    Yes, the price perils of being a slider-shooter shooting on single pack rolls... Who else is keen on getting bulk rolls? Velvia 100 or Provia 400F? Maybe CP or Ruby will be keen to put in an order (their min order is like >30 cans) if we can round up some orders here.

    But what abt shipment fee? Will it still be cheaper per roll compared to local market price?

    Well, you can compare the price between bhphotovideo in the US & any stores that sell this film (Fujichrome Velvia 100) here. Then you know what I mean (or not ).

    Well E100VS gives slightly towards warm colors as no warm-up filter is required. As for Velvia 100 or 100F, they tend to be more towards green in color spectrum of the light temperature so when shooting landscape for example in the morning when there's slightly more blue in the light, a warm-up filter is required.

    Personally I'm still playing with these films and will like to settle on just one of them. So far I'm still happy with the results on Velvia 100F.

    OK I go check them out. FYI I shoot in medium format (120). Hopefully the US price is better too.

    The US shipping fee is pretty high even on a regular 10 - 14 days delivery.

    Sorry, no leh. If have, I will move to US already. Here quite stressful & less opportunities.

    Strongly agree with you. But we all can make our good foundations right here first before venture outwards.

    But you'll learn faster outside rather than here, right? Just look at almost all local talents who make a name outside first than come back here.

    Hey thanks Sam, it's ok though I probably will have time to go down and pick up what I need so there's no need to trouble yourself. Appreciate the offer though.
