    It's a subjective choice. Try different films and decide what you like. If one was better than the other, they would only make one.

    My personal favorite high speed color print films are Fuji NPH 400 and NHG 800. Both can be pushed a stop or two, and still retain pretty high quality. Be sure to check with your lab; many cannot push color film more than one stop.

    One person's trash is another person's treasure. Some cheap film is pretty good.

    Don't forget to consider the lab. Take any film to some labs and it'll look like crap. Take cheap film to a good lab, and it may look pretty good.

    I'm a Fuji fan - but Fuji Agfa and Kodak are your top three.
