        Thanks, Kevin and Joel. I'm sure it has to be a good film - I 
have three more rolls to try of my "Trial Version", so I'll know 
better soon.
        I agree about Provia F greens being bluish in cold light. I 
actually prefer the colour of lowly Elite Chrome 100 under those 
conditions. I never liked Velvia all that much, except in really flat 
light, but I have seen some great results from it.

        Thanks, Lloyd, I would have thought that too, except the 
Provia 100F in the same tank was great. Do you find the new bleach 
different from the old? It's certainly lighter in colour. I will be 
remixing for the next batch, so we'll see what happens.
        Thanks also for the processing tips. I'm not sure I can use 
all of them in my simple two-reel tank process, but some of them may 
be helpful. I felt the old 1-gallon kits were better, somehow, 
certainly a lot easier to mix in smaller volumes and I never had 
these odd problems with them. Any idea why Kodak changed them? I've 
been using E6 since 1977 (or whenever it came out), and there heve 
been a few changes over the years.
