Fujifilm Venus 800 Film 35mm Colour ISO 800
Another Japanese import - the Venus 800 is Fuji's most light-sensitive colour film, designed to cope in situations with little light. Therefore a fantastic winter film! It is a professional-grade film so delivers excellent sharpness, contrast and colours in the final image. An excellent film for indoor and evening photography.

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.

Good contrast and faithful saturation. The deeper blue sky is more down to the polarisation effect with your position to the sun overhead.No polarising filter was used.
A Fuji marketing chart had Venus 800 as a high contrast low saturation film.Left on this quadrant type chart was low saturation and right high saturation. Up on this chart was high contrast and down low contrast. Venus 800 sat high left but below Fuji premium 400 in terms of contrast, which itself sat below the now/latest Fuji unobtainium Natura 1600.
In terms of saturation Premium 400 on this chart sat to the right of Venus 800 meaning higher saturation, yet Premium is marketed cheaper by Fuji. A quick click through Analogue Wonderland's trusted description of Premium 400 has the chart agreeing with this site. If you follow the chart logically high right is where Fujichrome would sit, high contrast high saturation (or possibly off the chart!). Point being Premium 400 sits closer to Fujichrome than Venus 800 at a lower price point.
Having said all this Venus 800 is a safe pair of hands so to speak, giving you an honest representation in terms of colour fidelity during daytime shooting. Given a low light situation i'm sure Fuji Venus 800 would give a stellar performance going by its daylight response.Until i shoot this film in low light as intended, i'll give this film a punchy 3 stars.
Heard some great reviews of this, particularly in low-light so thought I'd give it a go. It has all the usual Fuji colour palatte(colder feel, heavy on the greens/blues) and a truly unique look(the best shots on my first roll had a bit of a synthwave/vaporwave aesthetic/colour scheme). However, the shots I got on my first roll of it came out just a little too grainy for my liking, both in daylight and at night. As much as I love that Fuji are still making this and REALLY wanted to like this film more, I've used Superia X-Tra 400 since and had much better results for what I needed in all situations. Might revisit in future and see if I was just unlucky!
I accidentally shot this film in broad daylight and around sunset thinking I still had a 400 ASA film loaded. The resulting pictures were still pleasing with tones familiar to Fuji users.
I've bought some more to play with in actual low light. I'll post a follow up review once I've shot it again. Example pics of my accidental daylight shoot attached.
The film performs better in good light than I expected, and very well in low light. I struggled a bit to get consistency, but this is not down to the film this is down to me not having much experience with high speed film. Not a film I would recommend to beginners, but with the right know how you can definitely get some excellent results, I'll be sure to have a few more goes with this film, as I really like the natural colours, as they are not super saturated.
