I found (in my R7 which uses DX) that I had to be very careful with exposure on Velvia or I would lose it. When bracketing (I do this a lot) I found that the "overexposed" bracket was often the best. So I now set my meters to 40 when using Velvia. This makes the "normal" bracket usually the best, with insurance on both sides. I have also read that George Lepp uses Velvia at EI 40. I know there are others but I can't remember who right now. Jim At 06:41 PM 7/14/98 +0200, you wrote: > >Jim, >I use almost exclusively Velvia myself.

Doing this with the M6 really overdoes it. I did not know that >Velvia was considered as "really ISO 40". Is this a generally accepted fact >or the result of your own experience ?
