Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 800

The end of fast color film is coming to an end. I’m not sure why, because they are so versatile. You can shoot inside a dark house, outside in sunny weather, underwater at a fish, and especially at sporting event. The evil corporation at Fujifilm must have churned some numbers, found that it is not profitable to churn out Superia 800s and stop all production. The supply has dried up, so what you see out there is all there is. Well… I might have figured out a way to get fresh Superia 800 film, but let me check that out before reporting back.

Review:¬† Superia X-TRA 800 is really grainy. The only roll I have shot was expired but I did not overexposed them (shot at box speed). Color seems creamy/pastel but I have a feeling it has to do with exposure. I have a few more expired rolls, will play around and update in the near future. I wouldn’t recommend paying for expired Superia 800, especially Portra 800 and Lomo 800 (the only other color-ISO 800 films) are fresh and still in production. Always support the companies that are trying to keep film alive!
