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

    Oh well, I'll keep looking

    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.

    Not to mention the enormous increases in price for E6 film during all those years.

    I had irrational friends telling me that 'digital is here! Film will be dead soon!' in 1997! I don't remember seeing any digital camera in 1997, but my sister bought one in 2000. Unfortunately, film greatly outlived a couple of those friends who did not heed my advice to dabble in photography or some stimulating art pursuit instead of mischief. Ultiimately...

    Yes, but remember we are the ones touting film SUPPORT, so if you don't want to support it, at least don't spread the idea of it being dead, because some amateur comes along, and reads that, and never bothers, it helps to keep it going if you keep the dream alive.

    Anyway I'm going to continue to shoot it as long as it's around and enjoy it all the same, because it's just AMAZING stuff.

    What, film in general or E6?

    Truth is, I generally prefer prints and print film, but I've been shooting mostly slides the past couple of years when I shoot color because I DO like to project them and I figure I'd best do it while I can.
