    ...and it gets madder if you add a polariser...

    Both are pretty much as they came off the scanner. In point of fact, the one of the locks has richer colour and detail in the rusty lock than the scanner was able to render!
     
  2. This is 50, although it's the old emulsion rather than the new.

    I am always amazed at the colors Velvia produces. Can't wait to get my hands on some 120 Velvia 50!
     
  4. B&H shows the new Velvia 50 as "coming soon" but only has listings for 220 rolls; I don't think I still have a 220 holder so I hope some 120 is in the works as well.

    i through my first roll of velvia 100 in the F4 today, and i'm pretty interested to see how it turns out... the color from yours is just amazing
     
  7. I have 5 rolls in my freezer - they're earmarked for my Rolliecord II if the weather ever gets better...

    I dunno - I have a hard time getting behind color film.
     
  13. Thanks everyone.

    Chris - it's interesting you say that, I think it's very much a particular way of thinking, shooting colour, and I find that it can be much harder to get something aesthetically pleasing from it.

    It doesn't help to be colorblind either... :Glasses:

    Actually I think it DOES help, with monochrome photography.
