    The film was refrigerated until the last 6 months (it would have been refrigerated almost the whole time if I hadn't forgotten to take it out of my backup camera bag:o).

    By the way, it was 220, shot at ISO 250 with a Mamiya 645 Pro and a 55mm f/2.8 N lens. The flash was a ceiling bounced Olympus T32 in auto mode, with high-tech () catchlight card.

    I like that 400H and 800Z print on almost the same filter pack, in fact, often the exact same filter pack. Makes life a little easier.

    Then we pick up a Hasselblad camera from the 1960s and make perfect pictures with it, and I doubt their modern lenses are noticeably better to the naked eye.
    Very true statement.

    Twenty or thirty years ago 400 I.S.O Colour neg film had grain like golf balls, and Sarah Moon shot the Pirelli calendar with Anscochrome 500 because of it's increadable grain for creative effect in those days Thomas. I have revised my ideas about using 400 ISO film today and am going to buy a stock of 400 H and a few rolls 800Z, because I'm a big fan of window light portraiture and these films will be ideal.

    Those sample pics look really nice. I've not used this film before but now I'm feeling inspired to try it. (It's funny--when I was a young'n, I had the impression that Fuji film was second-rate--maybe because I was mainly seeing the drugstore-quality film. But the products I've used in recent years have been really nice! Is it just me or are they really a lot better now?)

    What impresses me A.M. being a long time portrait enthusiast about these portrait films both Kodak and Fuji as clearly demonstrated on this shot is their ability to render beautiful accurate skin tones and strong vibrant colours and clean whites at the same time on the same film, I've been shooting colour film all my adult life, this is to me science fiction :o. I bought a five pack of 35mm Portra 400 VC last week to try but haven't used any yet, I'm looking forward to it now.

    You are really going to like the results with the 400VC. I've never shot this Fuji Pro 400H so I'll try some side by side one of these days. I've never shot the Portra 400NC either so I might as well throw that in there too.

    It is sadly ironic that films are "better" than they have ever been, yet they are fighting harder than they ever have just to exist at all. BUY FILM, people!

    Ain't that the truth 2F/2/F, I bought some Fuji 800Z last week even though I've never used a film so fast in my life because I read it's going to be discontinued and you have written how good it is.
