Re: Velvia - everyone here should shoot a roll today

What you see in slides is "unprocessed." In order to get a decent print, you will have jump over many more huddles than a digital file would require.

Yes, low ISO is a problem (you practically need f2.8 to do

range is much broader, colours are more saturated (sky is actually
blue), the exposure is right and it does not take any
postprocessing to get all of these.

Of course, I would not scan it on any cheap scanner but if you view
it using a projector or even print on good paper, it is better. I
showed my digital pictures and the ones printed from Velvia (the
same subject) to the number of people and everyone pointed to
Velvia ones as better. The difference is shocking.

I recently shot a couple of rolls of Velvia 50 and was shocked how
much better the colours were (I had not done that for a year). I
have to spend quite a bit of time using C1 or PS to get colours
right when shooting digital. I was also surprised that the exposure
was right in every picture.

Yes, but how does film compare to the 20D at ISO 1600? How much
does it cost to get a roll of slides developed and mounted?

Both 35mm and APS sized DSLR have their place in my camera bag.
