    I had heard that Fuji revised Superia/Press 400 (CH) and
    the new film was in packaging with a rounded backing card.
    So I bought a 4-pack, thinking it's the new stuff. After
    developing, negatives are coded CH-7 as before, batch U61A.

    Skin tones seem smoother than what I remember, but reds
    are overproduced as before, which accentuates blemishes.
    Color is good, with accurate purples in both sun and shade,
    although red seems a tad muddy. Overall it looks a lot like
    it used to, when I got a good batch (they varied a lot).

    Is this the new emulsion, and if so, why is it still CH-7?
