Review: Fuji Velvia 100F

Under the right condition, this slide film sure is one heck of a crazy film to cross process!

I remember seeing a Lomograph on this website a while ago — it was taken with a camera that I don’t really remember, but the film used was Fuji Velvia 100F. The image stuck on me until now; it displayed an amazing hue of reddish purple tone, with intense contrast and it just oozes brilliance. A shot that would make everyone proud, it was the Photo of the Day.

When I finally got my hands on Velvia for the first time, I didn’t want to use it until the trip to Macau. Thankfully, the weather is really sunny and bright, and I hoped the best for my photos to turn out good.

The results were amazing, with a little of mixed emotions thrown in. Scenes outdoors are near perfect, with the expected reddish purple hues across the image. However, in scenes under the shade or indoors, the red tint tends to be overwhelming, sometimes just too powerful to be handled. I think this film still works best under bright outdoor conditions where natural lighting is sufficient.

I can see this film as the perfect choice if you are spending your day outdoors hiking or shooting landscapes; either way the photos are going to be amazing!

    These are great photos! Quick question, do you know what the results would be like if you processed these photos normally? Thanks :)

    Hey, these are lovely. Have they been cross processed or did you get them developed normally?
