We have to say that at heart we are Analog folk and so now we bring you new Fujifilm Film . Even though we have our fair share of digital compacts, iphones, and now even a Nikon D800 in our collections when we want to ‘Really’ capture a scene or portrait we think Film still triumphs. And although Digital photography has struck a few blows in it’s Analog older brother we think there is room for both in this world.
So we are now starting to add even more choices of film in the HolgaDirect store. This week we have added the following selection of 4 films from FujiFilm:
Velvia 100F : Color Slide Film in 120 Format
Bearing some of that characteristic Fuji Velvia magic the 100F is probably a little more balanced in color rendition than it’s famous cousin Velvia 50 (one of our all time favourite landscape films). Whereas Velvia 50 excels for nature and landscape work it was never a good choice for portraits or general purpose photography. However Velvia 100F is a very fine grain positive (slide) format film which can be used for pretty much anything you throw at it with accurate color tones and sharpness. In addition this film is suitable for pushing/pulling by 2 stops to give even more flexibility.
Provia 400X: Color Slide Film in 120 Format
Another great all round film the Provia 400X is a nicely color balanced color reversal film which is great for longer exposures as well as pushing and pulling. Sharpness is excellent and we particularly like it for street scenes/cityscapes.
Superia 400 X-TRA: Color negative in 35mm Format
Consumer grade color negative film which works well for all subjects having well balanced natural color rendition with a wide exposure latitude and good skin tone reproduction.
FujiColor C200: Color negative in 35mm Format
Budget consumer grade color negative film great for use in Toy Cameras such as Holga’s. Cheap enough to just get out and shoot without worrying about the cost of the film adding up. We suggest using this for nailing your film technique before moving up to the professional grade film.
Anyway, we’ll be sure to be adding many more films to our store in the upcoming months so please do let us know if you would like to see anything in particular!
