What's your guys' favorite film stock?
I'm kind of out of the loop nowadays (I've stopped doing photography until a point when I can potentially build my own darkroom and make some prints), but looking at my photography stuff I have a box of Ektar 100 sitting out that's just about empty. I've tried several other types of film but I don't remember whether or not I developed any real preference.
I don't shot nearly enough film to have a favorite stock. I used some HP5+ 400 and liked it, but I wouldn't call it my favorite because I have nothing to compare it to.

>>290 Same here. Just got into film and photography in general so I don't really have a preference. Just got some ektar for the first time so I'm hoping its good. Or at least better than the colorplus I was using.

For me right now, just whatever is cheap and available. I stocked up on a few boxes of Superia 400 (all that the local pharmacy had) for much cheaper than I could find it from photo retailers or scalpers. And I've gotten good images in the past from it, so it's good enough for me.
>>358 Nice pic, there's some funky reel square stuff on top right? I don't know much about film so i don't know if that's supposed to be there.

>>359 I think it's either a very minor sort of light leak, or, more likely, surge marks around the sprocket holes from the lab. This was on 35mm film. I don't think it's a light leak because the area is darker there which would indicate less light. But I'm also not entirely sure how this would happen at the lab. It might have something to do with my scanner. Still pretty happy with how it turned out.
