    Question, isn't this some kind every packaged other Fujifilm that was then like the cheaper version but basically the same as some other higher film?

    I have some weird recollection about that, anyway I would totally buy this if I actually shot C-41, however I almost never do, and I say that not completely seriously I have shot a few C-41 Rolls, I haven't about many of them, but I tend not to like the colors as much as E-6 since most of my color work is landscape work and I like that whole pop unrealistic kind of saturated color.

    By the time I'm ready to actually use some C-41 this will sadly be gone, but I don't have extra money to put into films that I "maybe" will use and probably just go bad after 10 years... LOl

    Reala had no "cheaper" versoin, although there were Reala and Superia Reala films.

    No, I believe they are not the same as there once was Reala in 135 too.

    Reala in 120 is my favorite color neg film, colors are amazing and have just enough punch without looking too saturated. I should pick some up from freestyle.

    Reala really is wonderful - very easy to scan accurately and to get the colours right on RA4, compared to most Kodak emulsions. Those links are scans from negs - and Stone, if you scan, you can get the whole pop-unrealistic saturated look from a film like this. And from Ektar, which tends to be damn cheap and is crazy-fine-grained, you can get about as much saturation as velvia.

    Reala 135 is discontinued, 120 it's hard to tell. Doesn't seem to be actively imported by Fuji USA but there's lots in the market including very fresh stuff.

    Reala is the cheap film; Fuji's Pro* lines (160NS, 160C, 400H, etc) are the, well, pro versions. Reala has wonderful skin tones and colour accuracy but much more grain compared to 160NS or Portra160. It's about as grainy as Portra 400 despite being 2 stops slower.

    You can over-expose Portra and 400H by 3 to 5 stops and it just goes pastel. Reala can go magenta if you do that; while it renders greens wonderfully (it is a Fuji emulsion, of course it likes green!) for a correct or slight over exposure, the green channel seems to shoulder off earlier than the others. So be at least a little careful with exposure.
