ANALOGUE: Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400

MONDAY AUGUST 20, 2018

This variant of 35mm renders skin tone well, especially so for fairer complexion. Being a 400 speed film, it is useful for most conditions. So long the camera has the shutter speed to match but grain’s noticeable which is a norm at such ISO ratings. Like many film, Super X-tra loves light so some help from the burning star, pictures will certainly pop.

 

Unlike Kodak Colorplus 200 and Fuji C200, shooting below box speed is not required as photographs are well exposed at 400.

CHARACTERISTICS

Detailed

Sharp

Pleasing colours

The Fujifilm’s Superia X-tra 400 brings about a colder side of colour palate where for some reasons remind me of autumn. Colours are tuned towards undersaturation, very Fuji, but the colour red, never fails to grab attention. The X-tra can be regarded as the best of both worlds, delivering reasonably fast speeds yet controlled grain. The film is flexible on exposure latitude where shooting at harsh sunlight will not overexposed highlights while retaining detail.

 

With Agfa Vista 400 out of the way, albeit a bump in price this is my current fix.
