    I never really liked Velvia 50. Too slow for insect photos. My favorite slower film is still Kodachrome 64...

    For my taste, I'd go for any of the following:

    Provia 100F
    Kodak E100GX
    Kodachrome PKR 64 (YES it takes time to develop, but the colours are UNIQUE)

    Ektachrome 64T (aka EPY). For my money it's the best film manufactured today and the best product Kodak makes.

    This film is tungsten balanced....

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I think Mark is shooting 4x5. This would make all the recommendations for Kodachromes lees than pertinent.

    Well, if he's shooting using anything else other than 35mm, PKR/PKL (Kodak's Kodachrome series-K14 proccess) are useless

    You are not the first to recomend this to me. What filter do you use to balance it for daylight use?

    You could use EPR or EPN the daylight brothers of EPY. These films are very neutral/natural colour films. They do not add much contrast or punch, unlike the others mentioned. They also exhibit more grain the others.

    Nah. Grain bad. If I wanted grain I'ld shoot 35mm.

    85B. If you are shooting 4 x 5, that is all the more reason to use EPY, as it's available in Readyload format.

    It has much less contrast and a much longer scale than it's daylight brethren. Even other Kodak tungsten balanced chrome films (such as 160T) are harsh by comparison.

    That is very true. It is also one of the reasons many use it for copy work (that and the natural rendition of colour). It also has some of the best reciprocity characteristics of any chrome you could use.
