    In the last decade or so I've only used two films in 5x4. TMY-2, and Portra 160.

    I don't have a fave yet. I haven't tried 'em all.

    For color negative, I really like Portra 400--the colors are predicable and it's not too difficult to color-correct. Been shooting a lot of Foma 400 in 8x10 because it's cheap (arista edu).
