best color print film for everything!

I love this film! The depth of color is amazing, and my prints have turned out gorgeous! My first experience with it turned out bright blue skyes and excellent skin tones with no filters, you do need to pay close attention to your exposure and subject lighting though. The grain quality is superb allowing you to enlarge to poster prints(I have gone up to 16x24 so far)and still have an excellent print. The speed will keep you from any action photography, unless you want to show motion in your s...

I love this film! The depth of color is amazing, and my prints have turned out gorgeous! My first experience with it turned out bright blue skyes and excellent skin tones with no filters, you do need to pay close attention to your exposure and subject lighting though. The grain quality is superb allowing you to enlarge to poster prints(I have gone up to 16x24 so far)and still have an excellent print. The speed will keep you from any action photography, unless you want to show motion in your shot. Above all I highly recommend this film to any enthusiasts or professionals who are interested in art prints and portrait photography in natural light settings.

Loses details. Narrow range.

I did not like Reala. I tried it based on Internet recommendations, but found it copies the one major flaw several other Fuji lines have: It cannot handle light/shadows in the same picture together. There is a very very fine range in which you can get a decent exposure. Too much light and it instantly blows out detail and fades it away. Too little (even in normal every-day shadows on a sunny day) and it consumes all detail in a nearly-black representation. The middle ground, the narrow band ...

I did not like Reala. I tried it based on Internet recommendations, but found it copies the one major flaw several other Fuji lines have: It cannot handle light/shadows in the same picture together. There is a very very fine range in which you can get a decent exposure. Too much light and it instantly blows out detail and fades it away. Too little (even in normal every-day shadows on a sunny day) and it consumes all detail in a nearly-black representation. The middle ground, the narrow band in which you can expose it and have it look nice, also looks under exposed and rather dull. In short, it cannot handle shadows, it cannot handle highlights, the properly exposed portions look a bit under exposed, and it doesn't play well with multiple lights/shades in the same composition. I shot a test roll of it, overexposing shots as well. Even with 1 stop over exposure it loses a noticable amount of red tint in wood, brick, buildings, faces, etc. Red goes out the window quickly. It does, I noticed, look very nice with a flash and diffuser. It looks nice on anything with a smooth consistent lighting (no highlights, little shadows). On the good photos, the colors look great and the film is crisp. It simply will lose half the photo in a shadow where other films will not. I will say the prints scans nicely. I am not looking for a scan-only film. My main focus is to have and share these prints. I don't want a film I have to photoshop every print and then reprint it. In short, Reala has some good qualities but doesn't have the right "good" qualities for my needs. I need to see detail in shadows. I don't want to lose details on faces due to hat brims casting shadows. I would not recommend to others. There are better options. I am an amateur and this is my honest opinion.

Fuji Reala

By

from Tallahassee  -  Pro Photographer

Have been using this film exclusively for over 10 years. Shot hundreds of architectural projects. Always faithful reproduction of colors. Will need to check your labs work for any shifts they introduce. Use a color chart to help them. Extremely fine grain can go to 4'x6' prints which are of acceptable quality. Was so apprehensive about continuance I just bought 30 rolls.

I love this film, it gives excellent color rendition. It's cheap and gives professional looking results. Matched with a sharp lens, the photographs come to life. I will always buy this film.
