Velvia 50 - Expired 2002

Postby alexvaras » Tue Jul 03, 2018 9:02 am

I did the test of this film, here are the settings:

I used ASA 25. The meter is accurate, incident light.

And started to shoot from what the meter said.

And start going up one speed at a time.

I post no more since they become already dark.

I think the two rolls like this I have I should use ASA 50 and use incident light metering, any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

I avoid shooting with expired Fujifilm, Alex. Past practice showed me it wasn't worth the bother.

Alex, the 1/4 sec @ f16 seems to be correct on my monitor. I would have used that lens at f8, where it is pin sharp edge to edge. From f11 to f22 it gets a little soft because of spherical aberration. Nice composition.

I said 1/2 sec @f16 due the histogram, more complete, I agree the 1/4 @f16 fits better with what I remember of that scene.
So if 1/4 @f16 correcting to f8 speed should be 1/15. Anyway its two stops more open that the meter said, if I rest one stop due the age still would be one more stop that meter said.
I will test the meter again with the different options I have around to see what happened.
Thanks for the tips

Alex, you don't know if the scanning was done with a calibrated system.
