    Slide film for product shot in studio?

    What slide film would you use to shoot a product in a studio under 3200K photo spots?

    The subject is one of my violins and I typically shoot them against a black background but am open to white as well.

    I have tried Ektar100 print film and it always has an orangie cast to it...

    Tungsten 64 if you can still find some.

    If you can't obtain 64T you can use daylight balanced colour film and an 80A colour correction filter to bring the colour temperature to 3200 K to match the lighting, but don't forget to allow for the filter factor if you aren't using TTL metering.

    Would Fuji T64 be a good portrait film under the same circumstances?

    Absolutely, great portrait film or anything film under 3200°K light.

    RIP tungsten film (at least in E6... there's still the movie film avenue.)

    I'm trying to keep E6 tungstem totally out if the grave. I have a 100' roll of Ektachrome 160T gifted to me a month ago, expired 6/1999. Storage unknown. Tests so far as being between ei40 and 80 under 3200K, clours off a touch too.

    I also have a cache of ept 35mm, and almost 100' of way slow Ektachrome SE dupe film 3200K for duping c-41. Also about 200' of Fuji CDU-II slide dupe that is also fun to shoot under daylight or teungsten with the rught filtration (it alsway needs some)I. It is kind of like a 6ei astia, so when you want low contrast with no DOF with mega light, or the ability to shoot long shutter speeds for creative blurred moving subjects it is gret as well.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Tungsten film works best, but you can also use daylight balanced film with an 80A filter. There is a 4X (2 stop) filter factor.
