I used to shoot only colour and only transparencies, but since reverting to 
and trying most films including several C41s I wouldn't shoot anything else 
except in Digital because my Digilux1 doesn't offer the option.

C41 has the advantage that you can get it processed anywhere; neg quality is 
nearly always good so the variable quality of the prints that they throw in 
doesn't matter AND you often get a good quality scan to CD for the price.

At the end of the day it is simply personal preference and need.
