Tungsten film where to buy

Post by robinb » Sat Aug 01, 2009 1:48 pm Etc/GMT-1+01:00


I have a little art copying project coming up and would like to use Fuji quickloads ideally but
I cant find any Tungsten sheet film in England
I have tried online but no one who lists it that I have called has it in stock
have kodak and fuji stopped making the stuff or is it just not imported into England

Seems to be plenty of 120 about so I could get a rollfilm back but not really were I'm looking to go

The Fuji shop lists it in sheets, but not Quickload. You'll have to be sure it is in stock though, as they sometimes advertise and don't actually have stock.

PFD in Manchester did have some in, not long ago, but again only in sheets, not QL.

A combination of pressure to go digital from the specialty publisher of my wife's occasional articles along with absolutely horrible results when Fuji introduced its latest tungsten-balanced film (64T) drove me to a Canon G9. It's served the purpose fine, although I hate digital capture and was a satisfied user of RTPII Quickloads before. Fuji evaluated my 64T transparencies and remaining unexposed sheets but wouldn't admit to a problem, blaming the labs instead. I included some stellar RTPII transparencies shot at the same time and processed in the same batch, but Fuji ignored that inconvenient situation.

It's not Quickload or Readyload, and it's not in England, but you should be able to receive Kodak's EPY from B&H fairly quickly. I think the color rendition is as good as RTPII's was, perhaps better, though it's slightly grainier. Currently 4x5 is in stock, both 10 and 50 sheets:

If you're interested and have the equipment for it, B&H also has 13x18 and 8x10 in stock:

Good luck with your project.
