    I'd use these for neg...
    Fuji 160s for daytime, Kodack 160NC for night

    Fuji NPZ (thats the name think) 800 for hand held lowlight.

    For Chromes its a personal choice and if you are not used to shooting with the film some (like Velvia, 100vs) can make you insane. Astia, e200, any of the other kodak 100's are less tempermental. Provia 100 and 400 can be wonderful and would fall between the velvia and 100vs and the other films for most forgiving or easiest to use when not sure.

    Dear Joshua,

    "What's the preference for printing from scans?"

    A good scan of either would give you a good print. My little film scanner Minolta Dimage Scan Dual III) seems to like the density range of negatives more than slides, but it really isn't a great scanner. Don't forget the print set you get back from a roll of negatives is nice for an album.

    Freestyle has it in 35mm and 120 sizes. I've never tried it, though, so I can't comment on what it's like.

    I did a search on the forums and apparently Roger Hicks has tried out the rollei scanfilm stuff. Maybe another 1-2 people have mentioned they tried it I think. It's not too hideously expensive so I might give a roll a go sometime once I get set up for c-41 processing at home.

    Rollei Scan film is a funny bird...it has a clear base that is supposedly better for scanning than traditional color negatives with the brown tinge. The thing is, scanning software already compensates for that brown tinge just fine for the most part, so it kind of renders that notion a bit moot. The image itself has a very retro look, very 1960's-era color...nothing like the current Porta (Kodak) and Pro (Fuji) lines.

    i use velivia 100F and love it. i owuld say bring a C41 film a bit faster so you can hand hold in less light. you have the velvia for your tripood stuff. a bit of 160, 400 and 800 is what i would bring. the 800 is really useful for low light markets. it is fast becoming one of my favorite and most used C41 film. if you do not want to bring all those films you could leave out the 400 and use the 800 or leave out the 160 and use the velvia. i always bring LOTS of film when i travel. you can always bring it home, but your favorite films are always hard to find in 3rd world countries.

    Even though it isn't a pro negative film, Fuji Superia 100 is still a fine colour print film. I believe that it is also available in 200 and 400 ASA also.
