Whilst the range of films available today is no where near as wide as it once was their quality has never been better and it's a great time to shoot film. Just ordered some 'Cinestill' as I love its movie film look.

I'm seeing some superb work produced from Porta and Cinestill, I must order some myself. And of course we have Ektachrome to look forward to but that of course needs to be exposed accurately with highlights protected, not unlike digital.
PS BEOON is now married to an El-Nikkor 50 f/2.8, should be great for copying monochrome when I have a moment or two, soon hopefully.
