    1. Yes.
    2. For projection
    and though not asked,
    3. Because I don't yet have a medium format projector. If I did I think my M645 would replace a lot of my 35mm E6 shooting.

    I haven't shot transparency in a hell of a long time, but I have been thinking about using more now.

    I have a big stash of slide film. I continue to add to it because the stuff now sells so cheaply at swap meets.

    I have a big stash of 6 step Kodak e-6 chems that are still working fine, despite having slipped past their best by date.

    I rarely mount them. They go into neg filer pages. Some times I scan them. Some time I project them. Some times I shoot an interneg and print the interneg to an RA-4 print.

    They look so great just on a light box. Usually the images are a great capsule of a vacation I have taken.
    my real name, imagine that.

    One of the enduring treats of transparency is seeing each vibrant image come to life on the lightbox. There is nothing like it.

    I have shot 35mm Velvia and some Provia almost exclusively since I think 1994. Over that long period of time many, many images were taken to the Ilfochrome Classic media and framed. The discontinuance of that means these musuem-grade conservation framed prints are now appreciating in value.

    In September last year I migrated to the 6x7 format which is used for the majority work now, but due to that format's size and weight specs, the evergreen, versatile 35mm EOS 1N (loaded with Velvia, Provia or even a B&W like ACROS) is the preferred choice for bushwalking (also multiformat pinhole).

    No trouble finding E6 processing at the moment; they do the processing, I bring it back to the studio for cutting and vetting. The best of the pics are archival card mounted and labelled; this assists the printer as it has all my identification info on it, additional to scanning, colourimetric and final RIP requirements.

    I do have a cache of Velvia, Provia and the much-derided Velvia 100F and only place an order for more film when there is one box remaining.

    Because it's gorgeous.
    And because I know what I will get.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I use slide film for stock photography. I don't mount any more, only scan them. Lightbox and loupe are a very satisfying way to look at them. Negatives can't offer that.

    I just got some E6 in 35mm. I've hardly used it much if you compare the numbers of rolls to how many of print or B&W I've done, but I've done enough to usually get what I want. I have this idea of shooting some things and then projecting them on another subject and shooting that result.
    And I'll likely use some to photograph life in general.

    once in a blue moon
    because if i decide to duplicate it through current modern means,
    it is easier than with negative film ...
    i have a stash of chrome film, formats 30mm - 5x7
    and it looks beautiful processed in coffee, as a black and white negative
    the cast is a drag but i can remedy that through modern means ...

    i have always wished wanted dr5chrome to process a my film, but
    i am too short on cash to do that ... from what i understand
    dr5 does stellar work and i kind of wish i could fast for a few weeks
    and send him my food $$ for slides

    <*choke*> Coffee!? As a B&W negative!? Sacrelege!
    Considering the cost of transparency film, I don't see the point from an economic point view. Each to his own though, I guess...

    Yes, I continue to shoot 35mm slides and just got a roll back last week. When properly exposed, I love how the look on the screen. I also like the idea that they can be put in a shoe box and perhaps be discovered someday by my grandchildren, and they can simply hold them up to the light to see what the world looked like at the time they were taken.

    I have to admit, however, that I don't shoot enough of them and need to do more.
