    Might be a good guess; mine is that it's unfiltered Velvia 100 (can be hideously magenta-ish), too.
    Also UV penetration and degradation of print. Can't pass any sort of judgement really on the traditionally piss-poor iPhone snaps... Step up to the soapbox sir and tell us what it was!

    Just posted a link to the image on the gallery right before your post... and I just checked, it's definitely Provia100f, I used a Circular Polarizer, the Mamiya 7 specific one at full polarization strength so that helped.

    Here's the link again...

    Indeed, how I HATE those excessive colours the E6 brings. Makes me want to shoot bayer-digital, the most "natural" looking unexcessive colors on planet Earth! I will never ever bother with E6 anymore since verything is EXCESSIVE and ugly, oversaturated, just horrible those E6 films are... And that's Provia, Astia and E100G included - better shoot a bayer-sensored dSLR digital for much more humble almost unnoticable mathematically calculated colors


    Provia vs Velvia "humbleness":

    After reading this E6 "bashing", looking at my E6 pics now I think I've made a most horrifing mistake in my life, I should've switched to humble digital long time ago or de-saturate and de-contrast all of my pics ASAP! Why I even shot the E6 in the first place? It's just beyond me! Especially now when they're considered very poor, horrible, excessive and oversaturated films by so many well regarded pro photographers. Will I ever grow up?


    Cheers,

    This is a particular fav of mine from your shots:

    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Margus, you've gone nuts or something. I didn't bash Velvia in this case, I just said it looked like Velvia. When over used it's a look I don't particularly care for, but some people do. And Ektar 100 can be over saturated for some things too, not to mention the potential abuses hybrid processing opens up. But used to add some pop in flat lighting Velvia can be great.

    I still find most modern E6 films - well I guess that's only two now - over saturated and overly contrasty for my personal tastes. YMMV of course. You're right, color neg doesn't really look like that unless you torture it into it in hybrid post processing. Provia is manageable for "normal slides" as I'd call them if the light isn't too harsh.

    For someone who doesn't like vivid color film, you sure make a lot of beautiful colorful images.

    Ferrania claims to be making E-6 soon, perhaps there's will be more muted

    Cheers guys,

    It's my nature to be sarcastic about whining

    Just shoot whatever fits your bill and keep the E6 film alive, or at least that little we have left

    FYI I just got a big box of 35mm 400x from Unique Photo.
    They had the best price I could find and the expiration date is Jan 2015.
    They also sell Fuji Slide film Mailers that are processed by Dwayne's Photo.
    I use a lot of them, I ordered 50 in early 2012 and they had an expiration date of 12-31-2013.
    That was about a 2 year life span.
    They were out of stock but Fuji just printed another batch with dates of 3-31-2014.
    So it looks like Fuji will keep the contract with Dwayne's at least a little longer.

    Question (2 actually)

    1. With those mailers can you send more than one roll of film in each mailer?

    And two, how much are they?
