Fuji 64T Type II: An Unpredictable, Rare Tungsten Film

11

The Fuji 64T Type II is a different tungsten alternative to the popular Lomography X Tungsten film!

A while ago I traded 2 films with a friend — one Fuji T64, and another a 64T Type II, both expired. I asked her what’s the difference but she hasn’t tried any of them before. I used the Fuji T64 first and the results, after cross processing it, appeared purplish and pink). It was a good film, but quite hard to find anywhere.

I didn’t use the 64T Type II until recently on my trip to Venice. As the main films I used were Lomography's X Tungsten 64, I thought the 64T Type II would yield similar results. But as it turned out, the colors are totally different.

The overall hue of this film can be quite unpredictable; colours ranging from blue to yellow are quite dominant. As the photos are shot in gloomy skies, results could differ under a sunny condition. The film greatly helped in increasing the saturation with similar effect as the Lomography X-Pro 200 film.

The photos appear to be warmer, and more yellow indoors, and in outdoors they turn out to have cooler, bluer shades.

Either way, if you manage to come across this rare film, do give it a try! As an alternative, so far from what I observed from my photos from this roll, it would be the Lomography X-Pro 200 film.

    surely the 64T II has a unique colour...
    I still have 1 roll in my freeze box. And the 64T II is a must have film :)

    You got really great results! Love the colors as well.

    I guess what happened here is that you used a film made for taking pictures iluminated by halogen lamps (or tungsten lamps) outdoors, meaning, using sunlight as lightining source and not halogen.
    This film has the cooler curves high to neutralize the yellow from the halogen lamps. I'm not sure I'm being very clear! (English problems right now :)
    Make a test, will not look the same, but in digital cameras you can change the white balance to tungsten, then take outside pics, that's what I'm talking about :)

    Again, congrats, I loved the photos!

    What is. The best ISO to shoot this at? Is it 64, like the film is rated for?

    @sarah-addison-dobard I shoot it at ISO100 because my camera can't go any lower than that. I guess if you shoot it at 64 it would look great too!

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
