heading fo Scotland on monday

So I leave for Scotland Monday and I'm packing the 67 for shooting landscapes, but Ive been tossing around between what to get film wise when i get there should I pick up some velvia 100 or 100f considering the the abundance of green rolling hills and overcast weather....

any votes?

I'm sure Andy will be able to answer that one, along with others in Ireland. You're buying film over there!!!!! Me thinks it's cheaper on this side of the pond.

Avoid the 'F' Velvia; I haven't heard much good about it, although I have not tried it. You can't go wrong with 100 Velva.

Can ya bring me a haggis and a bottle of Irn Bru back?

The poll is flawed. There's no Velvia 50 .

And it will be cheaper buying film in the States.

LOL, well 50 is not exactly easy to order or at least in multi packs. Thought about buying here, but if i go to calumet Glasgow i will end up spending about 15-20 more than ordering us, and some of that will be made up in the lack of shipping costs. its like 15 pounds for 5 packs of 120 over there. so i figured the convenience of not traveling and pre-ordering was worth that. As far as 100F goes i understand its supposed to be better with green???? hence the debate and reason for the poll.

Apparently, Fuji toned down the reds, possibly a doomed attempt to make it more of a more all-purpose film.

Still, it destroys skin tones.
