Thread: Velvia 50

    Velvia 50

    Today, I got in 600 Fuji Velvia 4X5, some for me. Maybe if Fuji finds out there is no real demand to replace 50 with the new 100, they will keep it on the market. Remember when Kodak decided to replace Plus X and Tri X with Tmax films. 20 years or more later Plus X and Tri X are still on the market. Stock up on 50 just in case.
    Go to the Fuji web site and tell them you want Velvia 50 to remain. Those who want 100, that is fine, you already have it. As someone said in this forum very recently, if it is not broke, don't fix it.

    Velvia 50

    I thought they had discontinued Plus-x in sheet sizes?

    Tim, I just noticed your reply. I honestly could not tell you the status of any Kodak sheet films, despite their listings. For example, I was told I could not receive 5X7 TriX (the new stuff) for months. It arrived immediately. Days, not months. Now for some testing to see how things have changed. As for Plus X in 4X5, I have converted everyone to Ilford FP4. Ilford, at least, seems determined to keep large format things going
