    uc100, is that a new film? No one here in the betherlands, invluding dutch postorder companies have it...
    Do you guys know a good website to order film, that will deliver to europe and is rather fast?

    Thanks Sam

    "professional" film, in my opinion is a marketing ploy. The pro part comes from the person using the film. I shoot both neg and transparency films but am in no way a professional. I shoot what I do because I like the look of the film. I have no doubt that there are folks on this forum who could pick up some consumer film and the images they get from it would kick the crap out of anything I can shoot with professional film.

    I don't agree about the marketing trick...

    And even if you're right, hypotethically(sp?), then consumer film is not so concistent as proffesional ones....
    A good photograher does not need to be a pro. A pro is just someone that earnes a living out of it. But a good photographer relies on what he knows and learned about a film. If he gets a complete different film. he
    will experience trouble....

    Game:

    I shoot mostly landscapes in 4x5 and 8x10 and use Portra VC for color work. I print on Kodak Ultra Endura in my own darkroom. This combination works well for me and produces results far better than I ever got with transparencies. Printing your own makes a big difference.

    Actually I am going to print on my own.
    I have the complete darkroom set up, and will be trying to make all work next weeks.
    I will always stick to NC, and it be most handy to have a kodak film as well for the more saturated work. Ultra color 100 seem more logical to me because NC and VC are rather close to eachother in terms of saturation and contrast.
    I will try Fuji reala too though, since I hear good stuff about that film.

    But does anyone here knows a good online store that sells kodak Uc100?
    (really is available were I live)

    Thanks Sam

    Actually profilms are only consistent within the batch. You will find different colorcasts from batch to batch (transparancy films). Pro's will shoot a testroll to determine wether to use a filter to compensate. My favorite color film in 35mm is Kodak Elitechrome 100 Extra color which I find more consistent and neutral than the Pro Ektachrome 100 VS. In color negs you are left in the hands of the lap and their mercy. They can screw up anything pro- or consumergrade. I guess that the latitude will cover up the differences between the two types.

    I've shot velvia, but slides are no option anymore. When I shot slides I noticed that they can produce awesome stuff... But I need prints, and I need them often. Slides are really no option for several reasons.

    (can someone maybe think of a good webstore though )
    best regards Sam

    Fotoimpex is another great webstore
