New Fuji Variable ISO (100-1000) All Weather Film

Wed Apr 18, 2001 2:48 am

Found this on an e-group. I wonder would anybody like to share some more info about it
------------------------------------------------------
Fuji has a new "all weather" film. It
is called Fuji MS 100-1000, and it has a flexible ASA setting. According to
your own choise you can expose the film at either 100, 200, 400, 800 or 1000
ASA.

This flexible setting will allow you to shoot a picture under bad lighting
conditions, thus giving you the chance to capture a unique opportunity which
you would have missed with regular film. Although the Fuji MS 100-1000
probably won't be your standard film for every occasion, it may be usefull
to keep a few in your fotocase for unexpected events.

Just thought I'd share that

I have seen it too at FUJI'S site. It is a slide film isn't it?

Here it is:




Fujichrome MS 100/1000 Professional (RMS)
A multi-speed daylight-type color reversal film that’s versatile enough for sports, fashion, editorial, or any type of photography in variable or low light.

FEATURES
Basic Speed of ISO 100
Push-Processing Capability to EI 1000
New DDG (Distinctively Developing Grain) Technology
Dramatically raises effective film speed as development time increases
Results in consistent, outstanding image quality
MFIL (Multi-Functional Intermediate Layer) Technology
Ensures outstanding color balance, clarity, and tonality
Standard E-6 Processing
Available in Roll Formats


I don't think it is new. I have seen it before some months ago on the internet.

Why brings Fuji a new film on the market -the Provia 100F is a film which can already be pushed up to 1000. ???

This is not a "new" film, although it seems it was just discovered by some. The film works good at 400, OK at 200, and marginal at 800. There really is no comparison to Provia. If you need more speed, try Provia 400. It is far superior to MS at higher speeds.

Fuji MS 100-1000 has been available for a few years already. Here's a shot taken after sunset at 400 speed:

Performance seems quite good at that speed. But as FastGlass said, it pales in comparison with the new Provia 400F.

i've used it before, i shot it at 200, just to test quality... it was pretty good, actually very good in my opinion, but not worth the money, so its the only roll i've used...

Its very late here, i have like 3 pics on A.net from this film, i'll find em and post tommorow...
