    Two years ago it was all Tri-X for B&W and all Fuji for color. The Portras have brought me back to Kodak for C41, still using Fuji for transparency when I want positives.

    Fuji for colour transparencies, Kodak for colour prints, though if Kodachrome processing was available in the UK/Europe, I'd still be using it.

    I find that Fuji films tend to unnaturally overemphasize pastel colors in comparison to primary colors (unlike Kodak films). But I think that for those people who prefer Fuji over Kodak, this is probably the whole point in doing so.

    I don't shoot any Kodak films now, I found getting Tmax was becoming very difficult outside the U, living abroad & travelling so switched to Ilford films which are far easier to find.

    For Colour I switched to Fuji more than 30 years ago because I prefer their films, even in the days of E4 their colour rendition was better suited to what I required, with E6 & C41 their films have been outstanding.

    Last color I shot was 4x5 Agfa RSX 100 and 35mm Superia 400. That would make me a Fuji color guy. But all I have in the fridge is Kodak E200 in 120 rolls, a few just in case the autumn colors are insanely inspiring.
    And Kodak for b&w (switching from Tri-X to TMY-2).

    Nothing but Fuji for colour neg - Reala and Pro400H when I can afford them, and I make do with Superia 400 for the other 90 percent of the time.
    Fuji seems to be so much easier to get, and I'm very happy with it anyway. I can't remember the last time I shot Kodak - maybe 10+ years ago?

    As a rule I like Kodak films, but Provia 100F is one of my favorite E-6 emulsions.

    Like many people it seems I mostly shoot Kodak for B&W and Fuji for color. However I shoot some Fuji B&W and some Kodak color, especially with Ektar and the Portras (when I can afford them). I have recently been using NPH instead of Portra because it is cheaper, and I quite like it.

    Come to think of it I haven't shot a Kodak film for about twenty years, Iv'e only shot Fuji, so I'm going to try some Portra, and Ektachrome the next time I buy film so I can compare them with the Fuji Pro 160S and Provia I usually shoot, It should be interesting .
