Need film info
I am a new member here. I am getting back into large format after an absence of 4-5 years. (I was getting fat carrying around a digital SLR . I have a couple of questions.. mostly about current films.
I have a Cambo 4x5 w/ 2 lenses... Caltar II-E 210mm, Caltar II-N 90mm. I have a Pentax spot meter that someone had modified by "Zone VI Studios". I did mostly landscapes, generally with color positive film. After commercial processing I scanned into photoshop for dust spotting and color corrections with a Canon D123OU 1200dpi scanner.
A lot of the work I was doing was just before sunrise or just after sunset. I am very particular about color reproduction... I never liked the color response of my digital Canon EOS 10D in low light.. maybe that is just me.
Five years ago I used
Astia 100 Daylight
Are these films still available? What other films are out there? What would you all recommend for low light outdoor photography?
I am now a long drive from my film supplier and lab in Portland, Oregon.. I have seen film on Calumet's web site. I am concerned about maintaining temperature while shipping.. I also will need a lab.
Also I am thinking about doing some B&W.. Again what films are out there? What would be considered a minimum filter set for outdoor work,,,
