    Provia 400X in 4x5 - would you be interested?

    I may sound a bit odd to ask this question at the time when Fuji just announced discontinuation of many films, but still - here it is:

    Would you be interested in the Provia 400X in large formats? (4x5 or even bigger?) If yes or no - why?

    Currently the only ISO 400 film available in 4x5 is Kodak 400NC.

    Reportedly 400X responds rather well when pushed to ISO 800 - 1600.

    I found myself preferring slides to negatives and sometimes to get 2 more stops helps to reduce the wind or impact of the subject movement. So my answer is - YES - it would be my main slide film for 4x5. The grain is fine enough for large prints even form smaller formats and color palette compares very well to Provia 100F.

    so - what is your opinion?

    and no, I use negative more than positive
    Theory: you understand why it should work but it doesn't
    Practice: it works but you have no idea how
    Here theory and practice meet, things don't work and I don't know why

    I am wondering whether it was the improbability of the Provia 400x being release in 4x5 that led to so few votes ...

    Absolutely, I would buy a ton of it.

    However, I would prefer Pro 800Z!
