    10x8 colour

    OK, I have a project in mind that means I might just sucumb to the garish charms of colour..... This is after saying I would never shot colour again....

    I want to do this on 10x8, will do some experiments in 5x4 first but any suggestions for a rich but not to over the top colour film (neg or tranny)?

    Ektachrome 64T (EPY) is, in my always humble and unbiased opinion, the best product Kodak makes. It has as long a scale as Tri-X, no trace of the harshness so prevalent in most chrome films, and perfect color balance. The chromes you get with it are beautiful in every way.

    Is this an indoor or outdoor project?

    I've used Fuji Provia 100F on landscapes with my 8x10 and I'm happy with my results.

    Good point, will mainly be indoors with natural light and maybe some fill flash from a soft box

    I would use Fuji Provia 100F in that case, much more accurate colors. If you were doing outside landscapes then I would suggest Fuji Velvia 100F - the saturation isn't as high as the old 50, but, still good.

    Well, did a ring around,

    Fuji supplier, minimum order, 20 Boxes!

    Kodak only has Portia 160 NC and that comes in on order, no minimum, which is good, but no idea as to how long it will take....

    Any one in Austraila know if I can get Provia in 10x8 sheet there?

    Try ordering from Calumet in the US or in the UK. The US site has Provia 8x10 (50 sheets) in stock, a bit pricy - $384.99 USD + shipping. The UK site has Provia 8x10 (10 sheets) in stock for £68.70 + shipping.

    Might go down that track yet. Thanks for looking it up for me.

    Now, have you booked those NZ tickets yet... :-)

    Not yet. I got an email from Travelocity today, with airfares at $800, which is great, but only good through November. I can't possibly come before January - partly because I wouldn't have a job if I did. Hmm, wonder if they need programmers in NZ.
