Re: filmscanners: Color Negative Film Poll
I've been using Supra 400 pretty regularly for ~ a year.
I think it scans (a bit) better than Royal Gold 400 but
the differences are not dramatically obvious to me.
Then I made the mistake of trying Provia100F. I get
such better results that I now use it (pushed 1 stop)
as my standard film. Compared to the negative films
I've tried (RG100, RG400, Supra100, & Supra400) it
is grain less. I also find that with slide film I have
fewer struggles getting color balance that pleases me .
I'm not fond of giving up the exposure latitude one gets
with negatives but willingly sacrifice that for Provia's great
quality. I almost like it as much as I did Kodachrome 25 though nothing can
beat the color rendition of that.
So my advice would be get Provia push it one stop and bracket
