    Default Fujifilm Astia - Where to get?

    Anybody knows where can I get Fujifilm Astia slide film in Singapore? I hv cheked with major shops (CP, Rugby, Konata, Colour Lab, Fotohub....) but to no avail.

    What will be a good alternative slide film for outdoor portrait?

    These make people look overly red. I wouldn't recommend it for portrait usage.

    actually, provia still ok. its velvia dat will make a human look like something out of an andy warhol, pop-art like painting, IMO...

    I've tried my first velvia (which is still in my cam) taking macro shots and night scenes so far. Should be ok on the colour right?

    By the way how much is the provia 400 per roll? Cos i heard that the higher ASA for slide films, they cost much more. Last time i got my velvia 100 for $10.50 per roll.
