    in the short answer business print film is negative film... slide film is positive film like a movie film would be. Read up on their characteristics since there is no shot answer to that.

    "Regular" 35mm film is negative film. "Slide" film is positive film. It is actually the colors as you see them. It's called slide film because rather than being cut into strips and used for prints, it is cut into individual frames and mounted and used as... you guessed it -- slides. Negative film is used to make prints. You can use slide film to make prints, but its a very different process.
