    If there could only be one slide film, Astia 100F would be my choice. Although Velvia produces stunning landscape slides viewed on a light table, Astia makes extremely lovely colors as well, is finer grained and much, much easier to scan. It was the film you could do the most with. I discovered it too late, after discontinuation. When I got hold of the few pieces left, I settled on E100G as an alternative. When that came to an end, I was wise enough to invest to stock up. I can live pretty well with my E100G stock, but Astia is really missed, because I found it better in every aspect.

    I suspect, Provia will be the last to remain available, and although is technically a good film, in terms of colors it is visibly behind E100G and considerably inferior to Astia.

    the law?

    "Digital shooter." Ain't that against the law or is it considered a mercy killing?

    When I lived in Japan, Astia was all that I shot when I wanted colour. I did some work for an architect friend. Great reciprocity characteristics. Very special film. I haven't used any for years (or colour for that matter) until I went back for a visit in '09. My wife's uncle gave me a bag of expired 120 film and there was a role of Astia. I brought it home with me and it sits in my freezer. I'm not a colour guy, but I may use it for something...

    Will that drone shoot you down if you are speeding? In other words... How do they "enforce"??

    They are equipped with Hellfire missiles.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Well yes, Andrew.... the very stable reciprocity was what made Astia such a good duping film, along with its very accurate color, ease of adjusting to tungsten illumination, very fine grain, and slightly longer scale than other chrome films. A true homerun film. Unfortunately, not
    many people bought tickets to that ball game, so realized its potential too late.

    Ha drones... Everyone is fussing about what the NSA could potentially snoop into, when you're going to have town burglars and peeping toms
    running drones everywhere, and even Amazon.com wanting to clog the air with zillions of them, and of course, starting a few forest fires and plane wrecks in the process. If you thought jet contrails in your landscape shot were annoying ... Nice opportunity for someone marketing low-cost attack drones to the public, to shoot down the encroachment of other drones. Kinda like the mosquito hawk against the mosquito. Ain't all
    this techie stuff wonderful. I already have to sweep up the leaves after the storm... how am I gonna get the drone out of the branches, when
    it got blown off course? Good thing that geeks didn't create the world in the first place. Bad thing that they want to re-create it.
