I saw somebody else here posting with a K5 + a medium format lens, so I thought I'd give it a shot with my combo.

I loaded the 645N with Velvia 50 to try out the newly acquired A 35/3.5, although some of these were shot with the 55mm and 75mm as well.
Wow! Makes me want to shoot slide film!

Pentax 67, 105/2.4, Portra 160. Accidentally shot the leader but it came out kind of cool.

I'm itching to shoot some slide film although it'll be tough to find anywhere to process it around here, plus it's reputed to be hard to scan. I have a couple of rolls of slightly expired Velvia that I got cheap. I have to say though, I like the look of the Kodak slide film more, so maybe I should grab a few rolls before it's all gone.

I think I can still get E100G and E100VS around here - can anyone tell me what difference there is between the two? Looking at a few googled images the VS seems to have stronger colours.

Wondering if someone could answer a question for me? I just purchased a set of extension tubes (10mm, 21mm, and 55mm) for my Hasselblad 500cm. Question is what type of adjustment I should make in terms of exposure? I have seen a few postings online but nothing concrete or specific to medium format. I have the 60mm f/3.5, 80mm f/2.8 and 150mm f/4.....does it matter what the starting focal length is or what the total focal length is including tube(s)? Any input is much appreciated.

I have the 16 and 32. Here is a link with a not so easy to use chart. I don't see your 10, 21 and 55 in there though. Are they Hasselblad ext tubes? With negative film you have a fair amount of latitude for the shorter ones.

Heed the warning and never remove the lens and tubes together!

The E100VS had more vivid colours than the E100G & E100GX versions and less achievability.

The E100GX was in the middle with a moderate enhancement of colours, but a warm balance.

The E100G was the most neutral balance, with the best achievability and like the E100GX a moderate enhancement of colours.

I have used all three and like the E100G the best, which is the closest to Kodachrome.

There was also an E200 which I never tried.

Adorama still has the E100G in 120, I just ordered 15 rolls.

I have also tried the various Fuji slide films and always liked Kodak better.

Many thanks for the info, I hadn't heard of the GX version, so I suppose it's long gone. What's "achievability"?

Achievability is that a slide colours will not fade if properly stored. E100G & GX are rated for 80 years.

Yes the GX version was the first to be discontinued a couple years ago.

Surely 'archivability'?

Woops I got fooled by the "spell checker" again!

Yep I'm referring to archivability....

Thanks, Phil.

Thanks for the link. Yes, mine are Hasselblad brand tubes, and while I don't see them listed in the chart on the link you sent, it seems like I could get pretty close. From what I can tell, adding the 10mm tube should make much difference, the 21mm tube maybe about a 1/2 stop of light, and for the 55mm about 1 stop light light. I don't think I will be combining tubes just yet as I would like to get the feel for them first....plus not sure I need to get that close.

If anyone does come across a chart similar to this that include the 10,21,55 I would love to see it. Thanks!
