Fuji NPZ 800

I shot my first roll of NPZ 800 recently and I have to say the results are much better than I expected. I did a bit of research on this film before I shot the roll, and read that shooting it at ISO640 gave the best results so thats what I did. Most of the shots were taken outdoors after the sun had gone behind the hills so there was still some daylight but not much.

Here are a few shots from the roll. Mostly of my daughter, but it was good to test it on a moving subject in low light.

All shots taken with MZ-L and FA 50 1.4.

Extremely fine shots.
nr. 3 and 6 are pure magic.

Film simply works great in portraiture

I was really surprised at how fine the grain is for 800 speed film (although i don't have any other experience with 800 speed film.
