Field notes – Fuji Provia 100F – RDPIII
Following on from my review of Fuji Provia 100F (RDP III), here’s our quick reference for (nearly) everyone’s favourite slide film.
Here’s what Fuji have to say:
FUJICHROME PROVIA 100F Professional [RDP III] is an ultra-high-quality, daylight-type ISO 100-color reversal film.
With the finest grain (an RMS granularity value of 8) among ISO 100 color reversal films and an extremely high sharpness, it captures details with unprecedented clarity, while providing rich gradation, vivid and faithful color reproduction, and well-controlled gradation balance.
These characteristics make it an ideal choice for a wide range of subject matter, from product and outdoor photography to fashion work and portraiture.
|Type||Slide (Color Reversal)|
|Exposure latitude||-1/2 to +2 stops|
|Push processing||2 stops|
|Cross processing||Greens and blues|
What’s it like (the quick version)?
Taken from the review:
Put simply, Provia 100F is all fine grain, great color reproduction, nice contrast and rich tones. It’s a daylight color slide film that works well indoors and it pushes well, and handles both highlights and shadow in a very pleasing way. All in all, a rather and versatile stock.
If you shoot portraits, this film will give you great skin tones. Shoot landscapes and you get lovely, rich greens and blue skies. Shoot at golden hour and you’ll be rewarded with beautiful gold and amber highlights.
