Thanks Russell, but I'm slightly confused now. You say you shot it for
years - I thought that Velvia 100 was relatively new on the market (as in
this year). Just had a quick scrounge on the web and it seems they release
different films in different countries at different times! In some forums I
have seen mention of a Velvia 100 (RVP100) and a supposedly different
Velvia 100F (RVP100F). On Aus, UK, US and German FujiFilm web sites (can't
read Japanese unfortunately), though, I can only find mention of good old
Velvia 50 (RVP) and the Velvia 100F (RVP100F). All those sites refer to the
100F as 'new' (without bothering to put a date on the page, mind you).
Maybe 100F has supeceded 100? Or are these forum people talking bollocks? I
suspect that the best answer is that I should stop worrying about it, stop
looking for distractions and get back to work so that I can hurry up and go
on a holiday!!! But of course I'd much rather be put straight on this!
