Slide film is generally less grainy than print film in scanning sky. Have
you found any good print film for sky?

I'm fond of Supra 400 and use it a lot.
Recently I've also been shooting Provia 100F when
there is enough light. These films are apples
and oranges but Supra 400 is real 'chunky' compared to the
Provia. It is interesting to do a max zoom on a 4000 ppi file from
a 35 mm frame to see what the pixels look like up close.
Provia has much cleaner, uniform coloration among sets of
max zoomed pixels than the Supra 400 does.
This shows up in output in prints from the Provia being more
'sparkly' or 'luminous'.
It's kind of academic as I photograph dogs in available light so 100 speed
film is a significant hindrance in early and late light where I
find most of my interesting pictures.
Based on the results I'm getting with Provia I'll be using it more,
I'll just teach the dogs to be stationary.
