for those who want "the best bang for the buck":
The new AgfaPhoto CT 100 Precisa.
This new version is made by Fujifilm (the former was from Kodak).
This new version has been intensively tested by lots of film experts.
I have tested it also, and compared it to all other ISO 100 color slide and color negative films.
All who have tested this film so far came to the same conclusion, that this emulsion is almost identical to Provia 100F. It is either the Fuji Trebi 100 (Japanese amateur version of Provia), or Provia 100 batches, which are not 100% identical to Provia QC norms.
No matter what it is, it is very hard to distinguish the results of CT Precisa from Provia 100F.
This film has finer grain, and much better resolution and sharpness than Reala, Pro 160C, Ektar, Portra 160.
It also surpasses Efke 25 and Ilford PanF+ in detail rendition.
That are not only my results, but also the test results of scientific tests from other experts (e.g. Antora, Garnier, Mueller, Serger, Ventzke, Petrovic).
It's not surprising, because reversal film has been the prefered film in professional use for decades because of its better detail rendition (and because you always have an exact color reference for the scan and print).
Color reproduction is very neutral and accurate with this film. It has not the warmer tendency of most Kodak films.
If you want that, it is very easy, just use a Skylight 1A or 1B filter.
This excellent film is offered extremely cheap: In dm drugstores the double pack with two films is offered at only 6,45€!!
Much cheaper than any other top quality ISO 100 film.
