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.

When I want to use a colour film and have no specific idea of what or where I’ll be shooting, I grab X-tra 400. This is because it’s such a versatile film stock, in my opinion 400 is the best default ISO as it can deal with most lighting situations with plenty of grace. I have used this in everything from blinding sun right through to the pitch dark and I’m always pleased with the results.
Many people mention a greenish tint to this film, I personally haven’t experienced it that much with my scans but I would say the colours are subdued. Not to the extent where they aren’t lively but they don’t pop out as much as on some other brands. I personally like this but that just me, it always captures plenty of detail and offers some very nice grain in all the right ways.
It’s brilliant for landscapes, general shots and street. It’s not my favourite for portraits due to the softer colours but I have had some really nice results.
I definitely would recommend this film to people who have just mastered the basics and seasoned pros alike, it always gets the shot. So long as you take the lens cap off your rangefinder!
I had read some of the other reviews that mentioned this film having a green tint, but I did not expect it to be so intense and overwhelming. A lot of the colours became washed out by the strong green. This was fine, and almost nice for photos taken in wooded areas with lots of trees, and it added a moodiness to landscape shots, but I'm extremely disappointed with how it made everything else look. Skin tones had a murky green tinge to them, making it terrible for portraits, and I took some photos of what was a beautiful orange/pink sunset, only to find that the film had made it look like I had taken a photo of a cloudy overcast grey sky. I found the film to also be very grainy. I would only recommend this if you're going to take photos of landscapes or nature shots.
Amazing colour performance, sometimes they tend to cast more green on the image giving them an unique look.
It is a great all-rounder with higher sensitivity. It has the distinct look with a slight green cast in shadows and slightly pinkish (caucasian) skin tones. The effect is pronounced on photos taken on an overcast day or when underexposed. Cooler than Kodak Ultramax 400 so in my opinion it is a perfect film for capturing winter or more moody scenes.
