Once the Ektachrome is done, I expect to be switching to Provia/Velvia, shooting, I would guess, something in the neighbourhood of 75 - 100 rolls /year. In terms of black and white, I typically shoot around of 100 -125 rolls/year of Tri-X/HP5 Plus (I use them interchangeably) along with a brick or so a year of Delta 3200.

    In 2 1/4: Colour work - 50 rolls/year? - is done on Velvia 50; black and white (the majority of my medium format work) is either PanF Plus or FP4 Plus, depending upon the season. Typically, I order in 100 roll (60/40 - PanF Plus - FP4 Plus) lots from B&H or Adorama at least once every 8 months or so.

    A lot of film for someone who no longer shoots professionally? Perhaps. But, a) I live on the Left Coast ( read: spectacular scenery, in the city and surrounding areas); b) I love to travel; c) I love to shoot photographs; and d) I do not, nor have I ever, owned a television set (read: I do not live a sedentary lifestyle).
    That's pretty awesome

    I suggest you stock up now on Fuji chromes, they are about to have a price hike

    Then again you don't really seem to be worried about money much...

    I certainly would shoot a heck of a lot more chromes if I could afford to...

    Stop being awesome, it's not fair to the rest of us

    Huh? I don't follow you.

    0 is worthless
    5 is worth 5...

    I don't know what you learned in 3rd grade but I was already past addition and onto long and short division at that point...

    Stone... anything below about 51-100 per year (pure guess on my part) is "spit in the ocean". That is the point I am hoping you can follow. Re: 3rd grade, I didn't go to 3rd... I skipped it and went straight to 5th.

    I'd probably not use it. Slides are OK but I like prints better. Is it even possible to print it without Cibachrome being available?

    I'm not sure if it's a matter of worrying about money, StoneNYC, as it is a matter of wanting to grasp the moment and celebrate being alive and all the beauty that surrounds us! Is there a better vehicle for doing so than pursuing one of the "arts"? As I have mentioned in other posts, I have an almost pathological fear of missing "things" to the point that at least one (and often two) of my Nikons are always loaded and nearby; indeed I never leave the house without a camera (Jay Maisel's advice). A future with Velvia/Provia? I am more concerned to use the Ektachrome I have in stock, before committing to purchasing more E6; given the shrinkage of Fuji's offerings in the recent past, I wonder about the availability of processing in the future...
    An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) 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.

    zero....not even if it were priced on par with E6.

    I love color prints. However, after nearly four decades of using whatever C-41 was on sale and enjoying high quality, fast, local processing at reasonable prices, I've pretty much given up on color photography - both print and chrome. Processing has become an expensive crap shoot. The few labs that are left take a week minimum and often as not produce shitty results.

    I mean simply you can afford to shoot that much, I simply couldn't shoot that much and also not die of starvation from lack of eating food for a year ... Lol

    That's starting to look like a mistake.
