    E100G vs E100vs for autumn?

    Hi all

    I have shot E100G recently and loved the look, got a week of autumn colour shooting coming up this month and I am wondering if it is the right film to take or if E100VS might be a better choice? I know VS has more saturation but concerned that it is probably a lot more contrasty as well and whether that might be an issue on sunny, contrasty days?

    I thought I could maybe take some of each, perhaps use the VS on the overcast days and the G on the sunny days? Or should I just take VS and be done with it?

    If someone was to ask you which you would take for autumn foliage, which would you take?

    Thanks

    Chris

    My first choice for autumn foliage would be E100VS. It actually handles the contrast of sunny days quite well, I've found. In that regard, I prefer it over something like Velvia 50, which always seems to give me either empty shadows or blown highlights on a sunny day.

    I also like that E100VS doesn't give me a blue cast in overcast conditions, like Velvia 50 tends to do without something like an 81B filter in front of it.

    I've tried Velvia, I really have, but I just can't seem to get on with it.

    E100VS has a slightly warmer look than E100G. It depends if you want to go for saturation or accuracy.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    I'd opt for G or, better yet, GX if you can find some after the '09 discontinuation.Not sure what NZ fall colour looks like but VS wasn't flattering to the pumped fall colour here in Ontario, Canada. G with a warming filter is another option.

    Why not use both and compare.

    E100GX.

    I think most of the world's remaining stock is in my freezer.

    Not counting mine, of course.

    I don't think our fall colour looks as good as the stuff in the Northern hemisphere but it's still pretty decent apparently.

    Shall give this some thought. Quickly as I need to order shortly....

    Quick question - would a skylight filter count as a warming filter? I have one here, I use it to keep my 50mm lenshood from falling off my the RB, and it does look slightly warm, but I tried G with and without and didn't see much difference
