Hi Derek,

What film to use? As someone else said it depends on what you are shooting. I also depends on the "look" you wish to achieve. There is a lot of discussion about different types of film in the film forum. A lot of us like Fuji Velvia for shooting landscapes because it produces super saturated colors. You defintely do not want to shoot people with that film unless you wish to give them a very unnatural, glowy kind of skin tone. The websites for the film manufacturers are also useful for descriptions of the recommended uses of the various films. Once you have selected a few films to try, also Goggle for reviews and post in the Film Forum for the opinion of others who have used the film.

As for processing/printing film, it depends on what is available in your area. I am located in the Oklahoma City area. Here there are a couple of places that I use to process film. I do my own printing. However, there are a lot of places that still print film. As with other printing, the limitation of most businesses that do printing is that they are going to use their standard one size fits all adjustments, which often produce less than optimal results. So a starting point is to find out if there is a custom printing business in your area and see if it can do a good job of printing for you.

Good luck and enjoy your new F4.
