Another advantage of MP film is that you could make slides from your negs by shooting the negs macro. I've always wanted to do this, but the orange mask poses a PITA.

Side note... why does motion picture film use 250 and 500 speed designations? I'm curious why their conventions would be different than still film.
Interesting misconceptions here. Sorry.

The orange color is a mask is NOT a constant orange dye. It is a POSITIVE orange image superimposed over the NEGATIVE original negative color image, and which has the ability to perform contrast and color masking at the same time.
