Source of Velvia 100?

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by harvey steeves, Aug 4, 2003.

  1. I am wondering if there is a North American source for Velvia 100 not
    the Velvia 100F but the film which is supposed to be available in Japan?

    Has anyone tried to import it themselves and if so, where did you import
    from, if I may ask?

    Adorama.com or B&H has it.

    I could be wrong here, but I was under the impression that Velvia 100
    (non F) has yet to be released, even in Japan. That said, I could
    easily be (and probably am) mistaken. If it *has* been released in
    Japan and isn't available as an import from B&H or Adorama, a few rolls
    will almost certainly end up on eBay. Good luck!

    Believe or not, Velvia 100 (no F) is supposed to be even *more*
    saturated that regular Veliva! I imagine that you'll have to view your
    slides indirectly in similar manner to viewing the eclipse. JK ;­)

    Is one better for people and another better for scenery or something?

    Neither are good for people. One has a high saturation, the other a
    very high saturation. That's all.

  8. somewhere, I saw mention that Badger Photo could be convinced to bring
    some in but that is something I may have to call them over. I don't
    know if it has been released in Japan yet, but gotta try.
