If you want a versatile medium speed colour negative film, with subtle tones and accurate colour rendition, then Fuji Pro 400H is great.
When I first started using my Diana F+ I looked at the Lomography store and saw that they recommended Fuji Pro 400H 120 as the best film to use with this camera. At 400 ISO, this film has enough speed to work in very variable lighting conditions and also works well with the Diana F+’s aperture weather icons.
The color palette of this film is very true to life, but for my taste it lacks a bit of contrast and saturation. It is still a really nice film to use and I normally have a roll of it in my bag as a reliable back up. Where it really stands out is as a portrait film as it renders skin tones very accurately and the lack of strong contrast leads to softer looking images.
Whilst you are never going to mistake it for xpro film, sometimes it can produce some really full-on vivid color tones that really surprise you.
It is also a really nice film to use for multiple exposures as it’s wide exposure latitude means that it doesn’t get over exposed too easily and is quite forgiving if you mess up your setting.
This is definitely a really nice film, to help you get to grips with the basics of photography, enjoy it and Lomo on!
