    How much difference is there in the end result of slide vs. print film give todays available films?
    Assuming the negatives are to be scanned and printed digitally opposed to needing slides for a presentation.

    Slide film has narrower exposure latitude and underexposed slides tend to be very thin and difficult to scan in my opinion. One of my old Canon FD body's ight meter is out by a half to a full stop depending on the ISO rating (under) and that is enough to make for darker slides if I forget to adjust for it. Should really have sent it out for a CLA already...

    If you over expose slide film and blow out your highlights, you can't recover them. If you over expose color neg film, you might be able to recover highlight info.

    I haven't processed E6 for about twenty years because for what it costs to have E6 processed in two hours at a local pro lab while I do my shopping it's not worth the hassle, and their machines do it better.

    I use the freestyle kit to process E-6 for Stereo slides and about the hardest part is warming up the chemicals. I have never done C-41 so I don't know what it looks like wet, but when you pull your E-6 out of the tank you have to believe that you didn't do anything wrong and just hang it up to dry and just believe it will not look like that when it dries. It is amazing but your film will look like the emulation was unaffected by processing and then slowly it will start to look like slide film with photos on it. Watching the drying process the first time is like watching magic.
