Apparently Fujicolor 100 Industrial is a negative film only sold in bulk in Japan.
Something interesting about Fujicolor 100 Industrial film is that it has a Tungsten emulsion (with a Kelvin temperature of 3200), but it is daylight balanced because the dye colors have been shifted to account for the cooler temperature. It turns out that you can do the same thing in a Fujifilm camera using white balance shift, and it creates a similar aesthetic. In a nod to it over at Fuji Weekly Ritchie Roesch has created a few recipes to emulate this film stock one of which is Classic Negative Industrial. I was recently ticked off by a world famous photographer here on this blog in the comments section - who made the suggestion “Gear up, man. Stop half-arsing it!” Well as luck would have it since the old X-T10 is getting a little long in the tooth and showing signs of wear, Xmas is just around the corner, and the model 2 1/2 generations advanced from it was on the market at a decent price how could could I not take such good advice. I took the plastic out of mothballs and reluctanctly ordered the X-T30 mk ii. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Having taken the plunge and wanting to simply my workflow I was on the hunt for recipes which would work for me SOOC. I happened upon the one above and it looked sufficiently industrial - I dare not use the word "grungy" - programmed it in and duly set off to try it in my local haunt under a number of conditions. The deep slightly desaturated punchy tones ,weak film grain and contrast are a winner in my book and it will become a permanent fixture in the custom setting list for the foreseeable future .
Since the Zombie shoot with the ageing X-T10 and lensbaby turned out so well this camera will not be discarded but has been repurposed as my new Fujifilm Noir Camera. Until such time as it gives up the ghost altogether that is.
