    E100 is one hell of a film. This stuff in 8x10 is going to absolutely slay. Shut up and take my money, Kodak.

    I still like Velvia 50 in 120. But willing to try it if it comes out.

    Velvia might look good on a light box, but it's not a particularly versatile film in terms of printing characteristics. When it comes to sheet film, E100G was made on dimensionally stable estar base, while most Velvia and Provia was still on floppy, shrinking triacetate. Acetate can be hell if precise registration is needed for sake of optical printing or duplicating. Otherwise, some kinds of mules are flashy and classic, it seems, while others are friendly, cuddly, and smell like a mule. 8x10 Ektachrome has the smell of leather, as my wallet is emptied out.

    Isnít printing from a slide a has-been consideration? I stopped that back in the 1990ís because I was not happy with the results.

    Iíll only shoot transparency film to project or look at on a light table.

    Has been? I was doing it all summer. I'm getting superb results from Portra contact internegs. It involves masking the original chrome and has a steep learning curve, but once you're on target you've got something that will print on ra4 paper like a duck goes to water. But I only have time to prioritize 8x10 chrome originals for now, not anything smaller.

    I got the slides back from the lab, and decided to rescan a few. Whew, much better than what they'd done:
