    Reciprocity Failure starts at 4 seconds. I'd probably choose a slower neg film, Reala (reciprocity, 4 seconds) or Ektar (1 second). The best films I've used for night stuff were Provia (128 seconds) and Acros (120 seconds).

    I use Superia 400, 800 and 1600 for night shots and like the results. Colors are strong and with 800 & 1600, you can shoot handheld...

    I wish Superia 1600 was available in 120 format...
