    I quite like it, it's grain is more pronounced than say NPH 400 but the colours are quite nice if a little contrasty. I understand why some may not like skin tones especially if they use Reala. I took this shot on out of date stock late in the day (warm yellow light)

    I like it, but I have noticed some ruddiness in skin tones on occasion, but I don't know if this is an issue with the lab and not the film, or the camera, or the lens, or the lighting. The two shots below were taken with rolls from the same batch of Xtra 400:

    The first shot was taken with a Yashica G, the second with a Yashica FX-3 with an ML 50mm 1:1.9 lens. The light was very similar in both shots. While still a little on the "warm" side, I think that overall, the skin tones in the first shot are more natural than in the second. But I don't see any excessive graininess in either shot.

    It works for me, but I do have a good lab.

    I shoot a lot of it in 35mm and shot a 5 pack of it in 120. It's a pretty nice film like most people have said. I have noticed that skin tones do look a little "jagged" (probably from the 400 speed, similar to Kodak BW400CN). It's a nice film, nice and contrasty with good tonality. I prefer the 400 speed personally due to stopping the lens down to zone focus while keeping a sufficiently high enough shutter speed since I shoot a lot of 35mm street.

    Funny but I've never seen Superia 400 sold in 120 rolls in N. America. Pro400H but not Superia.

    Curious where it's coming from since it's apparently not available thru Fuji in the US or Canada.
