    I wasn't aware the update came out 15 years ago, the only chromes I shot were Kodachrome until 2010...

    The info I read didn't say when the change happened.

    You must have a very large deep freezer

    Thanks and no Stone, I don't have freezer. All my films are stored in fridge, since my student budget doesn't allow to buy a freezer.
    The change of Provia to Provia 100F is 1998 or 1999 I think.

    kyon, yes I'm sure. you aren't the op who started the thread. I'm currently using rdp and rvp that's older than that and it's perfect. 1999 was the last year for provia 100.

    Multiple Cameras

    I don't think that it is the cameras. The film overexposes to the same extent with three different camera - F1n, AE-1, A-1. I am totally convinced that the film emulsion has changed and does not have the same response in bright light situations. Provia users beware of bright lite situations, and decrease exposure by 1/3 - 1/2 stop.

    Probably some old or poorly stored film. The ASA of Provia has been identical for all three generations of the product. The "latitude" did change
    a bit with 100F. This is most noticable in the way the current products pulls poorly.

    Post some examples.
    I've been shooting provia for 12+ years with emulsions dating back to the early 90's and I haven't had this issue you speak of. I also use a spot meter.

    For critical work or film testing per se I would never use TTL metering. Just too many variables. Always a properly calibrated spotmeter and a
    high-quality target. And never assume that a camera store gray card is accurate. Few of them are. I always use the MacBeath color checker
    chart, which is very carefully manufactured, and under properly balanced lighting.
