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
Kodak 160NC
E100SW Ektachrome

Fujifilm 160NPS
Astia 100 Daylight
Provia 100F

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,,,
