Fuji Film

Single-8 was invented by Fuji Japan. When Kodak introduced that they were working on a new format that would replace double8 Fuji was also busy in inventing a new film type for amateur use.

The main idea from Fuji Japan was to make a film that you would not have to load again like double8. So that’s were the name came up ‘Single-8’, very logical. Unfortunately Fuji single-8 was not as successful as Kodak’s cartridge because not many other manufacturers made their films for the Single-8 system. The system from Fuji is very popular among many film lovers because the image is very steady. That because Fuji didn’t place the pressure-plate in the cartridge but in the camera! An other advantage was that it was very easy to double expose a single-8 film. You can rewind the whole 15meters in the dark because it has two spools above each other where the Kodak system has placed the spool next to each other. But you might know the difference already.

Fuji Fujichrome R25N Single-8
A single8 color reversal daylight film (15 meter). Exposure Index 25ASA [without filter]. No longer in production according to Retro8 Japan. You might be lucky and find these somewhere. Without any doubt the best single8 film. Sharp and crispy color with fine grain. The more experienced single8 user will tell you that this has always been nicer than Kodachrome K40 :-) So if you can buy one you better o it, and expose it.

This film is super for do it yourself colour-film processing. The colour balance doesn’t change very much, even after many years. Unfortunately you can’t buy this film in a ‘regular’ super8 cartridge because it offers a lot of opportunities for independent film makers, also because of its high sensitivity.

You can process this film really very nice even after many years. The film is very sharp and has great colours Also too bad that this one isn’t available in ‘regular’ super8 cassettes… My film ‘de hand’ [the hand] was shot on this material.
