I found this film while walking through the history of Fujifilm exhibit at their corporate headquarters. I never heard of it and was wondering, has anyone ever shot with this film?
So it's an exhibit in the history of film at Fujifilm and not something presently available? Was it available only in Japan or for a narrow Asian market and nowhere else? Personally I have never heard of Fortia transparency, but the colours appear pleasing enough to want to take it for a spin. I am heading to Japan in February (Osaka) and will likely seek out Fujifilm's corporate HQ for a look.
If you look at the OP's photo, there was Fortia and Fortia SP. I believe SP was even more saturated than regular-strength Fortia (and/or especially for cherry blossoms) but I'm not 100% sure.
The attached photo was shot with an uncoated Cooke Triplet this summer.
Is your example from Fortia or Fortia SP?
Funny this was brought up.. processed a roll of Fuji Fortia SP for someone a few days ago.. it must have been stored perfectly, as it was like new. Looked fairly normal (no funky tones or colour casts) just with really intense colour on a light table.
