Fuji is one of the most famous Japanese global brands - and along with Eastman Kodak - dominated the film photography market for most of the 20th century. However the dawn of digital photography put significant strain on it's operations and it has restructured itself (and part-merged with Xerox) around a more diverse set of industries such as digital press, computer systems, and photocopying services. It's focus on traditional film has waned (giving rise to the nickname "FujiNOTfilm") - discontinuing several lines which has caused understandable upset among loyal users and planning to cut several more. However their creation and innovation of the Fuji Instax system (the most popular instant photography format today) means they will remain relevant to analogue photography for many years to come.

I bought this film in Tokyo , gave a nice exposure where C200 had failed me especially in low light conditions, the slight green tint lent an interesting aspect to the extreme low light shots.
It looked so beautiful in this low light setting, nice film to push as well
I bought a 3 pack of Fuji Xtra Superia 400 just to see what it was all about. Maybe it's my scanning or maybe it was something else, but I found it had a purplish cast to it on some, but not al of my images. That didn't dissuade me from using all three rolls in three different camera's with my Olympus A200 point and shoot getting the best results, when i got it right the colours really did pop so not an alltogether too disheartening experience. It's worth it for experimenting and looking for abstract images..
When I first started shooting film I got through quite a few rolls of this, mostly because of Fuji's reputation, but the more I shot of it the less I was immediately keen on my results compared to Kodak's ColorPlus, admittedly a very different film and much cheaper.
Shots with it have a fair amount of grain but not too much, and have a very particular look with the usual Fuji emphesis on greens and blues. I've had my some great results with it after dark however and it handles neon and streetlights surprisingly well.
When I first started shooting film, this was my go-to colour negative film: versatile with great exposure latitude and pretty consistent results. That said, there have been rumours about quality control when it comes to the emulsion and I have to say I had a couple of rolls that seemed to perform differently. A fair bit of grain too (as you'd expect from a 400-speed film like this) and prone to greeny/yellowish casts if you don't get it quite right metering at box speed.
All of this was more than tolerable when the film was ubiquitous and inexpensive (~2 years ago you could get three rolls for £12). Now the film is expensive (classic Fuji) for what it is and I'd recommend spending the same money on an alternative.
