    New Velvia 50 tried

    Hello!
    I tried the new velvia 50 film, both in 135 and 120 formats.
    You can find 2 galleries at

    http://www.oltrelimmagine.net/Galler...lleriesoci.php

    then click on "Simone" (the only one recognised with a square pictures) and go to "Sardegna2007" (Sardinia 2007).
    In the precedent 120 film roll could see a little more sensibility, about 1/3 stop so I decided to expose this film at 64 iso.
    For 135: Pentax lx, meter on 64 iso
    For 120: Pentax 6x7 , meter on 80 iso (this camera overexpose of about 1/3 stop, so I corrected to have a 64 iso effective sensibility)
    For any question I'm present, but excuse my poor english!
    Enjoy!

    In your opinion, how does this newer film compare to the old 50 or the newer 100 speed? (grain, contrast, color, etc)

    The new View Camera is on the stand with a review and pictures. It looks to be so very close that it's considered essentially the same. It's hard to tell from the pictures, printing and all, so I take the comments of the reviewer. It's 100.1% a dead ringer with the nod to the new stuff from what I gather.

    Others including myself who have independently tried the new version also experienced a speed increase of 1/3 stop.

    Sounds (very) good!

    Any info on reciprocity?
    The destination is important, but so is the journey

    Not from my testing Frank.

    However the printed tech info sheet from Fuji is the same as the original in terms of exposure times. I don't use CC filters for long exposures so cannot comment on that aspect.

    I use the first roll at 50 iso and shades were very open, even when I shoot with 2 seconds without correcting time. In my opinion the reciprocity is better on long exposure times: up to 2/4 seconds it seems to be linear and no colors shifting.
    With this first test I experienced the 64 iso effective sensibility, and so I did on these images you can see.
    Compared to the old Velvia: not the same feeling. No grain, very little less contrast and saturation. An half way between the old Velvia and the Velvia100, (but probably closer to Velvia) but... I don't know why, not the same feeling.
    Maybe I only need to know better the film (effective sensibility, contrast, reciprocity) to let it work as the old one...
    well, we'll see with next rolls!

    OMG that's saturated!

    More so than the Velvia 100 I've shot!
