Re: RIP

This is an interesting thread and I notice that threads that discuss the forum seem to get the most activity, and the ones bearing bad news, i.e. the death of velvia :( oh, and of course the rather bizarre threads arguing about name colours :roll: Personally I prefer forums which discuss images,tech...

Re: Velvia 100F dynamic range confusion.

It means that if you see some too dense shadows (i.e. that are -5 or -6 stops or possibly more) you should still take the shot and send it off to be drum scanned :-) Also, there is usually a little bit more in the highlights than you might expect.. How much I can't really say at the moment as I sti...

That's astonishing, but for the average photographer what does it mean?

Re: Velvia 100F dynamic range confusion.

Paul, Silly question, but how do you pay for items from Germany? i.e. phone & credit card, send Euros, whatever? Thanks Dennis. Dennis, For Maco I just used their paypal option, other retailers I've dealt with I've generally used credit/debit card or paypal. No real difference to dealing with any o...

Re: Velvia 100F dynamic range confusion.

Thanks Charles,

I love buying stuff from German retailers, they always include a little bag of Haribo :D

Astia arrived from Maco today and I'll definitely use them again (unlike a certain UK supplier of Kodak film which I'm getting increasingly annoyed with).

Re: Isle of Purbeck meet up in March?

Very nice Sean, especially the first one. I see what you mean about the velvia going mad in #2, I still like it though.

Paul.

P.S.
I had a play with fixing the green cast in my images and re-posted new versions in the original post above. Hopefully they are a little better :lol:

Re: Velvia 100F dynamic range confusion.

Thanks Charles,

I've now ordered some 100F to try. Astia has me intrigued but I assume the only option is to get it from the US. Badger Graphic and B&H both list it, anywhere else worth looking at ?

Re: Isle of Purbeck meet up in March?

Thanks for the feedback guys, the green cast is so obvious once it's pointed out, a bit embarrassing that I missed it really :lol: I must have been staring at them for too long without a neutral reference (at least that's my rather poor excuse).

Re: Velvia 100F dynamic range confusion.

OK, scrub all that, me being dumb (what's new I hear you say :lol: ), after looking again I find that velvia 100 and 100F both come out at around 4 stops , so about the same as velvia 50.

Apologies.
Paul.
