    I googled and it's literally an emulsion product - like liquid light

    Go Ferrania!

    Wasn't Velvia 100F the one that people didn't like? (well, at least, Ken didn't like it, I wasn't the biggest fan). As long as they don't touch 50 and 100, that's fine with me... (ps, Forza Ferrania!)
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    The discontinuation was first rumoured back in June and was circulating here in Australia from the distributor. 100F will not be missed. It is has a repulsive palette, is difficult to scan and looked garish on Ilfochrome Classic. Better results have been experienced through hybrid print processing but for traditional RA4 printing it is the pits. And now... about 100...

    I found Fuji Velvia 100F much more contrasty than Fuji Velvia 100.

    I find it curious that it outlasted Provia 400X, but that one seemed sadly too niche and more expensive (though technically great). It seemed to be positioned rather indifferently and people seemed to feel like that for it.
    So now, it is: Provia 100F (RDPIII), Velvia 50 (RVP50) and Velvia 100 (RVP100).

    It feels strange to me, I still think about Ektachrome being around and it's been 2 years already since its demise. Thankfully, and hopefully Fuji's range will be stabilized in the above options, at least it seems to be their strategy for the mid term (new packaging).
    And go Ferrania! But we should never lose Fuji's offerings if possible.

    Well, I loaded a roll of Provia 100F into the GW690, and will try to shoot it when I've got some time. Amusingly Fuji for a while.

    How can they cancel it if they even have not listed it before? I mean I cannot even find this product at their site, did not even know its existence.

    It is an indent/special order (industry) product.
