Imagine that you are going to be sent to a secret photo mission and you have no idea at all about the conditions and subjects you will find.
You are allowed to choose ONLY one color negative film, ONE slide film and ONE B&W film to shoot with your film slr.

It would have to be a very versatile film.
What would it be?

Fuji Press 800, Kodak E100VS, Kodak T400CN. (Ok, I realise the last 2 are probably End Of Life, but I have not been shooting film for quite a while now.... ;p)

Tri-X, E200.
Since only 1 film each, no point choosing ISO 100 film.

Forget the film! How much are they paying me for the mission?

Press/Superia 800 for colour negs, matched with Delta 400 or 3200 for B&W. Sensia II 400 for colour slide - I have little experience with "pro" films e.g. provia, velvia.

PS: Film slr? Gimme rangefinder, if the mission is james bond type ;)

It's quite a ridiculous mission...but presuming those people don't care about the final quality....

Budget mix: Superia 800 - Sensia 400 - T400CN
Good mix: Press 800 - Provia 400F - Tmax 400 (not much experience)

The high ISO mix will help you cope with low light conditions if they occur.

If I was still shooting with my SLRs...Would do slides. That being:Velvia 50 & 100 if light sensitivity is not an issue.

If so secretive...quality and colour is not so important so long as it has the details so I would not mind any ISO 400 negative that is push processed
