    Well seeing as the Nikon F6 film camera supports Nikon's newest iTTL flash system, there is really no difference between it and a newer type electronic capture cameras in discussions of macro flash technique.
    See http://www.vistek.ca/pdfs/nikonf6.pdf , the F6 supports X-sync to 1/8000 sec in Auto FP mode.

    I wonder if the F6 supports iTTL combined with off-the-film measurement. I expect not.

    If not, is the F6 still compatible with the older-style film TTL which is really superior?

    The iTTL compatibility is nice because the F6 properly supports modern Nikon flash units, so you can at least use newer flashes in TTL mode, but from what I understand, you may get better results (and certainly never worse) with the older through-the-lens and off-the-film TTL.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    i-TTL is not off the film even with the F6. But I think F6 can use other TTL mode.

    Some reports say it supports i-TTL OTF flash, and it does support the previous version of TTL flash as well.
