Fujifilm Professional has announced a new medium-speed, ultra-high image quality black-and-white film that according to Fuji boasts the world's highest standard in grain quality among ISO-100 films, rich gradation and outstanding sharpness.
Neopan 100 ACROS reproduces details of highlights and shadow areas more smoothly, while halftones are also captured naturally throughout, creating a rich, three-dimensional depth. With its wider exposure latitude, Neopan 100 ACROS is easy to use and allows outstanding tone reproduction over a wide range of subjects.
The film introduces Fujifilm's new Super Fine Sigma Grain Technology, a silver halide emulsion technology that has been accomplished through further development of Fujifilm's existing Sigma Crystal Technology and Super Uniform Fine Grain Technology. Additionally Neopan 100 ACROS uses Fujifilm's Precision Iodine Distribution Control Technology to precisely control the iodine distribution in the silver halide emulsion. This means that, in spite of its finely grained nature, the film may be developed using general black and white developers.
In addition to its fine granularity and rich tones, Neopan 100 ACROS also produces higher levels of sharpness. Its clear definition captures the finest details and its realistic portrayal of textures is outstanding. The contrast required by black-and-white photography has been greatly improved by Neopan 100 ACROS allowing clear and faithful capturing of the differences in light and darkness of the photographic subject.
