    E6 is good, and nothing really beats the impact of a vivid, detailed image projected large, but I lost a lot of interest in it when analog methods of printing it all went away.


    LOL! I do beg to differ. A lot!

    I agree ^^ that said... it's hard to get them made now with no paper available... the hybrid process I use makes some beautiful prints (real chemical prints, just hybrid projection process), but not the same as ilfochrome, which was better than RA4 in look IMHO... I've only seen a few ... but they were magical.

    Oh yes, Ilfo was the bees' knees compared to the 'poor cousin' RA4/ The trouble with Ilfochrome though is the restrictive two-grade contrast, among a litany of so many, many other problems with the media not worth rehashing here for the umpteenth time. I wish the folk here could see the results of hybridized printing: framed prints under spots. It's not done by inkjet either, but traditional photographic exposure using RGB.

    Why? They're going to be scanned and output via lightjet or inkjet anyway. Other than the one from transparency having too much contrast, I doubt you'll notice much difference.

    On, no negative film quite has Velvia saturation anymore (since Agfa Ultra 50 is long gone - man that was a saturated neg film) but if you print the negatives via hybrid like that you can juice up the saturation to suit, if that's your cup of tea. Ektar 100 is pretty darned saturated already.

    I've seen, and made, more than a few. They could look great IF the original transparency was perfect. Anything other than flat lighting needed masking or at least extensive dodging/burning. I never got into masking. Some slides still printed great. Some needed a masking whiz to make a decent print.

    Negative is its own breed and style. It does not need to seek to impersonate any E6 emulsion. There are of course people who will swear by neg film, others still by positive. BTW, "juicing up the saturation to suit" is patently disastrous.

    They are neither "lightjet" or "inkjet".

    They may not be a brand name, but digitally written to conventional RA4 paper via computer controlled lasers. That, or inkjet, are pretty much the only games in town for most people to print from transparencies nowadays, barring certain alternative processes.

    I can recognize an E6 shot from a mile away. Why is that?
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
