Are these the only reversal stocks in the world I can buy at present?

Ektachrome 100D color
2 Kodak B&W stocks: Plus-X and Tri-X


Any more? Fuji?

FOMA makes a B&W reversal film called R-100 in 16mm and regular 8
Filmotec makes a B&W Movie film that is advertised as negative or reversal.
Some firms in europe reperforate and repackage some Fuji E-6 colour stock in 16mm and or various 8mm.

Hey John,
Take a look at Fuji's new Eterna Vivid 160. It's neg but according to Fuji they're calling it a replacement for Velvia. It's gorgeous and I have to say does look a lot like reversal. Rich colors & more contrast than typical neg. It's an incredible stock if you like the reversal look b/c since it is neg it also has more dynamic range than reversal.

Vivid 160 in S16 is very grainy. I wasn't impressed. Now, 7285 is amazing. Sharp, minimal grain.

Does anyone have any S16 Velvia they can post?

I recently did a side by side test with the Vivid 160 and kodak 7285 reversal. I'm sorry to say but the Vivid doesn't come close to reversal.
Great colours and contrast....but just not the same.


David - I'll try and put up some stills from the Vivid

I need to shoot more 7285 that's for sure.... Super Stock! I was hoping someone had something posted on their site or somewhere showing Velvia S16 in action. I am interested in trying it if I see something I like....

In that case here is another shot.
This is underexposed at about 1-1 1/2 stops....the background is Egg Yolk.

Thanks Serge!

I (personally) need to see it in action... I'll wait for a Project I can take more chances with and order up some rolls. Then post an exposure question.. unless anyone has any advice now? Would love to see some Spots shot with it (Velvia).

... of course somewhere I probably have a demo DVD from Fuji :unsure:

Pleasure David.

I know what you mean though, its nice to a stock that has been worked. Rather than a promotional dvd that is there as a sales pitch.

John,

You (may) want to actually read a thread before responding.

Per your high praises, I tried Vivid 160 and my impression has been noted above :rolleyes: . The subject (for me) has moved onto S16 Velvia.

..and in another related thread I said I prefer 7217 to Vivid 160 in S16...

But, good to see you! What have you been up to?

Not looking to replicate the reversal look. I want to project on a big screen family films. The "real" way films should be watched. No magic in electronic version.
