    I also like Superia (it's available even at Food Lion, occasionally) and when it comes right down to it, I will put any current brand of film and some off brands too, into my camera. I've always been pleasantly surprised, and when the pictures are crummy, I've decided that it was my fault, not the equipment or the film.

    With best regards.

    Superia is great. I use it in 120 rolls, excellent quality and the price is very low.
    where are you buying it? I used to buy Superia 100 in color but I haven't been able to find it in about a year.
    f/22 and be there.

    It's horses for courses of course, Superia in all it's guises is a great all purpose film, I do find the 100 a tad too contrasty though. My choice is usually the 200, which is fine at box speed.
    When I used to shoot weddings I used 160S with it's more muted palette and better skin tones, 400H is the same here. I later switched to Portra 160 and 400, I found these films a little better at skin tones.
    Lately I have tried using Ektar 100 for landscape etc, and am finding it to be really good, need to get the exposures right though. A good compromise between the extremes of contrast is, of course, Fuji Reala....still a really great film, but I don't know how it's priced across the ditch.

    If you can still reliably buy the stuff at any price you're in some regards ahead of us. Stateside, Reala supply is very shaky.

    And just for contrast, over here we have no problems getting it. 120 - £3.25, 135 - £3.15

    Yeah no worries. Pity I can't get Acros though, that's not brought in to the country at all
