    Do try out any new film types before setting out on your road trip so you know how they perform and that you like their look.

    Sadly, I don't really have time I'm doing schoolwork as much as my brain will allow and simply don't have time to go shooting...I'll take along the 5 rolls of Superia I got today and hope I can pick up some Ektar along the way

    That's OK. You will get great results from well-handled consumer films.

    I think I definitely like Ekta for some things, but I personally would not use it for a general-purpose film unless it was the only choice I had. Let me put it this way: It is not a film I would have in my fridge as a go-to emulsion. I would go to the store and buy only as much as I needed when I wanted to use it for something specific. It is very "stylized," as one way of putting it.

    Here's my experience.

    I shoot superia 200 all the time. never had a bad experience. always pleased with the result. Tried pro160c. Couldn't honestly tell the difference between that and superia. Tried a roll of ektar recently, which was interesting. Some shots had really *good* colour, to the extent I understand why it is a great film ,but others were *bad* - magenta cast, which I understand is underexposure. bear in mind I was using OM2 on auto, and I think its fair to say if you use Ektar, shoot it at 80 or even 64, or set the exposure compensation up a bit. Superia sure takes some beating as a general purpose forgiving film. check out the colour shots in my gallery.

    Thanks so much! For my trip I'll be packing a handful of rolls of Superia and if I find some Ektar along the way I'll give it a shot, if not, then it sounds like I'll still be more than happy
