Provia 400X

I have just shot several 120 rolls of the new Fujifilm Provia 400X film. (I live in Japan which is why I was able to get hold of it. It came out in 35mm about 3 months ago and 120 format a month ago.)

Although I haven't done any scientific testing there seems to be an improvement in the amount of grain over Provia 400F. I will, however, only use it when Provia 100F is not going to be fast enough. Provia 100F continues to be my favorite film by far.

Even in Japan they haven't released 400X in 220 rolls, but hopefully this will change in the future.

Overall I am just happy that Fujifilm is continuing to improve on film rather than just seeing it as a shrinking market and beating a hasty retreat. Hoorah!


Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
