And even better are the new Kodak E100 films, 100SW, 100VS and 100S.  I tend
to shoot mostly 100SW and 100VS.  Velvia is just way too contrasty for my
tastes and I have shot untold thousands of rolls of Velvia over the last 6
years...the magazine company I worked for only shot velvia...finally just
before I quit I got them to start shooting some Kodak films.

I really like those new Kodak chromes and the new Portra ain't bad either.
