    Once I've used my last 14 rolls of K64, I'll be moving to EPP, assuming it isn't discontinued before I've used up my current stash of 15 rolls. Never tried Provia or Astia. Velvia OK for the right subject in small doses, and something about the colour cast of Sensia that I don't like (I once shot 3 rolls of Sensia 100, and 3 of Kodachrome 64 on the same holiday in similar weather conditions, and the Kodachrome look so much more natural and pleasing to my eye).

Later, I tried Provia and Velvia and found that I liked the former, while loathing the latter. Now I mostly shoot Provia and T64, as well as the remainder of MS100/1000 stock that I still have frozen. I've yet to try Astia, but would like to. Fortia SP, if it is ever made again, would be fun to try, but not really worth using it often.
    Fresh EIR is still made and sold in bulk for aerial photography, there is a guy who buys it, cuts it down and sells it on ebay in 35mm and 120.


    I love Astia 100f, it is my answer to anything - lovely sunsets, landscapes, portraits, nudes, finest grain, best latitude.

    Interesting! :-)
    This actually surprises me. I was SURE that the number of Fujifilm shooters would blow away the number of Ektachrome shooters by a wide margin. It just seems like SO many more people shoot Fuji than Kodak.

    Yeah, I'm aware. Cheers.

    I have a couple of 2007-expiry EIR left in the freezer. I might try his 120, though.

    I voted Fujichrome, but only because they have a larger selection and I use Velvia (50 & 100) when I go on vacation. I do like EliteChrome, however.

    I don't actively shoot slide film because it's slightly expensive to buy and develop, and I don't have the subject matter to use it on.

    You mean the EIR guy?

    If so, it's this guy on flickr.

    Yes the EIR guy. Is the film expensive? I would really like to try some.

    Relative to what EIR cost in 35mm when Kodak offered it, the prices are fairly reasonable. That is to say, I believe they are in the CAD$30 neighbourhood for 120 or 135. I've yet to buy any because any EIR was spendy to begin with. The only reason I was able to buy mine was because I found a store that had had them sitting in a freezer since their expiry and knew they could no longer sell them as fresh, so they docked the price somewhat. I thought that was kind of them.
