Next Film Test: Fuji Velvia 50 vs. Kodak E100VS, Medium Format 120

Because of the uncertainty of Kodak's future and the recent announcement that they will discontinue E-6 Film, it is obviuosly time to run another film test.  I prefer color transparency film to print film.  So Here we go:

Fuji Velvia 50 vs. Kodak E100VS, medium format (120).  I have chosen medium format, because ISO 50 requires a tripod under most circumstances.  It's doubtful that I would really be inclined to carry a tripod around for my 35mm.  Kind of defeats the purpose of traveling light........So in the near future expect a Fuji Provia 100/400 test against the now extinct E100VS (you can still buy it, but the price has gone up significantly).

As the spring flowers bloom the tests will proceed.


  1. Velvia is nice film. I used to shoot quite a bit of it, but still preferred Kodak films whether print or transparency.

    As far as a tripod; think of Ansel Adams. He used to lug that big 8x10 view camera and tripod of his all over the place, and not always in / on his vehicle.

    1. Here's a twist on Kodak Products:


      My film test has 5 more shot to go. I should be taking the film in for developing by Monday.
