Ektar 100 seems the most appealing so far, any lower ISO suggestions as well? I have my old favorites, but looking for something "new", relatively speaking.


I tend to favor Gold because it gives that classic film look -- if I want invisible grain and true-to-life colors, I'll shoot with my digital camera. Low-speed Ektar was great back in the 1990s when it was the best we could get, but I just shot some and found it a little unfulfilling... nice colors but it takes a drum scanner to really show off what it can do. I shot a roll not long ago and truth be told I found it a little unfulfilling.

BTW, most of my film shooting is B&W and I tend to stick to the traditional-grain films. Can't go wrong with Ilford FP4 or HP5.
