    Strange new Fuji Film

    Posted on Fuji website 15 December 2005:

    "Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd. (President and CEO: Shigetaka Komori; hereinafter referred to as "Fujifilm") announced that it had developed a silver halide Holographic* Film that can record and reproduce three dimensional (3-D) images using light interference phenomenon. Fujifilm will start selling the product in the US market next month."

    30x40cm, 10 sheets / 299.99USD. That's what I read.

    The only think I fins "strange" about this is that Fuji hasn't been making one before. But with Kodak increasingly leaving silver-based technology, and Slavich being relatively unknown (yet dominating the holography film market), Fuji must have decided there's room for one more player?

    Agfa was a leading manufacturer of holographic film. I guess Fujifilm sees an opportunity here.

    A film specially tailored to the making of holograms. holograms used to be made on plates a lot. Most hologram making these days is purely industrial and the artistic parts are entirely neglected.

    A holographic film is a regular B&W film with a label on it saying it is a holographic film. It makes it look more classy.

    Seriously, if there is any change, it is a change in the spectral sensitizing dye present that is tailored to a specific laser wavelength. Somewhat similar to daylight and tungsten films, holographic films are sensitive to the laser imaging 'color'.

    Can one use these films for creative purposes without investing in serious laser machinery? How do they work? I am very curious.

    They are nothing more than a B&W film. Many of them are very fine grained due to the high energy output of some lasers. They don't need high speed. They are designed for short exposures at high intensity, so sometimes reciprocity is not adjusted for longer camera exposures.

    They have spectral sensitivity matched to a given laser wavelength. This is usually expressed in nanometers with either bandwidth or half band width specified as well.

    Depending on the spectral sensitivity, they may have lower speed to daylight or tungsten than you would expect due to the type of sensitivity given to the film. It would be like having an ortho sensitive film or just a red sensitive film or something like that. One would have to expose it in a spectrosensitometer to predict speed and tone scale in advance, so a camera exposure would be the most useful as it is the easiest to do.
