Hi, Dr. A.
It has been a long time since I shot colour neg, but then it came in third behind B/W and slide film, on which most of my colour pics were taken on Kodachrome 25, 64, or Ektachrome if I needed extra speed. So I am not up to speed, as it were, with current negative emulsions and am not going to be of much assistance.
My favourite neg film of the period was Fuji Reala, superb skin tones, but less dramatic colours in landscape, one could argue not overblown as many other films were, and possibly more representative of the actual scene. Unfortunately, I understand this film has been discontinued. I used to use Kodak film until my first stab at a Fuji, and from thereon it was Fuji all the way. What prompted the change was I shot a cassette of Kodacolor followed by my first Fuji 100 (not Reala) on the same overcast day. Comparing the results, the Kodak looked a little dirty compared to the Fuji, which held the colours better and with slightly more contrast. Surprisingly, when I shot both on a sunny day, the colours of the Fuji seemed less overblown than the Kodak.
