I've just watched my first roll of Velvia D50 and what can I say! I'm impressed!!

The sharp image, deep colours and ultra fine grain (almost completely absent on the footage I shot on a 1014XL-S) make Ektachrome 64T look like a grainy mush in comparison. And I had no problems with jitter considering the thicker film stock.

Its just a shame Velvia Super 8 isn't (to my knowledge) available in the UK.

Yes, I love 50D too! I don't know why other people hate it. Circus Crome, or Disney Chrome they call it. The colors are so much more lively that 64T. Yup, even with my 1014 xls, 64T is flat and dead.

I agree... the Velvia looks great. You won't get that look anywhere else. It's not Kodakchrome, it has it's own look.

If you want perfect color stick with negative stocks and pay an arm & a leg for a good transfer.
