So Provia is still available, and Velvia 100 is OK, too.
No more Velvia 100-F at all, and Velvia 50 in roll films only.
At least they're still making E-6.

Hope that's a joke ...
Otherwise I'll hang myself (metaphorically speaking)!
That's old news.
Actually that makes a lot of sense from both the manufacturing and users standpoint: Provia is unsaturated and Velvia 100 is the saturated version. Personally I prefer Provia as I do Kodak Porta 160.
I agree that it makes sense to dump the more saturated version (I also prefer Portra 160) because you can always add saturation in Photoshop. But it still makes me cringe everytime a popular LF film is discontinued....even if I never used it...
That's exactly what I feel ... Velvia 50 nails 100% the colors what I like ...
I also find it hard to replicate that.
Hmmm, the Velvia 100 seems to look different, more contrasty and I guess less magenta?!
Judging from Tims tests:
http://www.onlandscape.co.uk/2011/06...mparison-pt-3/ (100 seems to close up the shadows more, but perhaps it's just underexposed a bit)
http://www.onlandscape.co.uk/2011/02...arison-pt-two/ (here I don't observe the closing shadows)
Its always sad to see a film go that many people love.
