But that does not mean that film photography has remained at a standstill. Fujifilm has continually been improving the quality of its products, even in their consumer lines. I was on a shoot in the San Francisco Bay Area this past fall, and ran out of Kodak Ektar 100 print film, so I bought a 4-pack of the only film the Safeway in Petaluma carried.
I popped it into my Hasselblad Xpan, and hoped for the best. But little did I realize I would get the best. The tonal range, color fidelity, and saturation easily match Fuji's NPS-160 professional film of just fifteen years ago. A most pleasant surprise, and a big thanks to Fujifilm!
