I am looking for recommendations for a C41 film. I have been shooting Ektar 100 in 35mm and 120 and while it does a good job it seems a bit contrasty. I am mostly shooting moving trains in daylight with good glass.
I want a long tonal scale, so it maintains shadow detail as well as detail in the highlights. I want good color reproduction in daylight, few of these photos have skin tones. I want it to be easy to color balance. Of lesser concern is grain.
I don't want coarse grain; but the other considerations are more important. ISO 100 ish is preferred. Exposure latitude would be nice. My favorite E6 film for this kind of shooting has been Astia, some of the Ektachromes, etc.
I shoot 35mm and 120 and am open to ideas. What I do not want are blocked up highlights and inky black shadows. No C41 Velvia equivalents for me!
Your suggestions are most appreciated.
