I'm inexperienced with analogue photography. Currently I'm shooting with the "new" Zenit-E and the "older" Pentacon Six and I'm trying to find out some differences between the various films. With colour films my favourite so far is Fujifilm Velvia 50/100 (slide). I tried Fujifilm Sensia (slide) and Kodak Portra (negative) but I didn't like them a lot and none had richer colours and finer grain than Velvia. I've got a roll of Fujifilm Superia Reala that is currently being processed at the lab.

When it comes to black & white I'm still undecided and I can't tell the difference from FP4+ to Delta 100 or HP5+ to Delta 400. It's said that Delta has less contrast but finer grain, but I don't really know. Also I'm not developing for myself, so maybe it doesn't matter anyway. I also tried a roll of Ilford PanF+, but as I'm having next to no experience at all I can't tell if it's any good. I noticed that I could push the pictures quite a bit though, but okay ISO 50 film is expected to have fine grain.

I'm looking forward to devloping film for myself some day, but for now I'm just taking pictures, scan them and upload the better ones here.

Somehow they're all just B&W to me.. but considering colours, from what I've shot I dislike most of the photos but those shot with Velvia, which seems to be amazing in almost every case. And they also come out of the scanner almost exactly like they should. I had to tweak around Kodak Portra 160 VC last time to make it look any good.
