Fuji Astia (35mm,100 iso) User-Review

Fuji Astia is a fun little film, especially if you want super-pink photos!

I’ve heard that this film when cross-processed, has a mad pink colour shift. I needed some pink photos in my collection so decided to try it out. As soon as I developed the film I knew it was going to be awesome – the negative was greenish. To say I was shocked with the results is an understatement.

Everything came out with a bizarre pink tone. Not many other colours were visible – blues and yellows came through, but everything else was pink, red or purple. During daylight the colours shifted to pink; under articificial light they shifted to deep red.

I don’t think I’ll be using this film all of the time, but it will be useful if I need some more pinky-reddy-purpley photos!

    The film can have even cooler colors - just skip Hebrew and scroll for the pics. Makes me wanna try it for a long time. As you can see - it's also a matter of scanning (still pink/brown, but more colors). My Velvia x-pro scan got totally red in one place and red+amazing blue in the other. Scan in several places and be surprised :) thanks for your post.
