    Although the end of civilization as we know it would be a bit of bad luck, I'm usually a pretty lucky guy, so I'd take a few rolls of Provia (I prefer more natural colors) with the Leica M6, leaving everything else behind (except survival gear, firearms and ammo). The luck comes in when I'd meet two groups of other survivors - one that had preserved a pedal-operated Jobo outfit, and another that had a supply of E-6 chems.

    Ralph, makes a good point. My colour material would be a set of windsor-Newton watercolours (large tubes) a No. 10 series 6 brush (or can I have many brushes?) and as much d'arches 300# cold press as I can carry. I'll leave the guns and ammo to those who know how to use them.

    I like Reala because it delivers bright, yet natural colors and isn't harsh on skintones. It's a good all-around film for those times when I don't know what I'll be shooting with a given roll of film.

    As pertains to your dire restrictions, and since there would be no processing available, it would have to be something Polaroid.

    Favorite color? Probably Provia in slide.

    This was posted in the "Color" Film, Paper and Chemistry" forum. Perhaps, Ed should have it moved.
    "Color film" what's color film??? When was it invented. After all these years I thought Black & White (and the intermittent shades of grey) were colors.... mmmmmm, could you recommend some books or seminars that would help me understand this abstract concept called color???
    Often wrong, but never in doubt!

    Which would it be? (past discontinued films count too)

    In that dire, worst case scenario, I would f*#k the film and take a box of Dove Bars!
