Fuji 64T Type II: An Unpredictable, Rare Tungsten Film12 52 Share Tweet
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.
