I tried the Velvia 100F this past weekend and did not care for the results a lot. I was happier with the Provia 100F that I shot. Atleast for a while I will be shooting both K64 and Provia 100F but the more I see Provia the better I like the no grain factor. Having a finer grain rating than even K25 speaks wonders.

Sensia 100, Provia 100F (sometimes 400F) and Velvia from time to time.

<1999 --> Fuji Sensia
>1999 --> Fuji Provia 100F

I am thinking of switching to K******** (censored) after I switch to digital later this year. Digital for the action stuff and K64 for sideons

I have a general question about slide film versus negative film. I was reading this really bad book by Rick Sammon (?) about digital photography (he talks about himself, son, wife or son's friends on every page; It's rediculous.) He said though that negative film captures twice as much "information" as slide film (I guess that means details and colors?)...is that true? He also said that a DSLR's sensor cannot pick up as many colors and details as a cheap 10 single use camera...is that valid as well? Thanks a lot...

I just started on slides. Tried out Provia 100F and Velvia 50 (you need really good light to shoot with this one).

Getting a blue hue with the Provia 100, the Velvia 50 is magical with rich colors and good contrast.

Hi everybody,

I use Fuji Sensia 100 exclusively. Reason is that IMO the (slightly) higher quality of Provia 100F doesn't justify the (dramatically) higher price of this film. The Velvia ones are too much saturated IMO.

Ryan, he was probably talking about dynamic range, and yes, negative film is the best, followed by positive and then digital. It's basically the contrast range in which an object goes from white with no visible detail to black with no visible detail. Black and white negative film is the best.

Take the dark cockpit, bright outside scenario. Without a flash you are going to need a pretty good dynamic range to avoid a black cockpit or a blown out outside. With a really good negative film you will be able to get better results than with slides or digital. Problem with negatives is that much of the information is lost when it's copied onto paper.

The human eye is even better, that's why a dark cockpit, light outside can look ok but when photographed you'll have problems with over- and under exposure in the same photo.

This is why fill flash can be so good, it lightens up the dark parts of a scene and allows you to get it into the narrower range of the camera.

Have been using Provia 100F since 2000, and have been very satisfied with it. Have tried 400F, and it's not bad for low light situations. Also tried a roll of the new Velvia 100F, and wasn't pleased. Prior to mid-2000, shot Kodachrome exclusively.

Fuji Sensia 100 for casual shots (i can get a very decent price for a 3 roll pack, just 10.30 €). I use Provia 100F for "important" shots.

I would always use Provia 100F, but as mentioned before, price is much higher than Sensia, which gives a very nice quality indeed.

Just as PH-OTO said.

Digital for the action.
Slides for collection shots.
I used Sensia for around 6 months then I switched to Provia 100F... I'm currently not thinking in any other one.
Besides they are very cheap in MEX... They go around $4.50USD and if you go downtown you'll even get them for $3 USD... Quite nice after I had to pay so much in Europe for them Big grin

Provia gives you amazing colors:
