Fuji Velvia 50: Not Another ISO 50 Film


To be honest, this was the first time I used Fuji Velvia 50. I decided to use this film for capturing the beautiful sunrise in Mount Bromo.

I shot Fuji Velvia 50 with Horizon Perfekt so I can control the exposure.

I think I got the wrong exposure the first time, so there’s a bit of overexposure. I thought that with an ISO 50 film, I have to let the light burn the film a little bit more than usual. I was wrong!

After realizing that I was overexposing the film, I decided to set the Horizon Perfekt to the normal setting or the setting I usually set on my Horizon Perfekt. That decision was pretty good! See the shots below!

WOW! Look at that green! It’s that green trademark by Fujichrome when it’s cross processed. Green, green, green! It’s green with a smooth grain of a ISO 50 film. It’s definitely not another ISO 50 film!

Advice for future users: I think you have to expose this film right so you can taste and enjoy the rich green hues with fine grain. For me, I think I set the wrong exposure but I enjoyed using this film. It’s my first experience using a slide film with ISO 50. So if any of you gets the chance to use this film, I think you’ll enjoy the fine green that this film offers. In meantime, let’s embrace this green natural film by Fuji! LOMO ON!

Fuji Velvia 50 RVP 35mm is super-saturated and as high-res as film can get. When cross-processed, greens become greener and reds and yellows pop. See the whole range of colour slides in our Shop.

    Love that film ,too. It's perfect for my Agfa Clack (beacuse it has a 1/30 shutter setting) and I love the results!

    Velvia 50, or rather the orignial Velvia (RVP) remains one of my personal favourite E-6 slide films. A little hard to scan, but still with the right light, the stuff sings.
