    Interesting review on Velvia film, and it sounds like he both loved and hated it, which is sort of the way I feel. Definitely a “no” film for skin tones or any subject that’s going to be primarily people, and a “yes” film for landscapes. It was actually one of the first E-6 films to be tested sharper than Kodachrome, but he neglects to mention that Kodachrome ‘s actual developing process was far more archival and impervious to fading and change than any E-6 film. If you’re a film shooter, use it before we lose it!
