A good photograher does not need to be a pro. A pro is just someone that earnes a living out of it. But a good photographer relies on what he knows and learned about a film. If he gets a complete different film. he
will experience trouble....

Actually profilms are only consistent within the batch. You will find different colorcasts from batch to batch (transparancy films). Pro's will shoot a testroll to determine wether to use a filter to compensate. My favorite color film in 35mm is Kodak Elitechrome 100 Extra color which I find more consistent and neutral than the Pro Ektachrome 100 VS. In color negs you are left in the hands of the lap and their mercy. They can screw up anything pro- or consumergrade. I guess that the latitude will cover up the differences between the two types.
