    Superia 1600 question?

    If I shoot a roll of Fuji Superia 1600 does the drug store need to know anything special to process the film? Just plain old C-41?

    it's regular c-41, so you're all good, assuming the people at the photo lab know what they're doing

    BTW, did you find your superia 1600 in a drug store or chain store? I've never found anything faster than 800 anywhere around here. I've been wanting to grab a few rolls so I wouldnt have to push my 800 speed rolls to 1600 or 3200 in low-light situations.

    No, I bought this last year from Photo Barn in Lilburn, GA. They were clearing out some Fuji film because they are no longer going to carry Fuji. I got it for $1 a roll.

    it's becoming expensive in Belgium, some 6 to 7€, but I love it and I want to keep demand on Fuji because they killed Neopan 1600 because of lack of demand, d.mn.d; they say...

    I overexpose 1/2 to 1 stop, it's already flat enough

    But if you overexpose it 1 stop then you could just shoot Superia 800 couldn't you? Though some say to shoot Superia 800 at 560 or 400, the same 1/2 to 1 over, but then you could just shoot Superia 400 at box speed... Is any of this stuff really good enough to shoot at box speed without getting flat yucky color and bad grain???

    There are just too many variables in C-41 processing now to take full advantage of print films' versatility. I shot lots of Fuji NPZ at kendo meets under crappy gym lights and rated it at 1600 knowing I could get a consistent 1-stop push with dependable results from my lab--when they ran a rock-solid C-41 line. Superia 1600 really does benefit from at least 1/3 stop over-exposure, if anything to buy a little cushion from so-so processing. I found 1600 to be a bit lifeless and grainy at box speed.

    Yes sadly my local labs now just run C41 through a few times a week and it is difficult to get good results. Digital scan and print of course... Should really do it myself like the B&W I do but I don't generally shoot enough color to make it worthwhile. I do have a few pro packs of Fujicolor, Portra and Solaris so I probably could use up a small kit right now.
