    Some Velvia 50 shots

    These few are from my first couple of `120 rolls of Velvia 50 taken with my Bronica S2A
    I have discovered metering accurately with this film is critical, although most shots have come out reasonably well exposed.
    I am fairly sure I used a warming filter on the first three photos.

    Cheers.

    Thanks - The price per shot makes you stop and think about things a bit more!

    I really like the composition and subject of the first 2. Pitty about the guard rail (?) in the first one.

    Anyway, great shots, and i agree about taking your time with film. Its good to think before you just snap away 100 shots like on digital

    May have to pull the 4x5 out soon to burn some Velvia after seeing these. They come to about $12-15 per shot, no scan.

    I would love to have a crack at 4x5 - not sure if my wallet would appreciate it though!
    Although I am sure that once looking at them, it would be worth it.

    They do come up stunning, but it gets hot under the cover in summer

    Thanks Leigh!

    David - do you buy in bulk lots? From what I have seen, freight is the main killer - if I could get an order freighted for about $20 US is would be worthwhile, most are around $45-$60 though

    Hi Leigh

    I did tell a slight fib, I buy Foma 5x7 of Chris Reid at Blanco Negro, he is almost on par with the US with his price for the Foma.

    Not really in bulk, as an example I would buy, 2 packs hp5 5x7, 2 packs 4x5 velvia 50, 1 pack of acros 4x5, 2 packs of 5 of velvia 35mm, 1 pack of 5 of velvia 120, and around 15 assorted rolls of 35mm B&W films.
    Velvia 35mm here is around $20 a roll, over there it's about $7 per roll, the last time I got charged $53 for freight, I am still in front, compared to if I bought it here.

    Regards
    David
