Travelling with Fuji Superia X-TRA 400 film

I recently got a few rolls of Fuji Superia X-TRA 400 film. I haven’t used this film for years, since I opted for more “pro” emulsions. But this film has a very vivid color and it tends to render scenes with an oversaturated look which I wanted to try again.

So, I loaded on roll in my Leica M7 and just took one lens with me, the Voigtlander super wide Heliar 15mm f4.5.

From my experience, with this film you can get photos with magenta or green tones and vivid color, and that really alters the way a scene is rendered in comparison to a more neutral film. There I also evident grain, but its a cheap 400 ISO film, so that is expected.

I was not disappointed from the results. They came out exactly as I expected !!

I have quite of few rolls of this film and my next camera to try it with will be the Olympus XA, I think they will make an excellent pair.

Enjoy the rest of the images.
