Got around to scanning my first roll of Fuji Superia X-Tra 800. Really nice film for the cost going to be using it a lot since one roll of portra 800 is nearly as much as a 4 pack of the fuji 800.

Very nice. Yes - i go back and forth about the 800 Superia. At times I adore and at times I get very angry at it - which basically boils down to me not using it properly, which is normally not over-exposing it at least a tad. Underexposed it can look like death, but over-exposed a dream. I normally rate it a half stop slower than box.

Either way it's cheap-as-chips, but wish I could find it cheaply in 36exp rolls however.

Great composition and color, fine photo! The square format really suits you.

Thnaks. I'd say all color negative film likes a bit of overexposure from box speed. so I'll for sure be shooting this at lower than 800iso when possible.

I went to my local Italian car show and had to shoot a roll of ektar (for the reds). All shot with my Mamiya C33

I didn't miss my 50mm – most shots were perfect for the 35mm. If I needed more, than my 85mm did a good job – never missed a 100mm or even 135mm.

That lightning shot was really creepy – Thunderstorm came really quick above the sea. Didn't have a tripod so I just placed the cam on the ground. Pressed the shutter and that ligthning came down – really close – really loud – and yes, didn't feel comfortable...

Thanks for your comments.

Definitely the case overall... I mean to say that Superia 800 looks comparatively, especially bad when it is at all underexposed.

Digging this Franka 6x9 - I think I prefer it to the Zeiss Nettar, quite a bit.

Daring of you to go with slide film given expense and processing hurdles. The picture looks even better on Flicker. Looks like you were focused on infinity.

There is simply little I like more than a well-exposed medium-format color slide. Thanks. I didn't note this shot, but if I remember it was just shy of inf, at either f11 or f16.. I believe it was the latter. I forgot my lightmeter, so I (as I do frequently) chimped a good bit with my Ricoh GR set to 47mm crop.
