Here are a few more Velvia 50 images...I have noticed ''allot'' of vignetting and what is odd, is that
I have used this combo through a 1/2 dozen rolls and only with this velvia did it show up..Any Ideas

@Javier: First though "wait a moment... these look like velvia... doesn't he usually use just cheap colour negative?!..." then I checked the description, seems you have found velvia now also. Good pics! I like the middle one most because of the strong green and blue colours and simple composition.

Colors are very nice. Time to find a "cheap" source of Velvia.

Cheers,

Luc

I know it is still CAd $15 at my local shop.
Does anybody knows the difference between the new Velvia 100 and the old Velvia 100?

Cheers,

Luc

Thanks Jim, I am slowly growing out of my cheap 99 cents film.

Here are few more velvia 50 images. I like over saturated pictures, though this might be a bit strong for people film.
Still, I like it overall. I am thinking that this film might behave better shooting it slightly underexposed, perhaps 1/3 stop?

Hello Javier,

Thank you very much for the offer - very much appreciated
I just pull the trigger on a box (20 rolls) of the "new" Velvia 100 from a Canadian EBay seller with a good rating at around the same price. If my colors do not look like yours, I will be complaining

I have more or less settled to shoot only:
1) slide for color and only 100 ISO or less if available > Velvia
2) AGFA APX 100 for B&W daylight - I just ordered a box (20)
3) TMax400 or Delta400 or TriX400 for street
I will be finishing my other films as I go but will likely stuck to these for new purchases.

Cheers,

Luc

Yep, I know what you mean.
I have so much film in the fridge right now, but not anything I want to shoot at the moment. I am really getting hooked on the velvia 50 but do think the 100 would be better as it is a little bit faster.

Javier, seeing you shooting with velvia sort of gives me an inkling of why Ken Rockwell has a warming 81A filter perma-mounted for all his film shots. But this latest batch of yours is nice, crisp and vibrant. It might be worth it to play around with filters and see how it comes out if you find them too blue.

First shots from my first film camera:

(Pentax MZ-7, FA 50mm f/1.4, Tri-X 400, Hong Kong)









I shot a roll of T-Max 400 and Neopan 400 directly afterward to get a sense of the character of each. I definitely liked Tri-X best and will continue to use it.

Nice and crisp with really good exposure.
I like them.

More photos from the corner

I shoot mostly in my neck of the wood as between my dog and my wife it is not always possible to just go out and shoot.









Various subjects as you can see.
All Ilford FP4 Plus shoot with MX and M-28 / M-50 I don't remember which.

Cheers,

Luc

Thank you. Coming from you this is a great compliment. I will be taking your advice and trying different filters. I have a red, yellow and a polarizer. Suggestions one where to start?
