    Oh, and Ilford run their own process and print service (http://www.ilfordlab.com/)...

    What's it like?? I'm not a fan of flat blacks - pure whites and deep blacks with plenty of tonal range between - if you please!

    Has anyone used their service?

    Welcome.
    You must try Kodak Portra. It really is an amazing, current color print film especially in 120. Its old news to most of us but for someone returning to film after a long hiatus, never having seen it I think you will be pleased.

    Velvia 50 slide film is currently available and is well loved.

    I will let others share black and white favourites.

    Color slide: Velvia 50, Provia 100F.
    Color negative: Portra 400, Ektar 100, Kodak 400.
    B&W: HP5+, Rollei IR400s.

    Next year I plan to try some of the new Ferrania 100 E-6 film, once they've made a batch for sale. Welcome to the asylum known as film photography, and to APUG.

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    Hello, we ARE the droids you're looking for-welcome to APUGland! I'm a big fan of XP2 for b+w....lovely tones and C41 so you can get it done by any decent lab. HP5 + is a close second for me [I'm still mourning Verichrome Pan and all 3 Agfapans].
