    anyone have suggestions for a neutral color film for copy work?

    anyone have suggestions for a neutral color film for copy work ... i'm going to be making copies of olde family photos and i want to shoot them in color.

    i don't want to use tmax 100, as i have in the past for copy negatives, since these prints have tints & color-nuances that won't be picked up with a straight black and white film.

    Its a little late, but I'd use epy for tranies and portra 100T for neg's and shoot the work with hot lights (diffused hologen's).

    Or use strobes and use 160nc or epn or epr.
