I've temporarily inherited a good 6x6 system that
I'm going to take on vacation with me. I'll be shooting Fuji Astia in my
old 35mm Nikon for the slide show, and at first assumed I'd use the same film
in the 6x6 camera. I'm just going to get the good 6x6 images
scanned at a local custom shop using the Kodak system that produces 2000
ppi scans for $12 each.
It occurred to me that since I can't project
these 6x6 images anyway, I might as well use color negative film. I've
run some tests w/scanned 35mm negatives compared to scanned transparency film,
and the difference in highlight and shadow detail (even on an inkjet print
from a scanned negative) is amazing.
So here's the question: If I'm going to use 6x6
negative film, scan it with a Kodak pro scan, and print it on my epson inkjet,
what's a good film to use? Most shots will be outdoors. I
know nothing about 6x6 color negative film. Any suggestions
appreciated. You can respond to following email address if you
