    I'm going to be shooting many local soccer games and practices and am contemplating what film to order. Conditions and time of day will obviously vary, as well as conditions this time of year, (overcast to very sunny) so I'm choosing print film and a wide variety of speeds.
    Right now I'm thinking the following distribution of speeds:
    6x 200
    2x 800
    2x 400
    3x 100

    Can anyone with experience reccomend the most realistic distribution?

    I would:

    6X 400
    4X 100
    2X 800 ( and that would be questionable, unless nighttime )

    I know, I would not waste time with the 200.

    Ditto, with 200 film the extra grain isn't worth 1 measly stop. Use 400 or 100.

    I've heard good things about Fuji 800 -- you can push it up to 1600 and the grain isn't too bad. Haven't tried it myself, though.
