Artificial light film
An artificial light film is a photographic film whose spectral sensitivity has been selected in such a way that the light emitted from incandescent lamps in artificial light is reproduced as pure white. In this way, the yellow cast that occurs with daylight film in photos under incandescent light is avoided.
In addition to the so-called type A for short-lived amateur photo lamps with a color temperature of 3,400 Kelvin, there is also type B for professional photo lamps (including halogen lamps ) with a color temperature of 3200 K.
Artificial light film is mostly a slide film, since with this process the correct color reproduction must be ensured immediately when taking the picture.
