    I have decided again to use slides, but I do not know which film to pick. I have been thinking of

    1. KODAK PROFESSIONAL ELITE Chrome 100 Film or

    2. FUJICHROME Sensia 100.

    I am looking for natural colors, sharpness and small grains.

    Now I hope some of you are able to help me! :hail:

    I second the Kodak E100's, the E100G would have the most neutral color balance.

    I've had expected results for natural color balance with Fuji Sensia - RA135. It doesn't burn the reds like Kodak.

    Here are some links to some excellent and current information on slide films. As for myself, I am still somewhat of a diehard Kodachrome 64 user - for a number of factors, but one of them is the simple fact that the other slides films that I've tried over the years have faded, but my Kodachromes have not.

    That says something to me.

    Here are some links:

    http://www.imx.nl/photosite/technical/E100G/E100G.html

    Hope these links are more than useful.

    Best regards in your photographic endeavors.

    Thank You for your reply’s,



    I have ordered 5 pc. FUJICHROME Sensia 100, and if I find the quality convincing, I will stick to that.
