 Thanks Tina,

I have only used Velvia once.  How do you rate the film??? I notice some
rate it at 40. I haven't tried Sensia yet. I noticed that the Velvia was
very warm for people. I also notice that just about everything I see
published is Fuji now.  On reason I used K64 was the keeping qualities. I
have some 40 year old Kodochrome slides that are still very good.

I sold my Jobo processor a couple of years ago when I dismantled my dark
room - probably a bad decision.  I could still hand process it.
