Fuji Pro 400H: For a Neutral Feel


Neutral is the word. It captures skin tones accurately, but may be too muted for other subjects.

Fuji Pro 400H is a high-speed colour negative with fine grain. As most negatives go, the film shines more when used for portrait photography.

I brought it on a trip to Malacca and took photos of old blacksmiths doing their dying trade in pretty little shophouses. As you can see, skin tones turn out rather well.

But for nature, it’s a whole different story.

I also brought my camera to the botanic gardens to shoot my favourite subject: nature/greenery. To be honest, I didn’t fancy the results much — they didn’t seem saturated enough and looked rather lifeless compared with the better turnout for portraits.

I guess for nature, I’d still stick to using slides!

The Fuji Pro 400H 120 is one of the finest 120 colour films out there. You get the extra speed of 400 ISO while maintaining excellent fine-grain and banging colours of a slower film. See the whole range of colour negatives in our Shop.

    Its my stock of choice for mooching about shooting photo diary. Check out my new lomo wall Vert, i used it on that shot and think it gets some really rich colors on Lubitels. Good (or purposefully bad) light helps and f8-11 boosts the saturation slightly. Agreed though for something kick ass in the saturation dept you cant beat slide.
