We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at B&H.com.




I enjoyed the video. I buy the majority of my film from B&H. I continue to shoot film with my Canon A-1 which I bought new 34 years ago and a used Canon F-1N bought used in 2013. A year and two days ago, I entered the digital world when a Canon 5D Mk III arrived from B&H.
Question: I'm going to the 2015 Masters Golf Tournament practice round (cameras allowed for practice). I like Kodak Ektar 100 for its color. For the scenic photos of that stunning golf course, I was thinking about using Kodak Ektar 100. Should I consider Fuji slide film instead?

I can’t speak for Allen, but Fujichrome Velvia is a personal favorite of mine.  If you can, you might try a roll or two before you go to the tournament to see how you like it.  It definitely has a different aesthetic to Ektar, but I find that Velvia truly shines for landscapes, so could be great for scenic shots on the course: both blues and greens really pop with this film stock.
