Thanks for all your responses to this guys.

Since I'm not sure of the lighting conditions I'll be working with I'm going 
to take a few rolls each of Ekter 100 and Portra, 160 & 400. I should be 
able to get something out of that lot!

One factor I forgot to ask about - do you have an impression that any of 
these films has a particularly broad exposure latitude?

Thanks again,
