Fujifilm Superia 400

I‘ve gone through over a dozen rolls of this stuff. It’s a pretty good print film. It does have grain that sometimes gets in the way, but it is cheap and easy to get processed. It's my fall-back film.

Fujifilm Superia Reala 100

This is a pretty good print film. Certainly not as good as say Provia but definitely less grainy than Superia 400. Unfortunately all of my examples here have been converted to greyscale and digitally toned!

Fujifilm Pro 160S

Konica Centuria pro 400

Fujifilm NPZ 800

Fujifilm NPS 160

I got some slightly expired 220 rolls of this film from before the rename (and reformulation?).

Fujifilm Pro 400H

A faster version of 160S?

Fujifilm Pro 800Z


Cheap junk I tried when I first got my 35 mm SLR in early 2005.

Colour slide

Fujifilm Velvia

Media:Film box - VelviaThis is a legendary slide film. I finally got five rolls of Velvia for my 30th birthday. Just when it looked like it was finally running out, Fujifilm announces they're making a new Velvia. Oh well. It looks like Velvia 50 will be around a while longer.

Fujifilm Provia 100F

Media:Film box - Provia 100FAn awesome slide film. I just have to remember not to over-expose it. I got five rolls off of eBay early in 2006 and didn't finish them until late 2007. Provia seems to have really good reciprocity - I was able to rescue quite a lot of shadow detail in many shots.

Ilford PanF plus 50

Media:Film box - Pan F Plus 50

For a slow film, PanF plus sure does have high contrast.

Ilford Delta 3200

Media:Film box - Delta 3200

Ilford FP4 plus 125

Media:Film box - FP4 plus 125A good black and white film. A little on the slow side however.

Ilford HP5 plus 400

Media:Film box - HP5 plus 400ISO 400 is a nice general speed for a lot of stuff. I got a bulk film loader and 30.5 m roll of HP5 plus in mid 2007.

Lucky SHD100

Cheap B&W Chinese film. At AU$32 for 10 rolls of 120, who could say no? So far this seems to be a pretty good, old-fashioned, cubic-grained B&W film. I did seem to get a bit of a halo effect with the high-contrast “tree tunnel” photos on the second roll. And my stupid P6 is mucking up the frame spacing so I only get 10 frames on a roll of 120 instead of 12 or 13.

Fujifilm Neopan Acros 100
