Spectra Film and Video announces the release of Fuji Velvia 50 Daylight reversal in both super 8, and, for the first time ever, in 16mm. Tests have shown grain and sharpness to be similar to Kodachrome 40 film (and far superior to Ektachrome 64T). Color and latitude, however, are better than K-40, offering more detail in the shadows and saturation in every hue pushed to the extreme!

The film comes packaged with excellent Spectra E-6 processing for only $35.00 per 50? super 8 cartridge, $95.00 for 16mm 100? daylight spools, and $350.00 for 400? of 16mm on a core. 35mm may also be special ordered. All film will be produced from quality, factory fresh product direct from the Fuji plant to assure consistent quality and a great looking picture every time. This new film offering can be considered a real breakthrough to filmmakers that have wanted alternatives to 64T or 100D Ektachrome reversal. Doug Thomas, president of Spectra comments, ?We are all very excited at the prospect of filmmakers shooting with a new, gorgeous looking film for their projects. Velvia was intended as a super-fine grain still film with great efforts put into the development and manufacturing?.

As with Kodachrome and Ektachrome, Velvia has limited exposure tolerances. To extract the full potential from the film it is extremely important to expose it correctly. Other tricks have been tested and used at Spectra?s E-6 lab for better exposure flexibility. This includes a 2 stop over exposure and a 2-stop pull in the lab. This tends to extract detail in the shadows and decrease the appearance of grain with properties that have some similarities to a low ASA color negative. The biggest benefit is greater flexibility during the video transfer process.
