Fuji Velvia (120, 50 iso) user-review

This is my favourite film of all time! Probably one of the punchiest films ever created and will pick up every inch of colour in your shots.

This is the lowest rated ISO Fujifilm did for Velvia which is designed specifically for daylight use. This is the main reason I feed my Holga with it whenever it is a bright sunny day! However, I have used it with a flash and the results still blow my mind everytime!

As I am quite fond of the odd landscape shots with my Holga, this is the perfect choice of film. It has what I think is the best colour reproduction available when processed as E6.

When you cross process this beast, those true to life colours are boosted to a higher contrast lovely-ness! My shots have tended to come back with a slight green and blue tint but I think this just kicks ass! So if you’re going to shoot under a bright sun, go slow and give it a go!

    Nice pictures. But for me the best film is Ektachrome. But I started lomography with Velvia...

    Thanks for the confidence booster. I just bought some Velvia 50 as well. excited to see how it turns out. Think I'll x-process though.

    Velvia 50 is pretty much my favorite slide film of all time, so stunning when x-processed.
