    Velvia 50 Strikes Back!

    I was able to obtain a few (35mm) rolls of this newly-re-released emulsion and here are a few shots (taken with an Olympus OM-10) :











    It *seems* to me that this modern, updated emulsion is a tiny bit kinder with skin tones than the previous one. It also seems less intense with the reds, but as with the original, green and blue are quite pronounced.

    May I ask where you got it? Is it available over the counter here in the States yet?

    I sent an email to Fujifilm USA asking when it would be available. The gal wrote back sometime in June or early Summer, and asked if I'd like some sample rolls. She sent me 5 rolls. I've shot two rolls. If you'd like I'd be happy to send you a roll, or you could ask Fuji for a pre-release sample.

    I got samples from Fuji UK about a month ago and so far I've used one 120 roll in parallel with some of my last remaining stock of the original RVP material. For my application (which did not include people) I found it tough to tell much difference between the original and new versions- which I think is positive whilst we have the somewhat different Velvia 100 to choose from too.

    Thats a preliminary view.

    I haven't seen any here in Canada. By the looks of the posted samples, I think I would be interested in trying out a few rolls.

    Nice, I can't wait to see Velvia 50 hit the shelves here in Greater Toronto.

    Thanks. If "early summer" is the target, I think I can hold my breath. I'm sure two of the shops here will start carrying it when it makes its way into the pipeline.

    Who did you write? I wrote Fuji USA and got a non-answer (.... Fuji 50 was discontinued, <blah><blah><blah>, but will be available sometime in the summer).
