          From what I've seen and read, this is a great film. I typically use B&W film, but when I use color, I look for a lot of contrast. Waiting to get my negatives back from the prepaid fuji mailers. Can't wait to see what I get! Let y'all know as soon as I get them.

          You can't beat this film for landscapes. Great color rendition and magically blue skies for a film with such limited dynamic range.

            The term high-resolution is thrown around a lot these days in the digital camera world. But you haven't seen anything until you've thrown a strip of Velvia onto a light table. It's now the only thing I want to shoot along with (please remove your hats) Kodak 400TX. Velvia's colors are, in a word, stunning. Resolution is FAR BEYOND my scanner's capabilities to accurately reproduce. And there's a certain magic inherent in the fact that the roll of positive images you're holding in your hand is the very same roll of film that was in your camera. Digital will not give you that. I was instantly addicted. I may need a 12-step program to quit.

              Use the film in my Bronica SLR and Rollei and Minolta TLR cameras.
              Nothing like a projected 120 film.
              Have to wait for the film to be processed.

              I wish and hope that B&H will continue to serve those of us in the film crowd for many years to come. My only wish is that they would seek to purchase lots of film from Kodak and Fuji, even if discontinued, as these lots of discontinued film will continue to sell! I often find myself searching multiple sites for film as B&H has a limited selection of what is still available now. Their service though is great. No complaints there.

                  I'm mainly an automotive photographer, so color is very important to me. You can't beat the end result that Velvia 50 gives you. Along with its fine grain and a medium format camera - you'll have results that will blow your mind.

                    Comments about Fujifilm RVP 120 Fujichrome Velvia 50 Professional Color Slide Film (ISO-50):

                    This is an outstanding Fuji product but needs careful metering. I have just used it with my Mamiya 645 Pro on the Island of St Helena with magnificent results. I doubt whether any digital camera can come close to the images projected onto a large screen; after all there are no pixels. Ideally one needs fast lenses in view of the low ISO speed; f2.8 of faster. The best results are using the Mamiya 80mm f1.9. However I have also achieved magnifient results with the Mamiya 55-110 f4.5 Zoom lens and the Mamiya 80mm Macro f4.0 on a tripod. A highly recommended film with magnificient colours that no digital can match - remember the RGB bit depth is infinite.

                                  This is a remarkable warm daylight balanced E-6 film; at ASA 50 it's virtually grainless with with a color saturation reminiscent of Kodachrome (tm). Although it has some exposure latitude this is best expended on the scene to be photographed while ensuring that the exposure takes place at exactly ASA 50; use a spot meter. The film also develops quite well with an E-6 kit at 100 degress F with a swirling agitation about every 30 seconds. I've been using the Velvia emulsion for many, many years both in 35mm and in medium format up to 6x9 cm.

                                        Until I can afford the Pentax 645D, I'll be using Velvia 50

                                                      This is one of the nicest transparency film money can buy. In 120 format, it just looks and feel gorgeous. The saturation makes it ideal for landscape and to enhance any colorfull situation. Not so great for portrait since it tends to give an orange tone to skin. But this is only a minor thing if you consider the great light color rendition of it. It has been the choice of many professionals for over a decade and, to this day, is still my choice for its quality, fine grain and also its price!
