    Cool!

    This is one I am looking forward to as well. I haven't used the 400F much, I think I would like to do more night stuff - so, this might be the ticket.

    This is really awesome Sort of like waking up in the morning and finding out that something wonderful you didn't think possible had happened I really didn't think Fuji would update Provia 400F at this stage. It already was a good film.

    Also, RMS 11 is mindboggling. RMS 11 is what 100 speed films used to be - no, wait, some of them still are.

    Provia 400F is a really nice film, I have used it for handheld-purposes since it were introduced and it always amazes me. I look forward to try it and compare it to Provia 100F which I also use a lot.

    Good news indeed Robert, I use Fuji slide films exclusively, and this bodes well for the company's continuing commitment to film. Makes me wonder how soon it will be before they apply this technology to Velvia 100, and the other transparency films in their already excellent range

    I believe the technology in this film is already part of Velvia 100. Here are the specs for Velvia 100: http://www.fujifilm.com/JSP/fuji/epa...n/AF3-202E.pdf

    RMS 11 :o Thats finer than K64, on paper at least. In another thread I wos told that there was not much that can be done to inprove film very much. I do wonder how Fuji do it, I wonder if there will be a Provia 100X ETC.
