This discussion will be academic soon because Fuji have discontinued Reala, a film I love, I've had stunning 15" x12" conventional optical prints from the pro lab I use from 35mm, and even better "20X16" from 120 Reala, I'm so analogue I don't own a scanner so I can't say what how it scans, but I can say that if it's used in the conventional way it isn't grainy at all.
120 is discontinued too? In another thread lilserenity got a reply from Fuji UK and they claim Reala 120 is a big seller and remains on sale:
Reala 120 is a big seller and will continue to be imported into the UK
135 Reala is continuing too but only in 36 exposure rolls.
Don't go spreading rumours...!
Im resurrecting this thread, as its got one of the best comparisons of films done to date. Google has got very forgetful in the last 12 months!
Any update on the REALA test?
Reala 120 is very easy to find here in China.
