Sensia 100 - My new favourite film.

Credits: crevans27

I recently travelled to Lapland for the trip of a life time. We spent an absolute fortune on it and I wanted to make sure I got some good pictures so splashed the cash for a few rolls of sensia 100 expired. recently developed the first roll definitely worth the money, I think its a new favourite! A few of the best shots from a husky safari below. Please stop by and check out that album

    I personally despise xpro sensia but having said that if you like pink casts and washed out red toned images try Provia 100F next time. This evening i developed a roll of Provia 100F for a friend and he got some strong cast results :

    @chilledvondub wow, that looks good. I actually bought two rolls of provia 100f and velvia for the time too but Im yet to develop them!

    @chilledvondub Thanks! Snow doesn't help with the washed out look to be fair, there's some street graffiti ones at the end of the roll which are a bit strong that'll be up in a bit.

    @chilledvondub Is there more than one type of Provia 100F? I am asking, because I did x-pro on that and got NO cast at all:…
    @crevans27 this is nice set, I like the pink cast, but I don't think I have any Sensia stashed....

    @adash i think there must be as i have had results with casts and results without too!
    Without pink casts:…

    With Pink Casts:…

    Unless Fuji brand both Provia 100 and 100F as different film when infact they could be the same.
    I know Kodak used to brand 2 different types of Portra 160 a skin tone one and a vivid colour one when infact they were both identical except the Dx code on the vivid colour registered in a lab to be push processed so the contrast increased on the bleach and fix

    @chilledvondub Sorry, but mine was 100F too, and it didn't have the pink cast. Pretty different results so far....
    BTW, I didn't know that about the Portra. Well, I knew there were two and more types of it, based on contrast and saturation, but I had no clue that it was accomplished via push-processing.
    Just for the sake of the punctual correctness: bleach and fix times don't affect contrast. These steps are <always> performed to completion, so that no metallic silver and no silver halide is left in the emulsion.
    Leaving silver in the colour emulsion is a completely different technique called "Bleach bypass".
    You're quite correct that over-developing colour print film does increase the contrast and saturation. In fact I did just that with my latest two albums:…
    (well, the second is yet to be uploaded).
    You can see some odd saturation and mild colour casts on the cheapest colour print film available now - Kodacolor 200. The film was exposed properly, but over-developed by about one stop. I am however planning to go further in that direction.
