Fujifilm add high performance Provia 400F to their range -
Designed for low-light and fast-action photography, Fujichrome Provia 400F Professional is an ISO400-speed daylight-type colour reversal film and has caused a restructure of films on offer from Fujifilm Professional. Its push processing characteristics have resulted in Fujifilm discontinuing Fujichrome Provia 1600, Fujichrome RMS 100/1000 and Fujichrome Provia 400 (RDP II) films.
It is suited for sports, photojournalism, fashion and stage performance photography as well as landscape, nature and other outdoor photography which may involve working in low-light conditions.
Fujichrome Provia 400F can be pushed +3 stops to EI 3200 with minimal colour change and gradation. Under the right conditions, and depending on the subject, Fujichrome Provia 400F may be pushed +3 1/2 stops to EI 4800. The grain structure of Fujichrome Provia 400F is the equivalent of an ISO200 emulsion, making it ideal for enlargements and allows the use of smaller format cameras. Fujichrome Provia 400F Professional film is available in 120 (single roll) 120 (pro pack) and in 135-36 (single roll).
"Fujichrome Provia 400F has a grain structure comparable to good ISO200 films, making it ideal for photographers who require high quality pictures but occasionally need the sensitivity of an ISO400 film. As well as fine grain, Provia 400F also gives neutral colour reproduction along with a wide tonal scale. This is the perfect film for action and low-light photography."
"Fujichrome Provia 400F (RHP III) won the Best Colour Film award. The TIPA panel cited the film's Yellow Filter Dye technology, which gives extremely accurate colour rendering at the standard ISO400 rating, or when push processed by up to two stops. The film's high tolerance to push processing is enhanced by Fujifilm's Super-fine Sigma Crystal technology, which gives Provia 400F a grain structure normally expected in an ISO100 film, with little deterioration at higher speed ratings."
