Color or Black and White
In the scenario that you are developing at home and scanning the film- what is the point of black and white film? Is there any reason to not shoot everything with, say, Ektar 100 and convert to black and white if desired. Similar to shooting in raw.
Developing c41 is easier, faster, and you get all that extra information. D76 does have a longer shelf life, but thatís a minor benefit.
Ektar 120 is cheaper than trix 120 as well. (B and h right now)
Why not always shoot color?
