Fujifilm Velvia 50 is one of the world's best slide films with colours that explode from your photograph, high contrast and rich textures. Landscapes will look alive, sunsets will show more colours than you thought possible, and street life will be exciting and vivid.
Note that portraits taken with Velvia 50 will often look unflattering due to a red tint on skin tones, so keep your 35mm camera aimed squarely at life outside!

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.

Payment & Security
i used to love this stuff back when it was more affordable. Vibrant colours is what it’s all about, and perfect for landscapes.
If you love colour and contrast then Fuji Velvia 50 is simply the best there is. Highly saturated with high contrast Velvia 50 is perfect for standout landscapes to catch the eye, but is less suitable for architectural shots and unsuitable for portraits. Velvia 50 is pricey and difficult to get hold of but worth every penny when you find some of it.
However, exposure needs to be spot on so it suits high-end cameras with accurate light meters best, and photographers who take the time to meter with hand-held exposure meters. Velvia 50 also freezes well, and I am still using 120 stock that I bought in 2008.
This is by far and away my favourite film stock. It’s stupidly expensive and doesn’t like high contrast lighting situations and the skin tones are awful but... the colours and fine grain and overall character of the images that you can make if you get the exposure right are sublime. If I could afford it, I would shoot nothing else. If you have never used it then get some (if you can) and try it out. The low iso means that you might need a tripod and you’re best off bracketing exposures for important shots.
My guilty secret is that I mostly use Velvia point and shoot. I know that’s in direct contradiction to the good advice I just gave but, if you have a decent camera it works very well (the attached photos were taken using a Pentax Espoo mini)
Brilliant colours, contrast and sharpness. What else can you say?
This is everything a reversal film should be: low grain, intense colour without looking too contrasty. The slides look superb as soon as you lay them on a light boa. Get the best by projecting them: magical! The 50iso rating seems perfect when using a "proper" film camera ( ie one from the golden days of the 60s or 70s!)
