    Film Poll for Camera 8 Participants

    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.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    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!

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?

    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.
