Provia is a brandname for a pair of daylight-balanced color reversal films (slide film) produced by the Japanese film company Fujifilm. It is available in two speeds: 100/21° marketed as Fujichrome Provia 100F Professional [RDP III], and 400/27° marketed as Fujichrome Provia 400X Professional [RXP].
Provia 100F [RDP III] was developed to replace Provia 100 [RDP II] and Provia 400X [RXP] was developed to replace Provia 400F [RHP III], improving on colour image storage permanence and colour fading resistance. Provia has less saturated colors and contrast compared to Velvia.
Neither film requires reciprocity compensation between 1/4000 sec and one minute, with Provia 100F [RDP III] able to last up to two minutes. These longer times make the films particularly suitable for multiple exposures.
In Popular Culture
Provia 100F is featured in the opening to the American situation comedy Arrested Development, where its developed medium format edge is used to evoke family portraits. Note, however, that some images with this frame are monochrome, which, while possible to obtain using E-6 reversal film, is not recommended.
