    Ektachrome

    Which film do you use more of? I am trying to gather which films we may end up having the longest.

    The last option (equal amounts) is rather ambiguous.
    I "shoot a pretty equal amount of all the Ektachrome films", the amount being none at all.

    Your assuming that popularity is the only factor, there are actually many factors involved in how long a product lives, for example:

    Difficulty and cost to manufacture and the similarity to other products in the lineup, are also factors. As for me, I don't recall ever shooting Ektachrome, all my slides were shot over a 2 year period, and I think on Fujichrome film, it was all nearly 30 years ago.

    Another thing that will make it difficult, impossible even, to determine which film is most popular is that you do not know how much "more" is. You are counting people who prefer something or another, not how much of their preferred film they use.
    What if, say, the people shooting more of the least popular film in this poll use twice as much of that film than all other films together?
    Most buyers does not equal most sold.

    Still, a fun poll!

    Something like number of rolls per month or per year.

    [By the way, how many rolls of discontinued film do you shoot a year?]
