It seems that a new Super 8 filmstock is available from France. I Wonder if it is really a new kind of films or just a new packaging of a already available one. Anyway, it costs 39,65 € (process not included). Following the technical sheet, it has wonderful colours. As anyone already test it ? http://www.super8france.com/contents/fr/d4_films-super-8-developpements_pack_super8.html

Could be Velvia 50?

I don't know, Maurizio. I understood that the Velvia 50 was repleaced by the Velvia 100 but that the Velvia 100 is no longer available.My informations may be wrong or incomplete.

Perhaps they stocked in a large quantity of Velvia when available and now they are offering it to the public. I must say the price seems pretty reasonable to me compared to what Wittner is charging for his Agfa 200 (which - how could I say that politely??? - well, erm... sucks).
Perhaps if someone asks them privately they might admit to that. Are you planning to use it? If so, post your impressions!

I was waiting for some feedback before trying it. I still have some Cinevia cartridges. The Agfa 200 is too grainy and not, in my opinion, useful for normal shooting (probably nice if there is not enough light).

I agree, DOminique.
