    What was the old Scotch Chrome film like? (It was gone before I returned to film, and in my youth we were a resolutely Fuji household and I was pretty clueless anyway.)

    I'd like to see something with a warmer palette, like the old RSX films, as a market companion to the Fuji line. I like Provia 100F a lot, personally, but it definitely leaves some complementary niches open. (And the various Velviae are terrific at what they do, but their color rendition is just too Wagnerian for me.)

    The old Scotts Guard was made by 3M, it was sold by K mart and other discount stores as a house brand. The newer emulsion was developed in the 90s, Ferrania states that has nothing in common with the 3M emulsion, the Ferrania I shot in the 90 and early 2000s was nutural, I liked it as well as other E 6s of the time. If Ferrania new film makes it to market in the US I will try it.

    With new rhumors of Fuji killing another US imported E6 line of film, (Velvia100) I'm wondering how far along Ferrania is?

    Wanna' know what would be da' sheeeets?

    If Film Ferrania really was successful in bringing a re-engineered E-6 transparency film back to the market, and it turned out to be a wonderful film.

    And Kodak E-6 was already tanked. Then Fuji E-6 also tanked. Then mainline E-6 was only available from the new Ferrania.

    And their converted R&D/test coating equipment was too small to handle the remaining worldwide niche market demand for E-6. But there wasn't nearly enough worldwide niche market demand to resurrect the main coating lines.

    And they have already let it be known that their original primary motivation was to supply the 8mm/16mm cine markets. Presumably to prevent extinction of those formats.

    So we might end up in a permanent gray limbo situation where E-6 still photographers never had an assured supply. It was out there. It was fresh. It was good. But there just was never enough of it to go around, year to year.

    That would really suck...

    I just wanted to be the first person in recent memory to whine about a possible situation of over demand and under supply of photographic film in the marketplace.

    Wouldn't THAT be a kick-in-the-butt reversal?

    There are?

    Ugh. I'm not a huge Velvia fan as it's just too contrasty for my tastes, but when I do want it, it's mostly in flat lighting which also tends to be dim and 100 is a lot more useful to me than 50. I KNOW the 50 is somewhat "better" in the classic Velvia sense, but that extra stop is sure useful.

    OTOH, Provia and the less expensive Precisa version of it is proving to be a pretty good film for me. I've got to find someone with better scans than Dwayne's that doesn't cost much more though, or buy myself a film scanner. I got back the worst scans ever even from Dwayne's from my Mardi Gras in New Orleans slides and thought something was wrong with the film. Popped them on a light box - nope, film looks gorgeous. Scans are crap even by Dwayne's standards.

    Dwayne's is great at making prints and developing film, but HORRIBLE at scanning.... I figured by now they might have fixed that (since my complaint in January 2011 I refused 50 scanned rolls of Kodachrome that were all horrible... but apparently have not gotten better...
