I have some questions about 4x5 color transparency films. I haven't really used any color trans film since the demise of Kodachrome 64 120, and since that obviously is not coming back...
<li>What currently available film(s) is closest to Kodachrome in color balance? I tend to like warmer films. Roughly the same contrast as PKR is preferred, too.
<li>Does color balance matter given Photoshop manipulations? That is, canít you make any film look like any other film in Photoshop as far as color balance goes, anyway?
<li>Are all transparency films equally scanable (assuming a drum scan)? If not, what are the variables, or what films scan best?
<li>What EI do you use for suggested films?
Iíve already done some experiments with color negative films (160NC, NPS, 400NC), but they donít seem to completely satisfy, though I do like them when I want lower contrast.
Many thanks for any info.
