    400X is around $27 a roll (120) /146 5 roll ProPack here in Australia. Not much more expensive than Velvia but the least popular of any of Fuji's 'chromes.

    I really only shoot transparency in 35mm for projection. B&W and color print in 120 and 4x5. I do shoot print film in 35mm too when lighter quicker handling cameras, zoom lenses or faster lenses than I have in 120 are needed.

    I'm probably going to pick up some 400X in 120 but other than the fact I won't be able to layer I really don't know why!

    I just want to see my chromes on a light box in 4x5...I could stare for hours...

    Also Roger I picked up an Agfa super slide projector at a good will but it was missing the tray, I think I remember hearing you discuss them, do you have any extra trays? It's a line tray instead of a circular one as far as I can tell.

    And WOW Australia film prices are just silly, I would probably quit film at those prices, that's 5 times the price of some films here...

    Yes indeed. It's the prime reason shoppers desert bricks and mortar retail for online. All my film is bought on eBay from a dealer buying wholesale from Fujifilm Australia — no overheads, GST, staff costs, mark-up...whatever else is summarily tacked on by retailers that makes the price so much a disincentive for people to use and enjoy film (especially students who are turned off the cost and migrate without second thought to digital).

    Nope, no spare trays. I had an old...forget the brand, but a projector I had in high school when I couldn't afford a Kodak, that used straight trays, but it's long gone or buried in my parents' basement in TN. I have a Medalist projector and some carousel trays, but I use those. I don't have a medium format projector. I think "super slides" where slides nearly 2" square that were shot on medium format and mounted in mounts with thin margins for projection in 35mm projectors. I've never seen one or used them, but I would get a medium format projector IF the film weren't going away. 6x6 or even 6x4.5 slides have to be awesome (6x7 even more so, but then the projector price and rarity goes up a great deal.)

    Why do you say MF is "going away"?

    I have a bunch of 6x6 slide mounts but I'm hesitant to cut the 6x7 images since they all look better in that ratio than in 6x6

    Oh well, I'll keep looking

    You need a 6x4.5 back for your RB67 - and some 6x4.5 mounts.

    I mean that E6 film in general is clearly on its way out, so I am reluctant to spend money on a medium format projector and slide mounts at this stage. I don't mean that 120 black and white or color neg are (yet for color neg) in any danger of being gone very soon.

    We've been hearing "E6 is dead!" for like the last 10 years now. Personally I think it's an incredibly beautiful medium and more people should be using it for color. I shoot it in every format I use, along with c-41, and b/w.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Think what you like but we are now down to three currently produced emulsions or, more accurately, TWO films, one of which comes in two speeds - Velvia 50 and 100 and Provia 100.

    In 2010 when I was doing my "farewell to Kodachrome" I moved on to Astia, which was then canceled. Then I moved to E100G, then Kodak quit making all E6 films. Now Fuji has dropped Provia 400X.

    It takes a monumental effort at whistling past the graveyard not to acknowledge that E6 has one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel.
