Just put one roll of E100VS and one roll of Velvia 50 up on the big screen tonight. I was very surprised that I preferred the Kodak hands down. It looked sharper and IMO the colors were more vibrant across the entire color spectrum. This situation is soooo irritating!
I'd rather make a mascot out of a turtle or crocodile rather than an ostritch. For one thing, they've
outlasted all the fancy dinosaurs that were the latest and greatest of the era. But frankly, any of
these critters will do if I can just feed a couple of individuals to them. Maybe their damn cell phone
cameras will make appropriate gizzard stones. Even ostriches will swallow those things. I've about
had it with spies from the digital regurgitation trying to demoralize things. Time to check up on that
control that deletes Benedict Arnold posts.
I talked to Freestyle today (well, yesterday now) because I had an order to put in and had a couple of those "low inventory, call for status" items. After I'd checked my items, which were all available as they always seem to be, I asked about E100G because that morning it had shown sold out with more expected March 15 (or 16, I forget, mid month anyway..) so I asked if they got some more in. He checked, yes they had, 250 rolls, then the guy said "if you want some you should be safe, we normally sell about 15 rolls of that a month."
15 rolls A MONTH of E100G in 35mm, from Freestyle, probably along with B&H and Adorama in the top three film sellers in North America for the Internet market.
