What’s it really like? (the quick version)
It can be a bit picky to shoot but as long as you control your exposure and bracket your shots when in difficult lighting conditions, you’ll be fine. It’s a rich, beautiful film, which gives your images tons of depth, lovely tones and exudes a feeling of professionalism and experience. In that respect, it can’t be faulted.
Personally, I’ve learned to shoot this film at ISO 125 for the best results but your location, the light and time of day may lead you to shoot otherwise. If you’re shooting this film for the first time, bracket your exposures at ISO 80, 100 and 125 and see what you get.
It might not handle all skin tones with as much ease as Velvia 100F but if you need that extra stop over Velvia 50 and demand a similar look, then there’s no real competition (yet).
