Slide film is wicked cool. And it's extra cool on medium format because each exposure is a pretty sizable little picture ready to be viewed with the help of a lit white background. Note, by cool I mean 'awesome.' No one would seriously wonder which definition I meant, but I was chatting a certain someone earlier about how "cool" the Provia results were, and what followed went something like this:
J: As in high white balance temperature
Or in a good way?
J: That's a legitimate question!
So I figured I'd clarify.
I guess the problem with slide film is you have a lot less room to screw up. If you overexpose, that's no bueno. If you underexpose, that's no bueno either. There's much more freedom with print film. Oh yeah, and slide film costs more to develop. Oh well, I still think the results are neat and really want to try the Provia 400x (these results are from the Provia 100f). I've got some Astia in the Contax right now so I have that to look forward to for now.
I don't need to explain Abraço and my addiction, right? :)
