    Probably because most slide shooters are generally into daytime outdoor photography (nature, mountains, cityscapes, buildings, bridges, etc). And for this sort of photgraphy, the fine grain and sharpness of a slower film trumps speed.

    I know that alot of people think that people like us are fools for not switching to C41 films. But let's face it. Slide film has a visual impact to it that C41 will NEVER be able to duplicate. Also, if you like to project, then you are out of luck with C41.

    I think E100VS suffers from people's experience with Velvia... Thanks to Velvia people seem to assume a saturated slide film also has to look completely unrealistic and cartoonish; E100VS is proof this doesn't need to be the case.

    E100VS is actually perfectly natural to me; it's the only film I know that renders colours as I see them - I find all other colour films rather 'muted' compared to the memory in my head.
    Another day goes under; a little bourbon will take the strain...

    It's all personal taste I guess - I've always thought VS was more cartoonish than Velvia (I mean the original 50 here), especially the way it overdoes reds and yellows to the point of turning mostly-brown leaves reddish and popping real reds beyond the level of anything I've experienced in nature. To me Velvia sees the world more like I do. To each his/her own, though - I hope VS stays around for a long time, and if they'd reduce the grain I'd still find a lot more uses for it.

    I voted I shoot pretty much an equal amount of all the ektachrome films, meaning I shoot none. I make up for it by shooting just as much of the other slide films.

    I'd really like tostart shooting slide film. I think it's pretty cool to project a slide rather than look at a print every once in a while. you know, just to change it up a bit. Unfortunately, I probably wont shoot enough to justify buying a kit of e-6 chems, and i'm too poor to go and pay $8 or $10 or whatever the only local photo store will charge me. I'm not a big fan of mailing film off or trusting Wal-Mart to do it for me, either (Poor and paranoid arent really a good combination :/)

    If you don't shoot any very often, please don't select an option as it messes the accuracy of the results
