Superia 200 is a great film for all purpose photography

If it is at sale give it a shot, it may surprise you

Superia gets the job done

i really like its grain

however its colours are a mix match of environmental effects... sometimes the colours come out nice, sometimes now

its pretty good in broad daylight when there isnt much orange/red

the skies are generally nice

however in the presence of anything yellow or orange, it takes on a rather flat looking tint

It is lovely film I think, but it doesn't do white skin tones too good. Gives white skin an orange cast. But Superia 200 is great for almost everything else.

Thank you all.

What I like shooting film is like I can change camera by only changing film. Don't you guys agree? Is it me who is just silly?

Although I agree with you, you can really change the photographs appearance by changing film.
You can also do so by changing lenses. 2 different lenses in the same focal length will give completely different looks.
Shoot, even just changing f-stops will often really alter the look.

That's just one of the things I love about photography, it's just soo easy to alter the appearance of your work.
