    Got some Sensia 100 cheap at the Ritz Camera closeout. What should I know?

    I've never shot with this film before, but it was a dollar a roll in the local Ritz that's going out of business so I grabbed some rolls. Anyone have some insight into this films strengths and weaknesses?

    I find it to be one of the ideal "all-around" slide films out there. Not overly saturated, neither too high nor too low contrast. If you haven't tried slide film yet, my best advice is to bracket all shots ± 2/3 to 1 stop on your first roll. Slide film has very little latitude, but luckily Sensia has greater latitude than several other slide films, good enough to use in a P&S.

    I'll have to go shoot some local raptors before I go chasing big game in Yellowstone this summer then.

    Its a more neutral film. I like it. I've found that its rather easy to expose if you avoid back lighting and uneven lighting. Have fun.

    Actually, I have to say that I feel that Sensia is the best film produced by Fuji.

    A great film, and one of my favorites for mid day shooting. Sensia used to be the same as Astia. I don't know if this still holds true.

    Sensia has rather wide exposure latitude for a slide film. I have not experienced blocked up shadows or blown highlights with it, and it tolerates overexposure more easily than Provia or Velvia.

    It's a favorite film for crossprocessing, judging by by how many xpro Sensia images that are found on Flickr. I prefer shooting and developing it as transparency film.

    Where did you find it for sale? I knew Ritz camera filed for bankruptcy but I just called my closest Wolf camera and asked them if any of their film was on sale and they said no.
    f/22 and be there.

    I can get a roll of Kodachrome 64 cheaper locally than what my local Ritz wants for a roll of Sensia 100. No wonder they are going out of business!

    Lucky, when I went in to a Ritz camera store a couple weeks ago they wanted $20 for a roll of elite-chrome. The guy behind then found out that is was expired. Instead of selling it to me for a lower price, he decided to return it to Kodak. At my local camera store they give me the film for free if it is expired.
