    There are a few tricks to it, Stone. You can't just wing Ektar. And it will never look the same as any transparency film - just analogous, and
    worthy in its own right.

    Just got done processing some FP4+ I shot over the last couple days. First time I'm trying it in X-TOL. As far as color, what I can get. Right now I have a stock of Provia, Velvia, and Porta

    You should send me an extra 8x10 of yours and some ektar100 8x10 sheets and I'll follow all your instructions on how to get good results, sound good?

    (PS I was recently told by someone I trust and respect that you actually do know a lot and should listen to you, there goes all my plans of ignoring you... Hah!).

    I dunno. I'm having fits whether or not to shoot 8x10 Ektar tommorow, or take the 4x5 Norma. Expensive stuff. But with our horrible drought out
    here, the hills have incredible neutral tones ranging from golds to all kinds of grays and earthtones - and nothing I've ever used before handles
    these kinds of hues as well as Ektar. And once the first rain arrives, those colors will disappear into the green. ... If the rain doesn't arrive soon, the entire state will blow away in a dust storm. We're having brush fires right now instead of our usual creek flooding. The only chrome film that worked with these kinds of hues was a old very-grainy high-contrast Agfachrome, pre-E6 - it had muted greens but the warm tones were incredible.

    Wow even Velvia50 doesn't have them? Actually doesn't Velvia100 have more red hues? Perhaps that's an option?

    Found a couple of rolls of pre-APX Agfapan 400 [120] lurking in a dark corner of the camera store...hope they're still good!

    What a pain in the backside! Enough to knot the stomach for a while...

    Did you make some safety exposures on some other film?
