Fuji 64T Blue Cast

    I recently shot some stills under tungsten lighting, using fuji 64T slide
    film. On some shots I noticed that there was a slight bluish cast in the
    corners. I also noticed the same thing on some shots I did on provia 100F
    (actually on some shots i did on provia - it was very blue)

    Is this a result of overexposing? Or something else? The picture appeared to
    be exposed properly.

    I read somewhere that these films tend to turn blue under certain lighting
    conditions (overcast etc) - is there any truth to that?

  2. Under tungsten light there shouldn't be. Was there some daylinght leaking in?

    Nope none at all. This was in a studio, only tungsten lights were used.

    Once, I used Provia to shoot a white door, and a very blue cast can be seen.

    I'll scan the slides tonight and post a link to them so you can see what I'm
    talking about...

  4. As far as I know, there used to be different versions of the
    64T. Currently, only 64T TypeII is available, and it
    is designed for 3100K lamps. The older 64T (Type I, presumably)
    was for 3400K, IIRC.
    3100K is rather warm, and a 3400K lamp would result in
    a slight bluish cast. Of course, it should be the same
    for all shots. Do you know the color temperature of
    your lamps? Anyway, this could be corrected with
    a weak warming filter.
