So there I was thinking that after I run out of the discontinued Ektachrome 100G, I’ll switch back to Velvia 100F. However….
It appears the end is nigh. I strongly dislike “landscape photographer Velvia” - and even that is looking to be on shaky ground. I suppose at the last resort Provia 100F is usable, providing I don’t mind everything that’s supposed to be green looking blue.
So it looks like the long term options are:
- switch to negative film. I suppose Ektar 100 is still in production.
- switch to black & white, look artistic and only speak French
- give up
Probably it will be 3. I’ve got enough E100G to last until my next major project, I think. After that I guess I might sell the XPan while there’s still a demand for it. There really isn’t much logic any more in shooting slide film. I do realise that. But there’s more to like - and photography - than logic.
