    I like the 100F for it's incredible resistance to reciprocity failure - you can go up to a full minute with neither exposure nor color compensation. That is also at the expense of the color saturation, though. I hope the 100 shows these properties, but with the great colors of V50. I like shooting in low light, so right now it's 100F for ease of exposure calculation, etc.

    I never found Velvia to be as fast as 50 so if the new film speed is accurate, it might be more than one stop.

    Lets hope the 100 is as good as they say. I am starting to run out of freezer space with all the other films I am having to stockpile.

    I've shot the 50 at a 4 min exposure and didn't have a colour shift. I was amazed, and very pleased since 8x10 film isn't cheap.

    After shooting Velvia for about 10 years now, I have never had a reciprocity failure problem with long exposures.

    Aargh! I'm primarily B&W but colour I shoot mostly with Velvia 50 - looove the colours and it works really well in the harsh Australian sun. I'll place a photo into the gallery. Yep, it's colour!

    'simular' that is the key word, Kodak tried to push that down our throats as well, when they discontiued Kodachrome 25....more speed, less grain, is an oxy-moron...

    Velvia is a bit overkill for portraits - it does terrible things to skin colors. Have you tried Provia F100; I think you will like it much better.

    I think the provia would have left Nicole's daughter a sickly blue in that lighting situation, unless she used an 81A filter as well. Astia might have been a better choice.
