Superia is a brand of daylight balanced colour negative film produced by the Japanese company Fujifilm. It is available in 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1600 speeds. It is aimed at the point and shoot market but is also quite popular with enthusiasts.

Superia Reala is an ISO 100/21° speed portrait film aimed at professionals and enthusiasts, originally known as Fuji Reala.

After the first year of the Superia films being available in the United States, all Superia films inherited the 4th color layer technology used in Reala. However, as of 2008, it appears that that technology is used in only the 800 and 1600 ISO speed stocks, and that newer technology has integrated the benefits of the 4th color layer (better color rendition in mixed and fluorescent lighting) into the other three principal layers, thus eliminating the need for it.[citation needed]

Press is a professional film made by Fujifilm in 400 and 800 ISO speeds. It uses the same pair of emulsions as Superia at those speeds,[1] but has been specially handled (refrigerated) since the time of manufacture.[2]

All speeds of all films are available in 35 mm rolls. Superia 100 and 400, as well as Reala 100 are additionally available in the 120 format. Superia 200 is additionally available in the 110 format.
