    Ekta100 for landacapes and Portra160 for people.

    But really, truly, the C-41 films aren't much less than the E-6 and I would stick with Provia100f if I were you

    I love Ektar when I'm looking for saturation, for example when I shoot landscape or cityscapes. I really like how reds and greens turn out. For portrait (skin tones) or when I need the speed I turn to Portra. Fuji Pro 400H is also a cool film!

    You asked a question that is 'impossible' to answer by anyone else but you.

    I say go look at samples.

    Is Reala available in GB?

    I think Reala is out of production in 120. They might still be making Fuji Pro 160s or 160c. I liked the 160c but not so much the 160s.

    For 120 I think the best are the Kodak's, Ektar for punch and Portra for flexibility. The Portra 400 is great from Iso 200-1600 and beyond.

    Fuji Pro 400h does not seem to like being under or overexposed by more than a stop either way.

    Fuji Reala is not current anymore, but is still available in many places.

    That said, if you can find it, *nothing* is even close to as good as Reala. My poor color filled heart literally wept the day that I learned Reala was gone.

    What a staggeringly beautiful film. The pinnacle of color negative film was reached with Reala IMO.

    Never shot it, I had two expired rolls given to my by an ex, but I traded them for some Eastman Double-X I believe.

    I wasn't into color as much then. Plus I was just tired of expired stuff.

    Oh well. I'm resigned to my Provia100f for people

    Beg, borrow, or steal some Reala before it is gone forever. Seriously, this is one AMAZING film. I loathe Fujifilm, absolutely loathe them for killing it off.

    Well, I double-loathe them for also killing Provia 400X and Astia. At least I have still 5 rolls of Reala 120, 5 rolls of Astia 120, and 3 rolls of 400X 120. The problem is shooting it on something really worthwhile.

    But back to the OP: I think Ektar is as close as you are going to get.
