I have been a fan of this film. 50 iso has never been this good for cross-processing. Since last year, I have been looking forward to use up a Fuji Velvia 50 iso, but can never found one. Some say this film is rare to its rarest. Until one day, a friend of mine has a brick of this, so I consumed 2-3 rolls of film from him.

I started shooting immediately. It was the magic hour and I was very interested on how the film would come up with its lovely colors. The Fuji Velvia, with its low iso sensitivity, has some special powers (I think) that produces different contrasts shot after shot. We all know the 100 iso is for red, magenta and pink, the Sensia for its green/yellow combination, and others, but this one is fantastically interesting. I was expecting a Fuji slide film outcome, but here’s what I got. Blue, green and yellow hues. Shooting it day and night makes the film feel very special and beautiful.

I love this film. One should really try this one if you haven’t used it yet. Feels like I got a combination of all Fuji slide films in one roll. If you are curious, check out my pictures.

    Seems really different from the Velvia 100 xpro (which produces purple photos). I prefer this Velvia 50's color tone.

    @ethermoon: do you underexpose your shots? Some people give me the advice to underexpose to one or two stops when shooting for xpro.

    I like Velvia 50, but if Fuji ever releases Fortia 50 again, you should try it. It is much more saturated than Velvia 50. I still have five or six rolls in my freezer in size 120. I tend to use it in my old Kodak #1 Panoram camera. Great stuff.

    I'd got some in my LCA+ but the lowest ISO setting is 100 should I push it a stop when I develop?
