    Try out Kodak Elite Chrome 100 (not the extra colour version) -- I have always liked it more than Sensia 100 (although Sensia 100 was a decent film.) It's also about 2/3rds the price of E100G.

    To my mind, Elite Chrome 100, Elite Chrome 100 Extra Colour and Elite Chrome 200 are some of the best E6 materials on the market at a reasonable cost.

    I find Elite Chrome 100 to be slightly warmer than E100G, which improves color in the shadows and in overcast light.

    Hi Steve, I shoot quite a lot of Ektar in both 35mm and 120 , I get them processed at a pro lab and get excellent results with it , I may be old fashioned and don't own a scanner but I firmly believe in shooting prints on neg. film and slides on reversal film, to me correctly exposed slides projected with a good projector have a beauty that neg film or digital can't match.

    Because you can choose an emulsion that has a colour saturation, contrast level and colour palate that's most suitable the task in hand .

    I've shot Fortia 50 and Fortia 50 SP (even more saturated) a few times in 120 - the saturation boggled the mind. It used to appear in stores around cherry blossom viewing time here in Japan (late March/early April.) This year and last year alas, it didn't show up

    I can't say I'm surprised at Sensia being discontinued (though I'm not happy.) On the contrary I've been amazed that Fuji still makes so many E-6 emulsions: Velvia, Sensia, Astia, Trebi, Provia and T64. Perhaps this latest news is Fujifilm circling the wagons and protecting what emulsions it still makes. That's good news for us.

    I have some photography planned for 35mm transparency and had planned on getting in some Sensia. However I think I'll keep to the pro films, partly due to being able to get stock as I need it.

    I don't know about Elitechrome (though I may shortly be finding out!) but it's actually the lack of excessive saturation or naturalness that I liked about Sensia. All the stuff about "this film's like this and that film's good for that, etc." don't really cut any ice for me, as my slide film usage is when I'm out and about, usually on foot, and I'm a) not going to hump around various bodies loaded with different films and b) unlikely to shoot more than a few shots of one subject. Sensia was the General Motors of the film world (in more senses than one, as GM went phut!) as it offered colours I liked, a reasonable speed (I usually went for the 100ASA) and reasonable cost. I've been paying about 9GBP for 36 exposures with processing included, though as in my other recent post, I've become increasingly unhappy with the processing. Boots own brand film for a long time was AFAIK Sensia 200 and the mailer (as that was/is process paid) had Fuji Lab's address printed on it. When Fuji changed labs, i enquired and was told to keep sending the Boots branded film to the old address. The Boots brand material was a real bargain at about 7GBP for 36 exp inc processing. Boots have offered an 'own brand' slide film for as long as I can remember (my first ever colour film in 1970 was a Boots Colourslide) and it will be interesting to see what happens there.

    I'm afraid that Trebi has been discontinued.....
