Review: Fuji Sensia 100


Sometimes it is possible to predict the prominent hues of a cross-processed slide film; like how Provia appeared greenish blue and Astia purple and magenta. But Sensia 100 is in a whole different category!

My friend bought this film for me from Hong Kong as it is really hard to find it here in Malaysia. I used this film in a recent trip to Macao where I also tried the Sensia 200, Natura 1600, and a number of other films I have yet to try.

Of all films I’ve used, I dare to say that Sensia 100 has got one of the most unpredictable results ever! The colours produced covered almost all spectrum – from deep red, jade green, purple, orange, sepia and even a little blue at times! But of course there is a dominant colour throughout, and this film appears to be on the warmer side, with red, magenta and purple frequently popping out.

Sometimes I think that the resulting colours correspond to the shooting condition at that time, but looking back, certain photos shot in the same place appeared in very different colours. For instance, take a look at these two images, which were shot within minutes, but appear in totally different colours!

I guess while using this film, just relax and let the film cast its magic. The Sensia 100 is truly unpredictability at its best!

Fuji Sensia 100 35mm yields lovely results no matter how it’s processed. When cross-processed, Fuji shots have huge contrast and a total colour shift towards green & cream, blue, or even pink – depending on your developer. See the whole range of colour slides in our Shop.

    it must depend on weather conditions, expire date and what camera you used! If you used a camera that has a good light meter, I believe your pictures shot in the same conditions should come out consistent. what i've saw until today were pitures with a LOT of pink with sensia 100, which is mostly what you got. Overexposing slide film and do a xpro normally results in yellowish pictures. It may explain why your lion picture is yellow. Shooting the sky directly almost always result into a weird exposure: too much light or something. anyway, have a nice day! :)
