    Hi Boydie

    I didn't know they made a Velvia 50F, they make a 100F, Fuji did stop making 50 for a while, until users demanded they continued making it, so it is still the same 50 as before, I still use both the 50 and the 100F, my choice for colour saturating is the 50.

    This is the decription Fuji has made for the 50 and the 100F.

    I buy mine from the USA, $7 per roll

    I just shot my first two rolls of 120 Velvia 50 - hope to get them in to be processed this week!
    One thing I would like to know though -is it best to expose for the shadows, or highlights, or somewhere in between when using this film?

    with b&w you expose for shadows, with slide you would blow the highlights out if you did this

    Always expose for the highlights when shooting transparency.

    Too right Fantasy!

    Mongo does not know what the 50F or 100F are like but the old 50 ISO Velvia is being tragdedly missed by Mongo since he all but gave up film.
