If you're someone who likes slightly stronger colors without unnatural color shifts, prefers some saturation in your photos and wants higher speed slide films...The Fuji Sensia 400 is your answer!
When I first heard about Fuji Sensia 400, I knew I had to try it. I bought a few rolls from a fellow Lomographer. I was excited to find out how a ‘faster’ slide film would perform and what kind of surprise was waiting for me when I developed my roll.
I took the first roll with me to a trip to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) , Vietnam in June. I shot this roll with my Minolta X700 SLR camera, and boy! I was so happy with what I got when the film was developed. The photos were so pleasing!
The colors were well-defined, and I love the blue skies! Sensia 400 doesn’t make the sky turn into shades of pink, purple or green. It gave me lovely blue skies.
In the softer light in the morning, it gave a slight green/yellow cast over the photo, but it made the red color in the photo stand out more.
When shooting indoors, it reproduces most of the colors truthfully and I like how the resulting photos turned out as shown below:
And I was lucky enough to get my hands on a La Sardina for a few weeks to try it out… And it was the perfect opportunity to load up the next roll of Sensia 400 and head out into the sun!!!
Skin tones turned out very pleasing, looked saturated but not over done, and certainly not unnatural.
Although it’s a 400iso film, and being used on a fixed shutter camera like the La Sardina, it still manages to give pretty decent doubles. Check it out!
If you’re someone who likes slightly stronger colors, but not unnatural color shifts…
If you’re someone who prefers some saturation in your photos over the usual color negatives…
If you’re someone who wants a little more speed than the usual 100iso (or 200iso) slide films…
What are you waiting for?!
Fuji Sensia 400 is your answer!
