    Shooting Velvia

    Do you use Warm up filters Color Correction filters for long exposure with Velvia, or that something that you now correct for at scanning.

    Velvia 100 >2 mins - 2.5M

    Velvia 50 1-4secs - 5M
    5-8secs - 7.5M
    9-16secs - 10M
    17-32secs - 12.5M
    >32secs - not recommended

    Velvia 100F >1min - 2.5B

    All of these and more can be found in the datasheets on Fuji's site http://www.fujifilm.co.uk/professional/films.html

    Re: Shooting Velvia

    I do carry a warm up filter to use with Velvia on long exposures (85C off the top of my head?) but don't tend to use it very often. I have also often exposed Velvia 50 for more than 32s without any noticeable ill effects. My suspicion is that the Fuji tables were created for studio photographers for whom accurate colour was essential. In the landscape, which is where I (and I suspect most others) use Velvia, it is much less critical.

    If you are scanning then rather than worrying about the potential colour shift I'd start by concentrating on the reciprocity corrections - there is little point in the colour correction filter if the image is dramatically under exposed!

    I made my life a whole lot easier and get better results by no longer using Velvia. Aaahhhh.........

    I shoot only Velvia (at least in LF), and I don't own any of those filters. I tend to agree with David.

    I recall one particular exposure, about a minute on Velvia 50, and while the transparency surely had a noticeable greenish cast, it was easily removed after scanning (in fact already the auto-preview in Vuescan recognized and eliminated the cast).

    On rare occasion, I use an 81C filter with Velvia, but I always take one shot of the same scene without the filter too.

    Re: Shooting Velvia

    Does one really expect to get accurate color with Velvia? I recently used some 100f as my first Velvia experience. Interesting film. Got some great fall colors, but felt the overall effect was a little garish.

    But these days, it all depends on how it scans. Akin to the original question posed in this thread, I'd be curious to know what others have experienced in scanning this film.

    At shooting. But, since I only use Velvia 100, Whether or not you use a 2.5M is really not that important
