If my math is right, there are at least 13 people on earth still shooting Provia 100F...

Make it 14  

I've even been known to shoot Sensia.  I'd like to get a head count for that film too

I shot a roll of Sensia a few weeks back in my Ricoh GR1. It is still sitting in the mailer. The second roll jammed on frame 4, and the GR1 has been taken out and shot.

I have to ask: What did you shoot the GR1 with?  A digital???

Make that 15! I shot over a dozen sheets of 8x10 Provia/Velvia this weekend and loved every minute of it. There's just something about a view camera and seeing a well exposed transparency that I can't step away from. But don't get me wrong. I also shot a heck of a lot more digital shots on Saturday. So, I pick and choose the camera depending on my subject and mood.

I switched from film to fully digital only two years ago (from Canon to Nikon, the opposite of Michael, it appears), so I remember it (using film) clearly, but I can't see myself EVER going back.  Changing ISO on the fly, looking at histograms to adjust exposure, no film grain, no trips to the photo lab, no ten-minutes-per-image film scanning, etc. etc. etc....

LOL!  

I did like Michael -- shot Nikon film cameras for over 20 years, then switched to Canon just prior to transitioning to digital, but in anticipation of going digital.  However, like you Lisa, I cannot see going back to 35mm or even MF film.  

4x5 is another issue -- there are still things a view camera allows you to do that no SLR, D or otherwise, will never be able to accomplish.  I am really stoked about the possibilities of using the newer 39MP backs on my view cam.

~~~

As for the shot -- Michael, it remains an incredible image!  I wonder though what it would look like if you had captured it today with all the DR your digital cameras give you... Would you have processed it so the shadows remained so dark or maintained similar saturation?

Cheers,

I've shot Sensia.  Even Sensia 800 or was it 400 on occasion.  I still have about a dozen or so rolls of Velvia 50 in the fridge.  I was just thinking the other day, "How am I ever going to get rid of that Velvia?"

I still love looking through my old slides when I get a chance to do so.

On my most recent visit to Monument Valley I found a roll of Velvia medium format (120) "abandoned" on top of a road sign next to the main overlook.  Certainly, someone could have forgotten it, and someone else placed it there. But, it may also be a strategy to dispose of unwanted film.  eBay also works, but you have to pay fees, create listings and ship to buyers.  The Mt. Valley overlook approach is easier.

Like Alain I am still happily shooting film - Velvia 100 (not 100F) in my case. As you will see from my article posted today, I still find large format film the best tool for the job and for my business.

I could probably surpass my prints by using the P45 in a lateral 2 image stitch, but $40K plus could be spent on an awful lot of film, travel, prints etc. Film is simply more profitable for me.

So, add me to the Velvia list.

BTW Nick, GREAT review of the new Horseman digital SW!  It showed how great 39MP of direct digital capture can be.

I got to play with that camera at my local retailers the other day and as nice as it was, I also came to the conclusion that I could process and even drum scan a LOT of 4x5 tranny for $40,000 -- and more like $50,000 for me by the time I bought all the lenses I'd want.  

So like you and Alain, I am sticking to 4x5 film for my critical work -- at least for the time being -- but in my case I prefer the broader latitude of Astia for scanning  

Cheers,
