    No! Please not Provia!

    Is there a replacement ISO400 slide film out there?

    No. There is Agfa sold as Rollei 200, some of which seems to have a yellow cast and some not. To my knowledge that is the fastest slide film left after the Provia 400X is gone.

    Provia?

    Black-and-white sub-forum?

    There are already threads in Product-availability and Colour . . .

    Surprised more people aren't panicked by this. Only 3 slide films left, all of which are too slow for anything but landscape work.

    100 speed is not too slow for anything but landscape work as long as you are not using a cheap zoom lens. I shot lots of Kodachrome 64 for many subjects with fast primes.

    +1. While I am certainly not happy to see the portfolio shrink, most of my color work over the past 30-odd years, has been shot on films of 25 and 64 ISO, sometimes using a tripod, often times not. The E400/ProviaX 400 and P1600 emulsions, while useful on more than a few occasions, have never been critical for most of my shooting. So while, I am regret the loss of the option...
    An assortment of F-series Nikons with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    Are you looking for 35 or 120? I have a few rolls of 120 chromes for sale. And I'm just about to lower the price.

    Often 100 is enough but one extra stop is very handy and two more so. What's more, 400X seemed to me, when well exposed, to be less contrasty than P100. With Astia and E100G both gone I would sometimes use it for that reason alone. Great film.

    Use Provia 100F pushed two stops. No big deal.
