Anyone who has used Fuji Velvia in their life knows that it is one of the greatest films ever developed. It took kodak 20 years to come up with its rival E100Vs and still the tone and color values of Velvia was unmistakable. Not everyone would have had the need for the super saturated colors it produced or its 50 ASA but it had an iron constitution, you could do anything to it and it still reproduced amazing images. With the advent of digital and most editorial shooters taking up neg, it seemed to just slip away but word from Japan is its back, with ASA 50 emblazoned on the front, not to confuse it with the quite generic 100 speed they have. As with all large format there's a kicker, as of now its only available in Japan from Megapearls webshop and its 16,432Yen a box of 10. OK $142.60, not for the feint of heart.
