This poll is intended to Camera 8 participants only. If you would like to participate in Camera 8, there may still be a few open spots, so please read below.

Hey All:

Sile asked me to survey the participants in Camera 8 for film preferences among these three:

1) Tri-X
2) Ektar 100
3) or a 400 Speed Color film - perhaps Portra 400VC.

I will purchase two rolls of the winning film early next week from B&H, and send one Sile for loading into the Canon. I will load the Nikon. Hopefully these cameras can be rolling very shortly!

I believe there are still some open spots for these cameras, so please get a hold of Sile through the official Camera 8 thread titled "Dare I say...Camera 8?".

Before answering, do we have a theme for the camera(s)? If it's to be Tri-X, what EI & developer are we using?

Personally I'd prefer Pan-F, KB-25 or RVP50, though I don't really know the capabilities of the chosen cameras and they all require fairly accurate metering.

Maybe some Portra would be a good all-'round choice that's hard to get wrong.

Thanks for this Shawn! I voted portra.. but needless to say I'd vote for pen and paper if I thought it would get home safe and sound!

Hey all - I just realized what a flawed poll this is!! It should have been two choices: 1) B&W 2) Color.

I am such a dork for splitting the color vote!

But hey - let's see what pans out by next week. Then off to B&H I go to buy the winning film.

Or perhaps it could have been by camera? Although without the final list for each one that wouldn't really work.

(Nothing like adding more confusion to the mix!;))

I voted for Tri-X because it was the only b&w option. Optimally, TMY or FP4 would be my choice.

Leave it to us baffoons to come to an apparent tie on film choice. The tiebreaker goes like this: Sile chose Portra, so that pretty much decides it, wouldn't ya' say?

Excellent choice... the tie was inevitable.. anything straight forward with regards to the travelling cameras would just be wrong!
