    What do you guys think of this film, any pictures you could post would be great.
    I rarely shoot color film, when I do it's usually Superia 200 or 400. I buy it in the conveniently cheap four pack, because it's cheap, but very acceptable results.

    I like the results that I have gotten from Fuji Superia 400, I really want to try out some Kodak Portra 400.
    There are a few choices out there though!

    What's the difference between slide film and negative film?

    Negative film gives you a negative. The tones are reversed (shadows are clear, whereas highlights are solid, and the colours are both heavily masked orange, and reversed - red in the original scene are cyan in the negative, greens in the original scene are magenta in the negative, etc.

    You need to either scan and invert a negative or (ideally) print a negative to get a recognizable final product. Until recently, the films you saw in a movie theatre were almost inevitably edited to a negative, and then printed on projection stock.

    Slide films give you a positive as a final product. Ideally you project or view a slide directly, although you can print them (Ilfochrome - costly, discontinued, but special) or scan them and print from the scan.

    If you have never seen a well projected slide, you should seek one out.

    Slide film is more demanding when it comes to exposure - similar to digital.
