i think we should put color slide comparisons on the main page of this thread, just a thought. pretty much just one-upping the descriptions, to actual pictures.

Print film is where the colour is backwards. It is called print film or negative film. Black and white is print film.

 

Slide film is a positive, looks like a tiny little picture that is correct(colour and stuff). It is called slide film or positive film.

I dont know if this has been mentioned but I always like to check different films on flickr.com, just search whatever film and sort it by tags and you can see tons of results

Provia is pretty good all round film but you have to be aware that it has a slight magenta cast to it. If shooting portraits on transparency I would probably go for Astia (for the warmer tones), or Kodak EPP (if you require precise colour rendition). Do not use saturated films as you will end up with reddish skin tones!

Handy Hint of the Day:

 

The kodak film you are all referring to is spelt P-O-R-T-R-A. It's a portrait specific film and there for is portra, not porta or potra.

 

Now that we have that outta the way, alot of you will be wondering what the NC and VC stand for after them

 

NC = Natural Colours.

VC= Vivid Colours.

 

so base your buying desicions on that.

 

Thanks,

Timmy.

This seems like a perfect statement for 'The Film Thread'.

 

 

"I Love film, Purely because with Digital, all the colour films we know, have all been made into one little slider bar called 'Saturation'. -Quote Tim Regard. (that's me peoples!)

"In digital, if you have any clue what you're doing, you almost never touch the saturation bar." -Quote Nick Morales

 

Levels + Curves > Contrast + Saturation

 

 

In conclusion, Timmy doesn't know what he's talking aboot when it comes to digital.

 

How can you know you're pro-life if you weren't even aborted?

Unless they charge 30 dollars for a roll of b&w, and 15 for a roll of e6 like mine.

That is when you buy an over priced roll of film front them, unwind it and put glue that only drys when in contact with air all over the film. Then roll it back up before it dries like you shot it and get them to develope it. I believe they use a very expensive machine for E-6 too. All resulting in their machines being glue to shit.
