    Thanks for the info! I hope that the new Velvia has reciprocity similar to that of Provia 100F. If this is the case, Velvia 100F could easily become my new favorite, as I've been wishing that Provia 100F had a bit more contrast and greater color-saturation.

    I don't get it. The phrases, "brings the ultra-high-saturated color of Fujifilm's renowned Velvia", and "world-class color fidelity" appear in neighboring sentances.

    Which is it, I wonder?

    And the next paragraph sure is interesting:

    U.S. Introduction of Instant, Peel-Apart Film for Professionals
    Fujifilm will introduce to the U.S. marketplace its professional instant color film FP-100C, which produces exceptional picture quality and excellent color reproduction. This ISO 100 instant color film, optimized for use under direct sunlight or electronic flash, produces prints with little to no gradation imbalance, from highlights to shadows, superior light fading characteristics and reduced color variations caused by elongated peeling time. Fujifilm will also introduce FP-100B, an EI 100 instant black and white film, and FP-3000B, an EI 3200 instant black and white film to the U.S.


    New emulsions, just when I'd gotten Velvia and Provia development and printing pretty much dialed in....

    It seems film manufacturers do this on purpose just to mess with people. Look at T Max and Kodak, just when everybody was comfortable and using TMX films. They go an change it.....typical

    Voof... I just accessed that site and read ... most of it. Condensation: "We&#39;re bringing out a bunch of new `stuff&#39;".

    Hmm... from the "hype" section:

    "As a result of these technologies, the final product features vibrant skin tones (?), clear whites (??), sharp definition ( nah... I&#39;ll leave it alone), and [ is an accurate reflection of the photographer&#39;s original vision...]"

    Oh, it is, is it? ... And just HOW do you guys know what my "original vision" was?
    Carpe erratum!!

    The color rendition of Velvia was never indisputable. Some like it some hate it and some other use it for certain applications.

    In this case, You are a little late to this ;-) Velvia has been introduced over 10 years ago. His replecement was actually overdue. It has been the oldest color film on market, except from Kodachrome.

    Well, it&#39;s hard for the marketing people of conventional photo stuff to keep up with the digitalists these days. We should be a little more lenient ;-)

    True, but Velvia was introduced to photography before I was.

    most of the above posters are being a bit "picky" and must keep in mind that most advertizing copy writers pay no heed to the truth and probably know very little about true phpotography.

    The extra stop should help eliminate some of the reciprocity problems I often run into shooting Velvia. If all other characteristics are the same, then I will still religate it to limited use on total overcast days. Don&#39;t realy like it&#39;s color rendition, but do love it&#39;s contrast POP.
    Push your limits regularly!
