Fuji Slide Film
Posted 05 January 2003 - 06:05 PM
In reference to Fuji slide film, does anyone have experience with Sensia and if so what would be differences in quality (not withstanding the different ASA) between shooting Velvia and Sensia for Macro??
Currently I am using Velvia (for my first 6 dives with my new camera anyway) and am very impressed with the results but Sensia is half the price of Velvia - and that means big bucks in the long run.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Velvia has a much finer grain and has much better colour saturation and very good blacks. Provia too has very good blues suited to UW but is more expensive than Velvia. For general WA Sensia is fine, but doesn't print as good.
They are bringing out a 100ASA version of Velvia this year too.
If Fuji is too expensive try Kodak's 25 & 64 ASA slide film and the Kodak extra colour 100 ASA stock.
This is what I shot the Manado pictures with.

The 100 looks great in Ca waters and easily pushes to 200.
