    If you could find some still fresh (because discontinued), and if you avoid Fuji labs (Kodak are OK), I would strongly suggest you to try the Konica VX-200 or the Konica Centuria 400 print films. For slides, the Velvia.

    Portra 160VC or NC are probably what I would use. Possibly Fuji Reala as well.

    For a transparency film, I'd likely use Astia, EPP, E100G, or given my particular refrigerator, I might use my stash of discontinued EPN or E100SW.

    Thanks everyone for your advice. Since there were several suggestions without on film a clear cut choice, I'm going to get a couple rolls of Velvia, Provia, Koadchrome, and Portra and see what I prefer. Thanks again....

    E100VS would be a good choice too.

    Exactly. It's about what you prefer!

    Velvia works, provia works, if you can find some E100VS it works. I find a warming polarizor is a must.

    erm no one recommends Fuji Reala...well I don't know about Autumn shots but the first time I tried it recently I got some great photos rich in colour.......but the problem these days (compared to the old chemical process) is knowing if the scanner is adding the colours.
