Fujichrome RMS 120 100/1000 ISO: User-Review


Are you a big fan of that crazy color shift you get from dunking FujiChrome films in C-41 juice? I am, and when I got my hands on 3 rolls of this rare emulsion, I could not resist trying a little x-pro action!

FujiChrome MS 100/1000 Professional [RMS] as it is coded on the wrapper, is a slide film that was made for push processing. You can shoot it as 100 ISO, or any speed up to 1000 ISO and then push process it. Pushing is what it was made to do. This gave many photographers some flexibility to capture images in many lighting conditions if they had some of this film ready to rock.

This rare film is no longer made, but if you keep your eyes open, sometimes you can score some expired rolls. This particular roll was expired in 2002, but it was kept cold stored and came from a pro photographer’s stash— so I was pretty confident I could get something interesting with this stuff. I loaded up my trusty Mu-Dan MD-1 TLR with this 120 film and went out to make some moody color shift magic.

Rather than push this stuff, I wanted to see what it would do with some crazy cross processing. So, I decided to shoot this as if it were 100 ISO, and I set my aperture and shutter speed accordingly. And the result is one of my favorites so far! I got the typical Fuji green-blue shift, but with a heavy emphasis on green, depending on the lighting conditions. And in some of the photos, the reds and oranges just pop out, in some cases looking like they are glowing under a UV light! The film performed very well for being so far out of date.

So what do you think, should I X-Pro the other two rolls?

I think so!

    I shot a 120 roll of this recently and xpro'ed it. On the underexposed shots I got deep limey greens, on the well exposed shots I got a slight green shift, and on over exposed shots I got an almost purply shift! And as a lover of tungsten film this pleased me immensly! I developed the film at 38degrees for 6 mins.

    hopefully should be able to upload them all this week. Love this film though, very versatile.
