Recently, I wrote a guest post for 35MMC, which was also picked up by DPREVIEW

I highlight why I think that most film stock comparisons online are kind of sort of bogus considering a hybrid analog-digital workflow.

My thesis is that if you digitize your negatives, you shoot general purpose film and not specialty film (e.g. Ektar, tinted film, etc), and you shoot it as the manufacturer intended (e.g. without pushing or pulling) the film stock you use isn’t as important as you may think. My suggestion is that you can simply pick your film stock based on speed, latitude and grain. All the rest isn’t all that important in the long run.

Please check out the guest post on 35mmc If you shoot film I can almost guarantee that this one will be interesting.
