Panoramic Cameras and Velvia

Many of these were taken with Velvia, 100 and 50. I love the Velvia look, though the strong blue sometimes gets on my nerves. I love my Fuji TX-1 (Hasselblad X-Pan) and have a lot to learn! BUT, I hate developing E6 slide film, for colour I use a two bath kit, and for B&W a monobath, yep, I am basically lazy! Then I get to Velvia and it's back to a 6 bath kit! Oh my god, I actually need to do some work. And on some early spring rainy days slide film just doesn't have the exposure latitude that C41 based film does, and to make matters worse there can be up to 5 stops of exposure across a pano! So, the big decision is that once I have shot all my Velvia I won't buy any more. Kodak Ektar 100 is just awesome and suits my lazyness, and Fuji Pro 400H will done fine when it is dull. Kodak, bring Kodachrome back, I will happily send you lots of rolls and let you run the process and for that matter do the scanning!

Thanks Yashil, I struggled a bit with the colour, but I think it showed Western Australia on a stormy spring day. Brett
