    Question:
    What, in you varied opinions, is the best colour neg film for bright, vibrant landscapes?

    I'm heading off to Thailand / Phuket soon and am looking for a film that will produce the brightest, most colourful sunsets as well as handling the high contrast of the midday sun on the beach. Have looked at Kodak Supra 200 so does anyone have any opinions of this film?

    I would normally be using Kodak Elitechrome Extracolour on a trip like this but just want the convenience of prints in this case.

    I've been getting really saturated stuff on NPH a little over exposed. I have never gotten it before you might try it.

    Try a roll or two of Kodak UC100 and UC400 before you go.

    Agfa makes a great ultra saturated film, it replaced their ISO 50 Ultra, the ISO 50 was almost like looking at a slide, the new Ultra 100 is really good for vivid greens and reds, you might check a roll out before you leave.

    The UC films by Kodak, Fuji Reala (rated @50), Agfa Ultra 100 and Fuji NPC are the ones I would try

    Ultra50 was over/hyper saturated! Is the Ultra100 anything like that? I haven't tried it yet. Martin Parr used Ultra50 for a lot of those incredible ubersaturated shots in Think of England - wonderful photographs.
