I've been using 100 speed films during the entire last winter, I've noticed it always hasn't been fast enough due to lack of daylight during winter in Finland. Now I'm wondering what fast films have fine grain and colours good for airliners.net.
PS: Dont forget you can always push film from lets say ISO 100 to ISO 200 or 400. I know Chris Sheldon has said he has pushed Sensia 100 to ISO400 and had acceptable results. Provia 100F is supposed to be quite good for the job also.

I like Kodak Elitechrome 200. I have been using it for a couple of years now when I need the additional film speed and I think it is quite good. It has much finer grain than the terrible Kodak Kodachrome 200.

I use Sensia 100, and if i want 400 I use Provia 400. Of what ive heard, Fuji films are the best when it comes to color and sharpness. I only use slide films for spotting. And I got my Photosmart S20 filmscanner two weeks ago, slides works best in this scanner (negative lacks in color).
So i will go on using Fuji, no need to try any other brand as long as Fuji works this well

Provia 400 is the only slide film over ISO 100 I've found that's any good. Normally I prefer negative film for higher ISOs - Superia 200, 400 are fairly good, but I don't think there's much between these and the Kodak equivalents.

Best ISO 400 printfilm by far is Fuji NPH 400. Grain is comparable to Kodak Gold 100 (that's no typo...).
Provia 400 would be the best slidefilm. For 200, ISO 100 slidefilm pushed 1 stop is preferable according to most to ISO 200 slidefilm. That would make it Provia 100 at 200.
Overall, Fuji has better grain and more natural colours than does Kodak (won't even mention Agfa), Kodak has warmer colours (with Fuji you might want a warming filter (81A or B) under cloudy conditions if you think the results are too cold).
