This affordable film is one of my go-to picks in the summer season. I use it for both sport and street photography. Here you can see how this nice film can be used to photograph everything under the sun. This is a great general purpose film, in my opinion, and is good for action or nature photography!

I love classic photography. I seldom use cross processing and oftentimes I use classic composition in my photos. I use this film when I need to take color photos on a sunny day! It has minimal grain, delicate colors, nice contrast, an affordable price and great quality! Just take a look at these photos of flowers taken around a golf club in Italy:
This film almost has the same fine grain of the Fujicolor 100 film (which is now very hard to find in Italy) with a lower overall contrast and slightly less saturated colors. It is ideal for nature photography in my opinion.
I often use this film for portrait or street photography. I just love the neutral colors it renders.
The resolution is great, I can obtain 20×30cm prints without tracks of grain!
This film is great even when you shoot in back lit environments! No tracks of “underexposed noise” in the silhouette! And even in a difficult shadowy conditions against a blue sky, the cold dominance of the blue color is easily corrected during scanning! These photos were scanned using a professional Fuji Frontier Mini Lab by my trusty photo lab in Como.
Using a shutter speed of 1/250s on a sunny day, you can choose a narrow aperture (from F8 to F16) which is ideal to get a good depth of field. This comes in handy when you do action or sport photography.
All of these photos were taken during a public demo of golf and rugby at the Virginia Golf Club in Appiano Gentile, North of Italy. It’s a good way to get to know these two wonderful sports.
