Mamiya 645 & some Fujichrome Velvia 100F …………

img005-EditSlide film has been a bit of a hit or miss for me over the years, back in the pre digital days I tried and mostly failed with most of my attempts at shooting slides.

Most probably as the subject matter I seemed to shoot was not really suited to the medium and I never really found the appeal that others did.

img004Since getting into medium format I decided to give slide film another bash so bought a few packs of both Fujichrome Velvia 100f and Provia 100f.

I shot some Velvia a while back and cross processed it with some interesting results which can be seen on my other blog

But this time I had it processed E6 at AG photolab

img010I was quite pleased with the resultant scans even though my exposure was a bit over on most of the frames, I’m not sure if it was the Mamiya meter as it has been fine on negative film but I know that slide film is not very forgiving.

Nevertheless I am going to try another roll when the weather is right and this time meter with my Sekonic meter just to see.

  1. Not sure if you know this, but slides act like digital in that it is better to underexposed than over. Going over works better with negatives because you can burn the image in post to regain some of what was not visible. With slides it’s easier to pull information from the shadows than the highlights.

  2. Do you have a light metering prism for your 645? I hanker after one for my M645 super, but till I have come completely to grips with the camera (new to me a couple of months ago) I don’t want to spend more on it, so light meter or Sunny 16 for now.

      1. I am still getting used to a bigger camera (one that has no strap, yet – that is one thing I am ordering is the hard to find lugs for a strap) and so juggling a light meter and camera together takes some learning.
