Fuji Sensia 100: All Red

Rated as a medium film speed at 100 ISO, the Fuji Sensia 100 Super Fine Grain is the first choice when you want to do cross processing. Let me show you the results!

This slide film brings back good memories. It’s the first slide film I’ve ever cross-processed. It was an astonishing experience looking for a lab to get it developed and I still think that guy developed it manually. The second problem was to get the film scanned. Mostly, I scanned the photos, because I couldn’t find a scanner to scan this film as I wanted to. The cross processing technique is simply about developing a slide film (usually developed in E6) in chemicals for C41 processing (used for developing color negatives).

Basically, this is film provides beautiful pictures, depending on the scanner used. I got 3 different examples from the same film. I loved the red in it. It has a little bit of grain in it because it had been cross processed. I found out it’s best to underexpose by one stop because I think it has the tendency to over-expose or get a very bright red when shooting the sky.

I mostly shot indoors with it but it can be used outdoors as well. It’s rated by Fuji at 100 ISO. I don’t know if it’s best for prints because cross processed prints can’t be as large as a normal developed slide film or a color negative.

If you love red, this is your film!

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.
