Hi... Still using Velvia 50 as long as it remains available, and rating it at ISO 40 as recommended by most pros. But the time will come when I have to try Velvia 100, so the question is what should it be rated as to get best results - ISO 100 or perhaps 80?

Not sure..never used 100 Velvia. However, I have never set ISO of asa50 at 40. A lot of folks have.

Favorite lenses are my Nikons 24-120, 24-50, 50mm 1.4, I also have 90-300mm and a 1.4 matched multiplier. The Pentax 6x7 is a fantastic medium format with 50mm, 150mm and a 105mm. Lots of filters, 2 Bogan tripods. I use a Minolta IVF light meter for the Pentax.

smile.gif Without question my favorite film is fuji velvia 50. I also shot it at 40. I have used the velvia 100 with no changes in ISO settings and seems to work just fine. Like all films it really depends on what your trying to accomplish. I shot with a pentax 6x7 med. format and work a lot with moving water such as streams and waterfalls. I really prefer the velvia 50 for this type of work. When it comes to landscapes I find the 100 just fine. The tuff part is getting away from the films you love to use. Give it a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Have fun. Nelson

Wow... this thread brings back a lot of memories. I LOVE Velvia. Or at least I used to, when I shot film. I remember back in the day (when the earth was JUST cooling down) I sometimes shot 100 @ 80, but normally I shot it at what it was rated at by Fuji.

I do remember things like scenics, flowers, still lifes, etc. having unbelievably crisp detail and excellent color saturation.

I adored a lot of Fuji's print films, too, like Reala.
