    Source for Velvia 50

    Hi all,

    We all heard about how RVP 50 would be available in the US by summertime.
    (It feels chilly in here tonight.) I haven't been able to locate a source that has
    the stuff, at least in date. East Coast Photo advertises it as being available, but
    they offered me April-dated film (and shipped a 10-sheet box while charging me
    for a 50). I was able to buy 50 sheets at Yodobashi Camera in Osaka last month,
    but I might not be back there for a while. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Joe O'Hara

    Hi Joe,

    Badger Graphic lists Velvia 50 in QL form in stock and 10 sheet boxes. They may not have received the 50 sheet boxes, but may be worth a call.

    Jeff at Badger can be contacted at:

    I purchased a box of Quickloads from Badger Graphics (www.badgergrahics.com) via the internet last week.

    Hunt's has a past date special on Velvia on eBay right now. 100 sheets for about 100 bucks.

    All,

    Thanks. I've linked up with Badger and expect them to deliver soon.

    I had a batch of RVP50 processed this week. It was the first time I have
    used this material. I was really surprised at how it picks up the contrast
    and color. Actually, it seems to be a little hard to control in high contrast
    situations (sky and foreground, etc) suggesting the need for a GND filter.
    But in the rain, I got a couple of images that have me thinking about going
    out on overcast days, which are very common around here, except at this
    particular time of year

    Cheers,
    Joe O'Hara

    Joe,

    Overcast conditions are optimal for Velvia 50. It will do better for shadow detail that Velvia 100, and is comparable to E100VS in this regard. What ISO are you rating the film at?

    Thank goodness! I still have old stock RVP50 in my freezer.

    JPlomley,

    It seems to be spot-on at ISO 50, normal processing. I'll be
    out again tomorrow and there should be some light clouds in the
    morning so we'll see how it goes.

    Regards,
    Joe
