Saw a post from Fuji that they will stop selling Velvia 100 in September in the USA. The reason given, is that one layer contains a harmful property according to the EPA. So that will leave slide film users with just Velvia 50 and Ektachrome. This does not affect anywhere else in the world. When I read the post and the notice from Fuji, my thoughts were ????

Don't forget Provia 100F. It is not as supersaturated as Velvia. In fact, it can be rated at ISO 80 and is then a good substitute for Agfa CT18 which is what I mostly used for the first 20 years I shot slides at all.  The colours look very natural when scanned or projected using my Rollei twin projector.

 

It is not the first time the EPA has overreacted to a very remote risk when using a product.

This sort of thing usually starts in California...
