    You didn't read closely.. no doubt it is film. I know that!
    And I know she uses E-6 films (120) in a Rollie.

    I "e-know" her through a mutual client we have both worked with/for.
    I have seen a photo/snap of her sitting at a table with Salgado and others looking at prints.
    I am hardly worthy to bother her and am happy to "know" her, and perhaps meet over a stack of prints for coffee one day if ever.

    Make sure to invite Salgado too, and maybe Meyerowitz. And me of course

    On a more serious note, some photographers are quite happy to talk about their equipment and technique. Others are very unhappy to do so.

    I also think it's a bit of a side-track to try to use the same gear as some famous photographer, because you could never truly emulate their style that way. (If I use Tri-X, it still won't ever look like Corbijn or Salgado.)

    The best thing we can do is to find our own gear and then focus on taking photos we like.

    I know you know that.

    Whatever it is, it looks good to me and I am curious what film it is, that's all.

    Well, if it is E-6 that she's shooting, as stated above, then that narrows it down considerably!

    Well, expect E6 to go next. The market is drying up out there for these films.

    Just call me Chicken Little, but it is true.

    Again, go Ferrania. It's rapidly converging down to the last best long-term hope. At least that we are aware of publicly. And I hope they don't stumble.

    But they might...

    In the mean time I will shoot as much E6 as possible. But even my pro lab's machine is getting dusty... since the throughput has slowed down considerably.

    Me too.......that's all I've used for well over 20+ years, and most of that was Velvia 50....

    I get the feeling that E-6 is doing well here in China. Cost to process is not bad and even the film is not horribly expensive. I hope that somehow we can hang onto the last few types of E-6 film.
