Hey Gooshin, love the fireworks shot. For some reason, those shots appeal to me a lot. Good captures all of 'em.

I agree. For landscapes and portraits/people Reala is excellent with very tight grain and great colors.

Often I use negatives (Reala) instead of slides for landscapes if I know I'm going to have more than 4 stops of contrast, usually sunrise/sunset photos in the mountains.

I find I either need ISO100 or ISO400 but rarely anything in between. So for 400 speed, I use Superia 400. I find there is hardly any difference in grain or colors between Superia 200 vs 400.

When my freezer full of Reala is used up I'll try the Kodak Ektar 100.

Recently I discovered the Shoppers Drug Mart "Easypix" brand ISO400 film. I've bought a whole bunch on sale for $3.99 per 3 pack. Even though it is really cheap it is surprisingly good, reminding me of Konica Centuria (sp?).
Alright... I got some Superia 400 from the local drugstore. Gonna run one roll through my "new" spotmatic to see if the light seals are any good (they look ok to me who knows basically nothing about such things). Probably shoot the whole roll today .

I got lousy results with Fuji, Kodak and Agfa ISO 200 color negative films.
I always seemed to do much better with their 100 and 400 speed offerings.
