    Anyone familiar with this phenomenon? In the highlights of the lamps the film turns into deep blue...

    I'm using it in a pinhole camera and many of the pictures have a distinctly blue cast to them.

    Looks like something vaguely resembling the Sabatier effect to me…

    I've never had an issue like that. Which camera are you using?

    I have seen that with Instax films, but never with FP-100C. My guess is that it is solarization, caused by the (assumed) long exposure to the bright lights.

    It was shot with a Mamiya Universal, 100mm 2.8 lens. Exposure of 1 second. Thank you for the response, I think I will try to avoid these cirumstances in the future.

    I kind of like it.

    I wants universal, someday perhaps...

    Nevertheless I would not expect solarisation to happen with modern materials!
    (Lomography fun-films aside.)

    Thats true.

    And now it seems to be a curse, two shots later

    At least the effect is not as annoying as in that candelabra.

    Funny, some of the early run of the new BMC camera (Black Magic Cinema) had that effect with hot spots. Digital version I suppose.
