BLACK-AND-WHITE FILMS
1.FEATURES AND USES
NEOPAN 100 ACROS (120) is a medium-speed, ultra-high-image-quality black-and-white negative film thatboasts the world's highest standard in grain qualityamong ISO-100 films, rich gradation and outstandingsharpness. These features make it an excellent choicefor a wide range of photographic applications, includingportraits, landscape, architectural subjects, productphotography, photomicrography and duplication work.
Worlds Highest Standard in Grain Quality
Through the incorporation of Fujifilm's new proprietarySuper Fine-
Grain Technology, this film delivers theworld's highest standard in grain quality among ISO-100 black-and-white films. Its fine grain, along with itssuperb grain alignment and rich gradation, makes pos-sible smoother and sharper textural depiction, even inbig enlargements.
Excellent Processing Characteristics
By incorporating the newly developed P.I.D.C.(Precision Iodine Distribution Control) Technology,NEOPAN 100 ACROS (120) provides stable process-ing results not only during manual processing with allkinds of developers and fixers, but in every type ofautomatic processor as well.
Improved Reciprocity Characteristics
This film exhibits extremely minimal reduction in sen-sitivity even in extended, low-light exposures, thusproducing excellent results in astronomical photogra-phy and night scenes, as well as architecture andother subjects requiring long exposures.

The use of an exposure meter is recommended, es-pecially for indoor photography due to the wide varia-tion in brightness levels that may be encountered.Use of a tripod or other means of stabilizing the cam-era is recommended for exposures at shutter speedsof less than 1/100 second.
Flash Exposure
Shutter Speed
When electronic flash exposures are to be made, theshutter speed for cameras with a focal-plane shuttershould be set in accordance with the camera instruc-tions. In the case of lens-shutter cameras (such ascompact cameras, certain medium-format camerasand studio cameras), the shutter speed can be varied.
Lens Aperture
The following formula can be used to obtain satisfac-tory lens opening.
Electronic Flash Guide Number (at ISO 100)Electronic Flash-to-Subject Distance(meters or feet)
When an automatic electronic flash unit is employed,set the film speed at ISO 100. Since the amount oflight reflected onto subjects from surrounding sur-faces will differ with the conditions, refer to the flashunit instructions.120

6. SAFELIGHT
Handle the film in total darkness. If a safelight must beused, a Fuji Safelight Filter SLG-4* (dark green) with a20 watt bulb may be used at a distance not less than 1meter (3.3 ft.). In such cases, use the safelight for asshort a period as possible and only towards the end ofthe development period.
7. PROCESSING(1) Development
To prevent the appearance of development marks andassure uniform finish, agitate the developer continu-ously for the first minute and for five seconds everyminute thereafter.
Development Conditions(Small Tank Development)
The following table shows development times andtemperatures for each developer.
NOTES
EI (Exposure Index) is the exposure determinationdesignator and the camera or exposure meterISO speed should be set to this value.The (1:1) parenthesized ratio given in the forego-ing table indicates that one part water is to beadded to one part developer.

Since the final processing results are affected bysuch factors as the agitation and circulation condi-tions of the processor, it is recommended that testprints be made in order to determine the proper de-velopment time.
(2) Stop Bath
For the stop bath a 1.5 % acetic acid solution is recom-mended. Immerse the film in the bath at 15 to 25°C (59to 77°F) for 20 to 30 seconds while agitating.
(3) Fixing
Fujifix, Fujifix Super-L or Super Fujifix are recommendedfor fixing. The recommended fixing times at 15 to 25°C(59 to 77°F) are shown below. The required fixing time istwice the time it takes for the film to become clear. Inorder to maintain fixing uniformity and prevent film stain-ing, agitate the fixing solution continuously for the first 30seconds.

Filter Recommendations
When a filter is to be used, multiply the normal exposureby a proper filter factor using the table below as a guide.

(4) Washing
Wash the film in running water for 20 to 30 minutes. Theuse of Fuji QW (quick washing agent) is recommendedwhen a shorter washing time is desired or when the pro-cessed film shows a slight reddish purple cast. Whenusing Fuji QW, pre-wash the film for about 30 seconds,immerse it in Fuji QW solution for 1 minute, and wash itin running water for 5 minutes. The required wash watertemperature is 15 to 25°C (59 to 77°F).
(5) Drying
 After washing, wipe both sides of the film very carefullywith a soft sponge, then immerse it in a 1-to-200 solutionof Fuji Driwel for 30 seconds and hang it up for uniformdrying. For natural drying, hang the film in a well-venti-lated dust free location. To protect important negativesfrom oxidizing gases that cause color fading, it is recom-mended that the film be treated with Fuji Ag Guard. Inthis case, use Fuji Ag Guard instead of Fuji Driwel in theprocedure.

9.PROCESSED FILM STORAGE
Exposure to light, high temperature and humid condi-tions can cause color changes in processed films.Therefore, place such films in sleeves and store them indark, dry, cool and well ventilated locations under thefollowing conditions.
