I ordered a 5-pack of Superia X-Tra 400 in 120 from Amazon - it was around US $20. I shot my first roll last weekend, and got the film back yesterday.
After sc**ning the whole roll, I'm fairly pleased with the results. It's certainly no Portra, but the colors look good - nice reds and greens. I was pleased with the way it handled one shot I took at dusk (I think a 1 second exposure), rendering the colors accurately. I'd say it's a good all-purpose consumer grade film. It doesn't seem as warm or saturated as Reala.
I'm one of the few who don't like Fujicolor 200. Superia 200 was a good film, but, you can't get it locally anymore. It's been replaced with a different film. Greenish cast, not much in the way of contrast, etc. I'll take Superia X-TRA 400 (and 800) over it anyday. I haven't done a scientific experiment yet, but it seems that the grain on Superia 400 is a little less noticeable than 400H. Will have to get a roll of 400H and run that through the F2AS while I run this current roll of Superia 400 through the F4s.
I wish Reala was still available for 35mm. Was a very nice film. Not as tight, grain-wise as the current Ektar 100, though.
