Wow! These images are amazing! I have to be honest... it has me thinking of grabbing an ME Super now :P
Pick one up, they are only like $50.

These are shot at 250 with Portra 400.
Thanks for the inspiration! Great stuff. I am finally about to take my first whack at using my ME Super that has been waiting for me since I bought it for a few bucks some months ago... I will be shooting a couple rolls of portra 400 to start and (some Ektar 100) with hopes of getting some printables of the family for holiday gifts etc out of the mix. I don't expect results this good considering that I am a film newb and am at the mercy of the local lab. At least I have FA77 and FA31 to help me and I have a good local lab based on reviews. I will be attempting my own scans though from the negatives (just with a flatbed)...

Anyhow, seems like I should take your lead and shoot at 250 when in the shade... Any other tips?

edit: it seems like it's pretty hard to screw portra 400 up as far as under or over exposure. (particularly based on this article)

Thanks Les and Todd.
Todd: 250 when in the shade is about it, typically off the face.
