    FUJICHROME 64T - what to expect

    I just bought five rolls of 120 FUJICHROME 64T today, its dated 2008-9, but it has been stored cold, so I'm not to worried about that.

    I'm going to photograph the interior of an old art school, and will be using the 50mm with the Hasselblad 203FE, for this I have no filters (Ø93!)

    What can I expect with fluorescent lamps, a green cast? As far as i remember, the rooms are lit with this, but of course, there might be som mixed lightning (tungsten, windows..)

    Anybody has some experience, and maybe links to pictures, I will appreciate it, thanks!

    Hi,

    Fluorescent lamps come in different colors. You can climb up to the lamps and see if they list a color temperature (and hope they are all of the same variety). If you cannot do that, and barring a color meter and a nice set of color correction filters, your best option would be to shoot some test pix. With the test pix on a light box, use color print viewing filters to determine the needed color correction. You can get your CC filters as square gels to save money. If you do not have a filter holder, you can tape them onto the lens, or better yet, you can cut them into circles to fit a UV filter or a lens hood, or just the inside rim of your lens.
