    Kodak or Fuji

    Hi- I know I have come out with lots of polls, but I am just a curious person. Do you shoot more Kodak or Fuji Film? I am looking more on the color film end. I can't edit the poll, but where I have I shoot both, I ment to put and equal amount of Kodak and Fuji. I shoot all Kodak except for instant film, for that I use Fuji. I find all of the Kodak films to offer more natural and real colors. Thanks

    Most Fuji for color and most Kodak for B&W.

    I shoot it by which film I like. Right now I hate the look of digital so I like most films.

    As I'm trying to use Kodachrome whenever the slower speed is suitable for the subject, definitely more Kodak than Fuji for color slides at the moment. If/when K64 finishes, I'll probably go with Astia.
    No strong preferences for color neg, whatever's in the fridge for the speed I need.
    And Ilford for B&W.

    Almost exclusively Kodak for both black & white and color. On rare occasion Fuji, if I get a sample or the price is really wonderful.

    Fuji films for color transparencies. I'm thinking of trying some Kodak Ektar 100 in 120 though, looks enticing. Then in black and white, almost all Fuji Neopan 400 and some Ilford FP4.

    I shoot both Fuji and Kodak, I guess it's about 50/50. For 35mm Kodak wins the equation with Kodachrome. For MF, Fuji Velvia, Provia and Fortia SP are the most used. When I shoot colour, I usually opt for slides.

    Adding C-41 to the equation would tip the scales to "others" (Agfa Optima 100) for MF and Fuji (Superia Reala 100) for 35mm.

    I have shot far more Kodak than Fuji films. I simply like better the colors from Kodak negatives. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that most labs out there use Fuji processors, Fuji processes and Fuji papers that are not optimized for Kodak films. I process my own films using a Jobo processor, Kodak chemicals and I scan my own films. When it comes to printing I print myself too with a Canon Pro9000 inkjet printer. I am not saying Fuji films are not good. I just like the colors from Kodak Portra VC 160 or 400. Have tried NPH, NPS and some Konica before. They are OK. But still the colors from Portra VC always got the praise. In my opinion processing is far more critical for good films to really shine. I screwed up in my own processing too often that I have no doubt that I know how good the result will be when it's done right.
