ART Film crew.. recommend me some rolls for my trip to Europe.

dmora

I was gonna take some Kodak 3200, Fuji 1600, and some trix 400 i think. Id like to take some Velvia but fffuuuu color. Makes me sad i cant process it at home. Oh and RIP Kodachrome. :wtc:
During my trip to Istanbul i took two film bodies one with day film and one for night worked out very well. :bowdown:


But then again, carrying aroudn 3 cameras will be a PITA.

No color? You probably have it covered then. The trix is nice for architecture; brings out texture well.

Velvia sucks anyway. But that's because i like to shoot human subjects.

Oh and be careful with those high speed films going through airport security, but you probably know this.

I took Ken Rockwells suggestion and got a roll of velvia 50 for landscapes :o

Also went hunting around and I've bought:
Fuji Provia 400
Kodak 3200 B+W
Ilford Delta 3200 B+W
Fuji Superia 1600 colour (not sure how good this is... mixed reviews)

I'm taking dSLR anyway, but might as well have some fun with different rolls of film

Gonna reserve the 3200 B&W for darkass restaurants etc

I'm definitely taking a couple rolls and my film cam on my next vacation. Going to leave the DSLR at home and take the S90 as my digital backup. Sounds like fun.

DaRk bars and pubs, 400 won't cut it.

And 3200 won't cut it in daylight. 400 pushed to EI800 is going to be the most versatile option. You can underexpose it 2 stops and still be in good shape, whereas with 3200 you'll be nuking highlights all over the place.

I kick myself every time I load a roll of ISO 100 or 50 film in one of my cameras. Takes me MONTHS to use up a single roll. :hs:
Yup. I've got some iso100 in right now and in a week I've taken 6 photos. It's useless indoors and since this is England its cloudy and overcast all the time it's useless here too!!
