two shots from my first roll of Fuji Velvia 50. Not impressed with the how the scans turned out so it looks like I'm in the market for a Side projector.
So I can get the full slide experience.





And a shot from my Kodak Reflex loaded with Fuji Provia 100

What model Kodak Reflex do you have? They are expensive to fix, so I just use my other Retinas instead. Rather than asking for trouble with my S which seems in fine shape. They are just too complicated for reliable use.
Are you shooting with wide aperture? There is a place for shallow depth of field, but other times it just makes the whole picture seem out of focus, when one part is in focus but the majority is not.

It is the TLR Kodak made in the 40s. As for depth of field. I had to shoot with a low f-stop Due to it being a cloudy day and having 100 iso film.

RVP50 can be *very* difficult to scan generally. Were those lab scans or done at home?

Ran some different slide films through my Flexaret V. Of them, only the Velvia 50 turned out in a manner that I'd call "as expected." Something happened with the Provia—probably mis-metering on my part—and most of the frames were overexposed. As for the Rollei CR 200, well, very yellow is the phrase I'd use to describe them.

(Anyone else shot CR 200? Is that to be expected?)

They look nice, clear and crisp to me.

The reds look good. Digital often blows them.
