    What do you consider to be the best 35mm color negative film for pinhole work?

    Coke or Pepsi?

    I'd probably try to keep things neutral, either Portra 400 or 400h

    Not sure, but one with good reciprocity characteristics would be where I'd start lookin'.

    Ektar 100 is not at all bad for pinhole work if you like those vivid 'Ektar' colors. Another surprisingly nice film is Fuji Superia X-tra 400. This film needs overexposure. Fuji Reala 100 is really good as well.
