    I've never tried the 120 on this but have used the 35mm version quite a lot and I like it.

    I have plenty of Portra 400 and Pro 400H (even in 220) but I've never tried the X-TRA 400 before. Just giving it a test run.

    Last time I saw Superia in 120 was about 10 years ago and it was ISO100--gawdawful saturation and contrast that rendered everything in blocked-up Pokemon-like color.

    Fuji Superia 400 is a nice cheap C-41 film, it is what it is.

    I would not do anything critical with this film, that's what Fuji Pro 400H and Kodak Portra 160 and 400 are for, especially if people are involved. I still find Superia 400 fun to shoot with, just rate it down to 250 ISO and off you go.

    It is a good general purpose film which I have used. My preference is Kodak Portra films but if I needed to I would use Superia 400. I did not care for the Fuji 800 speed film.

    Always get great results with Superia 200. Find 400 skin tones scary pink, almost Velvia-like. It's getting too pricey for what it delivers.

    In the UK, 35mm Fuji 400 is going for £1.48 at a supermarket called Morrisons.

    I should shoot more with some Superia 200. What do you rate it at?

    Thing is B&H sell Superia 400 and 200 for dirt cheap, way cheaper than what you pay for at Shoppers Drug Mart.

    Like you, I'm unhappy with Fuji Superia pricing around the GTA. It's rarely a bargain now unless you can snag it when Shopper's has their "Life" Superia 200/400 on sale. Otherwise, it's not worth 5-6 bucks/24.

    Agree, it's waaay cheaper from B&H and worth it. Have lots of 200 on hand, so I'm set. It's reasonably priced dev/print service around the GTA that's a royal pain now.

    Box speed for Superia 200. I prefer the tamer contrast/saturation+better skin tones compared to 400. YMMV, as always.

    BTW, try to make it to the next GTA/Toronto APUG meet-up. Hope to run another this month, another in August.
