I would strongly suggest that you stick to one film and processor, and (at
this stage) transparency film would be best because it eliminates a whole
bunch of variables and gives you a fixed reference for the scanning stage.
It is also difficult to use well, so will give instant feedback about
exposure, colour temperature (=colour of the light) and other errors.
