Don't switch but augment! One thing that shooting film with an older SLR will do for you is teach you to slow down and wait for the shot. Take that to shooting digital and you'll get a whole lot more good looking pics.

Indeed. I like very saturated bright colors and a warmer look in general, Ektar delivers that.

Yes they were since I was shooting a very shallow DOF. Up around f6 and a bit more distance and it wouldn't be a problem taking pics of say a dancer. I just got back a roll of Portra 160. All I can say is holy shit this stuff is great! Deep colors, excellent skin tones, great contrast and sharp as a razor. This time around I stuck with f stops from 2.8 to 5. I haven't looked at the low res scans yet. If they aren't clean and crisp then I'll have the negatives scanned as high res tiffs and convert them to loss less jpegs before I post them up.
