For color film, I went with what was easily available at my local camera store. I picked up two rolls of Kodak Ektar 100, which worked perfectly for shooting in the afternoon.
Anyone needing full technical data on Kodak Ektar 100 in 35mm and 120 sizes can download on the Kodak Website or by googling Kodak Ektar 100. Some fascinating facts gleaned from this document: The acetate base for Ektar 100 in 120 is thinner than the 35mm stock—0.10mm as opposed 0.13mm—due in part to the paper backing.
Kodak Ektar 100 is one of my all-time favorite films. It’s a punchy daylight film that can be shot into the sun with grain smoother than your baby’s bottom. Color and detail rendered from in landscape photography is second to none.
Just a small historical point, Kodak Ektar was originally released in 1989 but was re-released in September 2008 under the name Kodak EKTAR 100. I used it all through the '90's and was certainly a great film.
