I found that I started getting decent results with Fuji Reala and Kodak PMC...up to 8x10. Times have really changed. Portra 160 and Ektar 100 give me superb 8x10 prints...even 11x14. While contrasty, Ilford Pan F is gorgeous rated at 25 in Perceptal. I get great 16x20 prints from 35mm with it that while having apparent grain, are beautiful...and the clients have liked thrm.

I don't remember when those films came out.  I stopped doing "paid for" work in the late 70's.   I do know that the later films were much, much better.  From what I remember, some photographers were using 35mm film for weddings, but always with flash; such that slow film could be used. They also used monster Honeywell "potato masher" flashes with GN of 120 or some such thing.  Pastors were much more amenable to use of flash in those days because I suppose there was no other way to do it!
