I am in the process of acquiring a film body. I'll be sticking with some flavor of EOS so I can use my lenses. I am currently considering an Elan 7NE and an EOS-3. Both can do ETTL (7NE does II, also), so I can use my existing EX flash gear.

Two issues are concerning me. The 7NE only goes to 1/4000, the EOS-3 does 1/8000. That (1/4000) will be a problem with my fast primes. I know, I use a 6D. At ISO 100, I have to stop down to f/2.8 on nice sunny days. To compound the issue ISO 100 film is EXPENSIVE. I can get 4 rolls of 400 or 800 for the price of 1 roll of 100. I have seen some ISO 200 film for sale.

At 1/4000, with ISO 200 film, I'll be at f/4, or so. I'd like access to f/2. Do I spring for the more expensive EOS-3 and 100-speed film, or buy some ND filters? I already have a set (2, 3, 4-stop) of 67mm NDs. I could use those on the 58mm & 67mm lenses. A set (or 1 3-stop ND) of 77mm NDs would cover my 72mm & 77mm lenses.

Thoughts? Ideas? Different approaches?

Tom,
The one stop of difference is not that big a deal. I regularly use a Elan 7N and a 1V and rarely go to 1/8000. What 100 speed films are you looking to use? BW/color? T-max 100/400 & Portra 160/400 are the roughly the same price through B&H.
If you like B&W, try the Rollei RPX 25. It is expensive but is a beautiful, nearly grainless film. It is also great for reversal through DR5.

KOOL! I wonder if that will include all formats, aka 35mm, 120, and large?


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

The press release I saw said 35mm 36 exp only.

It is good news, for sure, but a lot of my Ektachromes from the 60's and 70's are faded and discolored. I wonder if it was the lab as I used all different labs back then. All my Kodachromes going back to the early 1950's (my baby pictures my dad took) look like they were taken yesterday.

That's another good point: will the local labs be able to process it?

I send my stuff to The Darkroom except for the occasional BW roll at home (I haven't shot much film in the last year). I am sure the big labs will be able to process it. We will see.

Years ago on a film specific forum, the longevity of film came into question. It would seem that it will usually last a long time. Old rolls were found in attics, and had been there a good many years turned out just fine after being developed. Makes ya wonder, doesn't it?
