Vista is the latest consumer negative film by AGFA, which incroporates a 4th colour layer. It got top test results in the European photo press, for example it was number one for ISO 100 colour films in one of the German journals.

Agfa announced a special 100 ASA film as replacement for Ultra 50 a few months ago. But it seems to have been cancelled, maybe because of weak response from dealers and customers. So, at the moment, there is no real equivalent to Fuji Velvia and Kodak EC in the negative film business. From the mentioned films, gold 100 and superia 100 are known for saturated colors.

Hi there:

Konica Impressa 50 is the finest grain sharpest colour neg film available with very good saturation. Great stuff, as Konica films are, in my not so humble opinion, vastly underrated.

Thats all folks
