    Colour or black and white, use a slow film. Buildings don't move, and you probably will be using a tripod. My vote is for Ektar 100 for colour and FP4+ or Pan F for black and white. The grain is so fine on Ektar 100 that I can't see it in my grain focuser. I have to focus on a line in the frame. Ektar is the smoothest negative film I have ever seen.

    Another possibility for transparencies if you REALLY want saturated colors is E100VS. Like Velvia, it is a high saturation film. But I feel like the colors are somewhat more natural than Velvia. E100VS is also warmer than Velvia, and REALLY makes the reds pop.

    I would use Ektar 100 for colour and T-Max 100 for B&W.

    P.S. If you are doing extensive movements or using an ultrawide, slide films can be a problem, due to falloff/Scheimpflug.

    P.P.S. I am glad to hear that someone is finding use for Ektar.

    My idea is to get the look of Stephen Shore. I know he shot 8x10....not sure of his film.

    Anyhow, will try all the suggested films, and see what I like.

    Why would you suggest B&W in a Color forum? Did you read this thread?

    Well....trying most of the suggestions above, it looks like for me at least, Ecktachrome E100G is my favorite. It has the look I was looking for. Ecktar was a close second. For B&W, I am still a fan of Tri-X.

    Thanks for all of the suggestions.
