Hey All, I have been taking pictures of aircraft for about a year and just started uploading my photos about two months ago. I used 400 speed film (did not know any better) up to a month ago. I have tried Royal Gold 100 and I loved it and wanted to know if anybody has any experiance with Supra 100 and if, wich do you think is better or wich do you preffer and why? I thank you guys for the input.

Thanks. Ed

It is actually called "Kodak Professional" "Supra 100" (I'm holding a roll on my hand)

Thanks. Ed

I believe "Supra 100" is simply a re-packaged "PJ100".

Nikonman, were you thinking of Fuji's "Superia 100"?

Agree with you Gary.
I believe that Kodak Royal Gold 100 is the best choice for us until a better type released.
Fuji Reala 100 is also a very good negatives (ASA100), but Fuji film is not as sharp as Kodak.

949, yes, Superia, Supra same thing : )

Anyway, about the fuji-kodak film battle, Fuji IS sharper than kodak, at least with slides...not sure about prints...

About The Sharpness

Hi Nikonman and all readers,

I can buy many type of films here in Hong Kong.
I always take shots with "949".
We are interesting for any new product.
ABout prints, Kodak Royal Gold 100 should be the best in the world at the moment.
As for slides, I use mainly Fuji Provia 100F [RDPIII] (RDPII at before).
About Kodak Supra 100, I have not used it yet.
But I will try it out later. But if 949 said is correct.
I don't think Supra 100 is a bad film. before Kodak "PJ" series is a pretty good film.

Future Film?

Fri Jul 28, 2000 4:36 pm

Hi all

Does anyone know of any future proposed film?

I will be sticking with Royal Gold ASA100 for the time being. I was looking back on my old prints recently which were Kodak Gold ASA200 and the grain is really noticeable. Hence the reason that my first scans on this site are very grainy and I am so embarrased about them :-(

I wish Kodak will re-introduce a print film in ASA 25. I sorely miss the Royal Gold 25 and the Ektar 25.

Yes. ASA25 is a very good film. If they were still available, I would prefer Ektar 25 Professional.

Maybe you may try Konica Impressa 50 but it is not available in all countries.

About Konica Impress 50

Hi Kasing,

I have used it years ago.
I felt the colour is so a bit "yellow".
The resolution is not very well.
