Quick question about quality colour film.
1) Kodachrome - I read that this is a superb film for portraiture, weddings etc. I note though that is has to be sent to the US for development, and art of the purchase cost includes the cost of developing using the rather unique method. Is it worth using.
2) A fellow APUGer (RJ) has told me the following about quality film
a) Fuji 160NPC - a contrasty film with high saturation - similar to Velvia but better latitude saturation.
b) Fuji 160NPS - Soft film, really smooth skin tones (does that mean it gives that 'out-of-focus' look or does it just mean its a dreamy looking film.
c) Fuji Reala - midway between 160NPC and 160NPS
d) Fuji NPH400 - a fine grained fast (ISO400) film that is more neatural than Reala
So my question this - of the 4 above, which is best for general portraiture of family, babies etc and which is best for traditional weddings with white wedding dresses etc.
