David,

if you are not used to slides, I would recommend using CN-Film.
However, if you do not print color yourself and plan to use an "ordinary lab", you might be better off with slides, because they actually state what the picture should look like. Use half-stop bracketing until you have got used to the exposure of slides.

Today, slides are printed digitally almost everywhere. In conventional analog printing processes, CN Film always yields better colors, regardless of the look of the slides on the light table.

I wish you a pleasant journey and morning light ‘till 5 p.m.
