Fuji Superia: ISO400 or 800?

Hello Pixalo, sorry it's been a while

Going interrailing soon and don't want to lug or risk theft of the D300 and various kit so taking the trusty AE1 (still going Angela!). I'd like to shoot in colour, was planning on Superia 400, but noticed they've brought out an ISO800 version...I'll be using 1.8 and 2.8 lenses only, so 400 should be fine, just thought I'd get consensus...

Thankee

Jack

Unless you are going to be shooting action or low light I think the 400 will be fine. Kodachrome used to be ASA25......

Re: Fuji Superia: ISO400 or 800?

Just returned from a holiday in Czech republic and used superia 400 for low light and Kodak Ektar 100 for good light.

I found the superia is good enough for most low light conditions particularily with fast lenses f2.8 being the slowest and in good light Ektar is amazing.

I've not used superia 800 but would probably be good for sports and action stuff.

I would take a range and choose your film on light conditions and what type of photgraphy your doing.
