    Eh, you're right. I had shot it but was thinking VC - that's the negative films, the older Portra VCs. Why they called the saturated neg films VC and the slide ones VS only Kodak marketing knows (it may be the only thing they knew.)

    Vivid Saturation vs Vivid Contrast iirc.

    I thought it was "Very Saturated" and "Vivid Color" but either way, they're both gone though the current Portras are superb films somewhere between the old NC and VC.

    VS: Vivid Saturated Colour
    NC: Natural Colour
    VC: Vivid Colour

    Today these six boxes of Kodak Ektachrome 100G arrived. I can't wait until the weather will get better and I can go out shooting. As I don't have a camera for the 120 format I plan to shoot them loaded into my Sinar Vario holder set to 6x12 cm. Next big question is how to get room for these in the freezer....

    Some technical info: It's specified that the storage temperature should be below 13 degree Celsius. Expiry date is May 2014. Furthermore the big box is marked "Rotate Stock" - I still trying to figure out the reason for that?

    It's a reminder to retailers that they should put new stock at the back of the shelf and sell/ship from the front. Lazily placing new stock at the front and then selling from the same place would result in film at the back sitting for a long time, possibly reaching/passing its expiration date.

    Just like food items at the grocery store. And the stock clerks there need this constant reminder too.

    henbo, is that SIX boxes (6x20x5 rolls = 600 rolls) or six boxes (6x5 rolls = 30)?

    This is referred to as "first in - first out" which is the proper way to stick, rather than "first in - last out" which results in expiry issues
