This is a real shame that Astia is going, I like it the best of all the films I've used. It's super sharp and has the lowest grain of any film on the market to day.

I think Astia was unfairly treated by many photographers as they had heard it was only suitable for weddings and portrait work, but I find it great for landscapes. Who needs lots of contrast, give it a colourful scene and it will replicate it faithfully.

This sounds like the end of an era - or at least the beginning of the end. Sad

Yet another good film comes to past, and I am just getting over Kodachrome......Sad

I'd better get some rolls then, to put through my Rolleiflex and Bronica, before its too late.
