This was processed in Nikon NX and Nik filters Sunshine filter. I was going for the Velvia look and I think I nailed it. Some may not like this but occasionally I like to see that vivid Velvia look. :blink: B) Jim

I think itīs a matter of personal taste and if vivid blues and greens are what Felvia produces you really nailed it.

Virg Velvia is Fuji's legendary slide film it was so popular when they stopped making the 50 ISO version there was an uproar last year and they reintroduced it. Landscape photographers love it for its extremely vivid blues, greens and reds. I am sure it is the most vivid of all the slide films. Jim From Fuji: "The latest Fujichrome, Velvia 100 film carries on the tradition of vivid color and intense saturation of Fujichrome Velvia 50." "Velvia 50 is back. The original Velvia product provides the High Saturation and Vivid color that has become a Favorite of Photographers. Velvia 50 will begin shipping in the summer of 2007. "

I never liked Velvia myself, unless I was trying to impress those who love bright colours - like Japanese clients. ;). I was more of an Ektachrome Pro 64 (at least I think that's what is was called :P ) man myself. Anyway it looks like you got the look.

"Velvia 50 is back. The original Velvia product provides the High Saturation and Vivid color that has become a Favorite of Photographers. Velvia 50 will begin shipping in the summer of 2007. "

The reason for stopping the production was they where out of one of the materials used to make the film. They have since made a new material to replace the old one. You can actually get the new velvia 50's where I live. If you really need some, email: toto@antoniostasi.com

Jim -- You DEFINITELY got that Velvia look. Personally I like Velvia for landscapes and nature. Not so great for people pics. Dave -- Velvia is about a particular rendering designed to evoke a particular reaction to vivid color; it's not about just recording reality. For the latter, Kodachrome 64 or Astia would likely be a better choice. Don

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy.

Yes Don, as I have said before these are consumer films for recording Aunt Elsie in less than perfect conditions, making it look like she was photographed during high summer on the Costa Brava rather than during a wet week in Manchester! The punters used to just just love such larger than life renditions which make their dull weather holiday snaps look as if they were taken in expensive exotic locations! Obviously a film designed for normal British weather, not sunnier climes! Probably the reason too that most consumer digital cameras are still set straight out of the box to produce more vivid colours than pro or prosumer ones. The colour rendition is biased to the market segment they are aimed at. Dave Whiteley

One thing Velvia is considered a professional film by Fuji and is priced that way. Velvia is definitely not a consumer grade film. You will not find it listed under the consumer films on Fuji's website but under their professional line of products. Their consumer slide film is the Sensia line. Jim

Yes, velvia was a pro film. Had it keep it cold or you would lose the color. It is NOT Ken rockrells version of saturation. It was landscaps becuase it had a very nice redering of grees. It had very littele affect on blue skies, but blue has green in it, some affect was noted, but not exterm. If you had velvia, and a poleriser, you could turn a reallu blue sky very dark, near a black blue. You had to be carefule. For Dave, didn't you say it was gray and raining over the pond? Velvia might make it look like sunny ol England again! ;-)

Thanks, Dennis.

Velvia also makes macro greens GREEN (not yellow-green), and has a nearly perfect balance between boldness and subtlety. I'm just guessing here, but I think this is where the name "Velvia" comes from -- a reference to velvet. It intensifies color and emboldens it, but it certainly doesn't warm it up. If you shoot greens in Macro on a cloudy, rainy day, you will be more aware of the overcast with Velvia than with other less saturated films. It even makes silver clouds intensely silver without altering the color cast. Velvia is neither garish nor cartoonish to my eye. The old Agfa-50 print film was, to the point that it blocked up the reds pretty badly, but Velvia is not. To get this back to digital and Nik filters, do any of these packages have a set of curves that overtly mimic, say Velvia, Kodachrome 200, the old Provia 100 and other films. Now that K-200's days are past, I'd like to be able to get that same rendering in a digital camera. Even a set of charts that have the custom settings (curves, etc.) on them would work. Thx, Don

You would have to check out nik... I don't remember very well, but I think they have. I know that Dox (dxo) has the kodacromes.
