what was the best colour film you ever used? and if its still around where can you buy it?
Velvia. It´s an E6 film made by Fuji.
I think you can still get it.
Velvia is great, but I prefer Provia, which is also an E6 film. Both Velvia and Provia are readily available. Finding a lab to develop E6 might be a tad tougher however.
Velvia for saturation, E100G if I want more natural color.
Provia for me too.
I was going to say kodachrome 64, until I read "if it's still around".
Uhm.. they discontinued Kodachrome 25, but not 64.
I have 2 rolls on the way.
Well...Kodakchrome 64 sure was my favourite when I shot for myself. Most magazines I did stuff for just preferred the punch of Velvia. (In the days before digital took over)
Velvia without a doubt - I shoot almost 100% landscapes, so the sharpness, lack of grain and colour depth are perfect. I use Velvia 50 mostly, but the slow speed isn't a problem with a solid tripod, and can help introduce movement to an otherwise static shot
Do you get Velvia 50 on eBay or what?
I heard Fuji is going to start making it again.
Yeah, they are!
