Review: Fuji Sensia 200

Try this if you want more natural-looking lomographs!

If you go on a trip, would you bring your most trusted films to get more “expected” results; or would you try new ones?

On a recent trip to Macau, I brought along 4 films that are new to me: Sensia 100 and 200, Velvia 100F, Fuji Natura 1600 and the Agfa CT Precisa. The Sensia 200 is the first one I used just because I calculated that my arrival time would be around late afternoon to evening, so at least the 200 speed would be better compared to the 100 ones.

I have no prior idea on how the results would turn out — Sensia 200 is very hard to find here, and I actually traded it from my friend who got a huge amount of them when she bought them in Hong Kong a few years back. Anyway, from what she said, the film will produce very natural colors when cross processed, and I think it is really true.

Photos shot from this film, using my LC-Wide , are quite natural in terms of color reproduction. There are no wild color shifts, although the general tone seems to incline towards the blueish side. I think the film loves purple and violet as well, and the colors remind me a little of the Provia, but a much subtle one.

In bright sunny outdoors, the film gives photos a general light blue tone. Nevertheless, I think under a shade, the film will intensify warm colours too — take a look at the fruit stall image below, which is comfortably warm among other cooler shots.

This is indeed a good film; for those who prefer a much more subtle “lomographic effect”, this is the film to try!
