Watch your shadows
The film is reasonably priced with good availability. Images in bright daylight or with flash are crisp and colorful, but this emulsion’s mucky green cast is no good for cloudy or shadowy conditions, unless mucky green is what you’re after. If you must shoot when it’s cloudy, don’t forget your warming filter!
My favorite Fuji
I’m a huge fan of the traditional “Fuji” look, so I’ve tried and shot a lot of their film, and this is hands down my favorite! In my experience, C200 gives you the Fuji greens and reds in heaps, along with a lower grain and clearer image than Superia has given me. The only downside is that it is only 200 speed, so your options will get more limited in lower lighting conditions.
Great film stock for low price!
This film did exceptionally well for skin tones and natures shots, it’s relatively inexpensive and can be found in lots of places like Walmart.
best budget film
i really love the tones, the way the reds appear on the cold tones… Way better than colorplus or gold (at least for me!)
Great for nature/landscapes
This film stock seems to prefer colder tones like green and blue, which makes it great for outdoor shooting (unless you live in the desert). I shot it during a trip to a local national park with changing weather, but I really enjoyed the results in the end.
Very cheap and good for beginner level. If you like a cold look to the pictures, this is it.
Don’t be bothered to shoot sunset pics or sunny photos with this. It loves a cloudy day and muted light as far as I can tell. The sharpness isn’t that good, but it is decent for the price. I prefer the Colorplus, but I still managed to shoot some of my favs on this film in cloudy conditions
nice and cheap
I’m from indonesia and this film cost about 60.000 rupiah. This film produced nice cold and slightly greenish photos
better when pushed
I’ve been using this stock ever since I’ve get a hold of it. at first the color seem a bit dull and lacking in contrast, however if you pushed it one stop the saturation will greatly increase along with contrast. Gives it a more ektar look and in general a warmer tone. I’d pick this over ColorPlus everyday.
Nice & Cheap
I just like this film because it doesn’t cost that much to shoot around for a hobbyist like me. It’s one of the cheapest film sold in my (and probably a lot of other) country/-ies. Although I don’t really understand fully about the grains and other technical stuffs about film, I personally like the simple colors the Fujicolor C200 gives. Also I’ve accidentally went through 4-5 x-ray scans with a roll of this film some time ago and it held out pretty well (I don’t know if this review is valid enough though). Regardless, it’s a good budget film IMO.
Had to learn to appreciate this one, as it’s coldness compared to colorplus bothered me at first. I’d highly recommend trying both of these in order to learn looking at subjects from different perspectives. Would not recommend pushing c200 though, as it loses both saturation and beauty of it’s colours.
Very nice tonality
Super cheap yet delivers very nice image and color tonality, also good exposure latitude.
I use it most of the time.
Really fun to shoot just because it’s so affordable. at less than $5 USD for a roll, it’s super affordable to shoot. I only wish it were available in 120. Sizeable but pleasing grain, what more can you expect from a budget film.
