TORONTO, CANADA SALES!!!! Will entertain shipping bulk. Was used to shoot ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE and WALK THE LINE... The World’s First Motion Picture Film with Fujifilm’s 4th Color Layer Fuji Reala 500D is the world’s only 500-speed daylight-balanced negative film. Its high speed allows shooting in very low-light daylight and also at f-stops offering greater depth of field. Its speed compensates for the wider apertures required with anamorphic lenses and the effective light loss attendant on “over-cranking” for slow motion effects. This is the world’s only film with Fujifilm’s patented color optimized 4th layer technology. A special advantage is the ability to remove “green spike” from un-corrected fluorescent and sodium lighting mixed with daylight sources.
Hi All, We recently conducted some (rough) tests on some expired (2008) Fuji Reala 500D. It had been in cold storage for 8 years and in a kit cupboard in an unheated studio for 6 months. Had it clip tested with Idaillies (now Kodak) who recommend rating the stock at 125 ASA (2 stops over). Here are the test results (500 ASA stock, rated at 125 ASA with global 2 stop pull): pass = test What we were trying to test: - Latitude of the film when rated at 125 ASA - Performance in daylight dusk situations. - Characteristics of different lenses wide open (or near) - Whether shooting Anamorphic helped negate some of increased graininess from pulling expired sensitive stock. Things to bear in mind: - Only had small tungsten fixtures inside (rebalanced after transfer) - Had to move lights at points rather than opening up - Using old anamorphic glass (Cineovisions) for interior/exterior tests. We're going to load it up in Resolve in January and see what's there in a DPX. But I'm curious as to whether any one has any suggestions for why T 2.8 @ 3.5+ stops looks better than T 1.6 @ 3.0 stops .We're wondering whether it's blooming from the lenses or a higher reflective quality from the skin due to increased proximity to the light? It's not 'blowing out' but it's certainly on the edge of usable. Also - we're wondering whether we're better rating the stock at 125 ASA and pulling it chemically OR rating it 500 and pulling it digitally? And whether each of those processes would have their own merit for different situations (day vs. dusk). Thanks in advance! Josh
