I am doing a project photographing the interior of a Cabin. I want to use Quartz Halogen lamps. What Transparency film would you use? I am most used to transparency film, and wish to use it for this project. I will be using both 4x5 and 35MM.

As far as I know, there are only 2 Tungsten films left, Kodak Ektachrome 64T (EPY) and Fujichrome 64T.

Though a bit grainy for 35mm, EPY is orders of magnitude better than Fuji's latest ISO 64 tungsten-balanced offering in other respects. No contest for 4x5. One can even get EPY in 13x18cm.

I wouldn't shoot current Fujichrome 64T no matter how much you paid me. In fact, the degraded, sickly yellow results compared with Fuji's previous version are what drove me to digital for illustrating my wife's magazine articles.
