1. Slow daylight color print film.

2. Fast daylight color print film.
    Fuji Press 800

3. Color print film for a combination of daylight as
well as indoor artificial light.
    Fuji Press 800

3. Slow color slide.
                Fuji Provia 100 or for some subjects Kodak E-100SW

4. Fast color slide.
    Fuji Provia 400F
5. Slow black and white.
