    Need Film Recommendation.

    Hello,

    I am new to the forum. I did photography for quite awhile, and am returning after a hiatus since 1994.
    I am interested in trying a color print film, c41 process.

    My former favorite color films were transparency films:

    Kodachrome 25, 200 in 35mm format.
    Velvia 50 in 35mm, 120, 4x5.

    I am now using 35mm and 120.

    While I may on occasion do some "street shooting" or environmental portraits, the primary application will be landscapes.

    Sharpness and detail aree important.

    Thank you in advance for any recommendations.

    Do you still want to shoot colour ?

    Stick to the Fuji Velvia it's still about the best on the market.

    I would guess Portra 160VC is going to be up your street, or Fuji Pro 160C. I've not shot enough colour print to be able to make a recommendation though (I've only just started looking at C41, having shot exclusively E6 up 'til now.)

    Then the Fuji Reala or Superia are great print films.

    Welcome to Apug Patzer

    I think you should consider Fuji Reala if you’re after a sharp colour negative film. However, this advise is not based on personal experience but from conversations with other photographers.

    Re:Fuki Reala

    Hi,
    in my experience Reala tends to look flat. I'm sticking with Superia which is available in 135 & 120.

    Cheers

    Mick
