    Fujichrome Provia 400X Professional Slide Film - Press Release

    FUJIFILM INTRODUCES FUJICHROME PROVIA 400X PROFESSIONAL

    New Film Features Improved Color Saturation and Image Stability, Finer Grain

    Valhalla, NY, February 14, 2006 - Fuji Photo Film U.S.A., Inc. announces the introduction of Fujichrome Provia 400X Professional film at the PMA 2006 Annual Convention and Trade Show. The new high-speed color reversal film delivers new levels of color saturation, ultra-fine grain, rich tone reproduction and improved color image stability. Fujichrome Provia 400X features Epitaxial Sigma Crystal Technology for ultra-fine grain (RMS: 11) along with new generation couplers and new color correction technology for excellent performance and image stability. The new film will replace Fujichrome Provia 400F, a favorite among professionals for commercial and fashion photography.

    "Fujichrome Provia Professional films are highly regarded among professional photographers for their versatility and quality," said Christian Fridholm, Director of Marketing, Professional Films, Fuji Photo Film U.S.A., Inc. "We 're proud to demonstrate our commitment to photographers by delivering technological and performance improvements in our new Fujichrome Provia 400X Professional film."

    Brilliant color reproduction-Fujichrome Provia 400X Professional provides new levels of color saturation in ISO 400 class films.

    Ultra-fine grain-Fujichrome Provia 400X Professional provides exceptionally fine grain for a 400 speed color reversal film (RMS: 11).

    Rich tone reproduction-Fujichrome Provia 400X Professional produces smooth and continuous gradation from highlights to shadows, providing pleasing skin tone reproduction.

    Improved color image stability-Fujichrome Provia 400X incorporates new-generation color couplers for significantly improved long-term color image stability (anti-fading characteristics) compared to current 400 speed color reversal films.

    Provia 400F was easily the best ISO200 or higher slide film out there. I took some shots with it and Provia 100F in bright sunlight and had a really hard time telling them apart. Hard to imagine that they improved on 400F, but I still have a film body and will have to try it.

    With my limited film experiance, I have become a big fan of Provia 400F, other than the price. I can't wait to give this new version a try.

    I am surprised that none has shown up on eBay yet, somone in Japan would probably make a killing there from somone over here, silly enough to pay though the nose for it!
