Expired Fuji Superia 200 110 Film: Totally Superia but sometimes a Sensia!

The expired Fuji Superia 200 100 film is a reliable film that produces earthy and vintage-looking photos. But wait, there's more! On random occasions, this film will wow you with unpredictable magenta and pink hues to your photos! And also, don't forget those funky sprocket holes!

I am fairly new to Lomography and I love shooting and Lomowalking with my Micro Holga 110 camera. The camera is so light and petite that I can just lug it around anywhere I go!

Just a month ago, I went back to our province home in Tarlac, Philippines and got a surprise gift from my 47-year old uncle! He gave me an unopened box of Fujifilm Superia 200 110 film which he most likely bought when he was still in college (a long, long time ago…). He found it while cleaning and rummaging through his old things in his room. I appropriately thanked him and explained to him that I absolutely loved his gift since this film is not in production any longer. I have only chanced upon one seller in the Philippines that sells this awesome film. I got so excited that I immediately loaded it on my Micro Holga!

Here is a quick picture of the film cartridge with it’s box.

The thing I like most about 110 films is their grainy output. For some, grain is an atrocity, but for me it gives that vintage/retro feel to the picture. Combine that 110 film grain with Fuji Superia’s natural colors and you get a great photo that looks like you shot about two decades ago.

Since the film is a 200 ISO film, it can hold it’s own indoors with ample light escaping from a window.

I mentioned that the expired Fuji Superia 200 film was earthy because the brown’s looked kind of “browner”. The browns felt like they have life in them and not just a plank of lifeless wood. It also adds to that “vintage feel” that I was talking about.

The Fuji Superia 200 110 + Holga Micro combo produces the most beautiful sunlight coronas that I’ve seen. Coronas will look majestic and lifelike and not look like it was photo-shopped.

But wait, there’s more! On random occasions, this film will wow you with unpredictable magenta and pink hues to your photos just like a Sensia 100 film! And also, don’t forget those funky sprocket holes!

I love the expired Fuji Superia 200 film; I love it so much that I can’t put it in words. Oh wait, I can. I’ll put it in these words: I think I’ll buy 4 more of these babies!
