Thanks for the tip re. Fuji Reala, I'm always willing to experiment, and I'll give it a try. It's not that I'm unhappy with the quality of transparency, more a case of the growing expense of buying it and getting it processed. The improvement in quality of recently lauched colour neg. films, makes using it for stock shooting more of a realistic prospect, as well as being cheaper to buy and process (particularly if you process your own). At a time of diminishing financial returns from stock photography, every saving in costs becomes an important consideration.
