Hello Derek,

First and foremost congrats on your F4 and decision to delve into film. You will enjoy the journey. I read through the other posts and you've already received some excellent advice so I wont repeat. I will add though, look into Kodak's new Portra. It's an exceptional film in both 160 and 400. C41 (color negative) processing is typically much less expensive than E6 (slides), I find the 160 performs especially well if you shoot it at 125. It likes a lot of light. Portra (not the NC or VC flavors but the new formula) was specially formulated with scanning in mind as opposed to the darkroom. I shoot 400 as a general purpose film regularly and have been very pleased with it. It also accepts flash well. Have fun, John Crane.

Kind regards,
JBCrane, Shooter in Colorado.
