hi,

I am leaving in october to Guadelupe to shoot white sharks. using a nikon F100
camera.
after 12.00 ours there is sometimes a low light situation so I think I will have to shoot et least ASA 200 or even ASA 400 slidefilm. normaly I use the Kodak 100 elitechrome extracolour EBX slides with wich I am very happy. Which slidefilm would you suggest fuji provia 200/400, fuji sensia 200/400 or Kodak elitechrome 200/400 and for what reason.

I have used Sensia as well as Provia at 400 speed and not impressed with the Sensia whatsover, pretty much non usable for prints and sales due to a high grain. Provia the much better of the two.

Sorry i have no experience with the Kodak

I used to use EBX a lot. But didn't like the Kodak films above 100.

A lot of wildlife photographers used to favour shooting Fuji films pushed a stop. Sensia 100, pushed to 200, was always a popular choice.

Provia 100F is a good all around choice. It pushes well.

I like the blues from Velvia 100F better, but you better make sure to bracket your exposures.
