Visited the London 'Sky Garden' -- luckily it was sunny ! I took my 2002 Hasselblad 501CM loaded with some outdated Fuji Velvia 100F 120 size given by a Camera Club member. I rated it at 100ASA, using a Weston Master V and got some good snaps with the Zeiss lenses.

Raid his fridge Pete, because that's where he must be keeping it. Lovely Like 1 small .



I have a brick of a book called 'The Earth from the air' by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. It's all shot with Fuji Velvia 50. If you can pick it up at a reasonable price (mine was from a charity shop), it's great for a browse.

Really attractive those blues in sky from positive films. Saturated colors are the first thing why to shoot on such film by my opinion. Also contrast.

These are very nice! Good colours especially in the greens.

The first time I shot Velvia 100 (the new stuff), it looked like crap, and every image was very soft compared to my negative scans despite having virtually no grain (which meant I could sharpen it up plenty afterwards).
