greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Anyone has infos about the technology involved in lates films ? Would Provia 100 F, Velvia 50 or E 100 S finer than EPR 64 ?

frankly, bruce, with the films you mention, the issue is really not grain structure, it is color saturation and depth. each of those films are very fine films, and it really depends on which film appeals more to you personally in terms of hues and color balance. it also has something to do with what type of work you do - each seems to have its strength in a different area.

Yes, all three will be less grainy than Ektachrome 64. Provia 100F will have the finest grain but Velvia will be the sharpest.
