Versatile Provia: Fuji Provia (120, 100ISO) User-Review


As I am only entering my 10th month of shooting with my Holga, I consider myself to be a rookie of sorts. It didn’t take me long, however, to discover the surreal and impossible beauty of slide film.

Inspired by the work of my newfound Lomo friends, I started shooting with different kinds of slide film and Fuji Provia 100F has proven so far to be the most versatile slide film that I have ever used!

Cross-processing gives slide film much of its rare beauty in terms of color shifts and variations in contrast. Using Fuji Provia 100F in my Holga, I have found that it responds quite well to cross processing when shooting in strong sunlight. The fine grain produces sharp images with vivid and bright blues, greens, and reds that look pure and strong. Here comes the versatility element – if the weather is cloudy and not cooperating then take this film with you to a party or any indoor event. Use a flash, get up close to your subjects, play with multiple exposures, and you will get incredible images. When cross-processed and push-processed, this film gives you strong colors that explode and ripple into each other giving your shots surreal colors and unexpected textures. So whether you’ve got the sun on your back or you’re the life of the party – load some Fuji Provia 100F into your camera and brace yourself for the fantastic results!
