Fujifilm Fujichrome Provia 100F

For a short period of time, evil company (Fujifilm) was the only ones who produced all the color slide film in the world. That doesn’t stand anymore with re-introduction Kodak Ektarchrome E100 in 2019. With that said, Fujifilm did produce 2 lines of slide film, one of them being the Provia 100F. It was designed to be more general use, compared to the landscape Velvia line. Both lines are extremely expensive, so be sure to have a well calibrated camera and subject worth shooting. Slide films are notorious for needing correct exposure as latitude are not as wide compared to negative film. I mean, who in the right mind would shoot these without knowing the status of their camera……

Review: Of the three slide films I shot in the same trip, Provia turned out fine, whereas the other two (Velvia 100, Ektarchrome 100) were complete disaster (my camera was underexposing by 1.5 stop) Grains are non-existent. Colors are true to life, but slightly blue/cool in low light situation, which could be contributed by underexposure. Will shoot more before reporting back, but I have a backlog of other films and hard to drop $$$ on fresh expensive slide film.

Fuji Velvia 100
