I've found that Fuji Provia is the most accurate slide film. I'm trying some
Kodak Max for print film accuracy in blues. I hace a ArtixScan 4000dpi
slide/negative scanner which is excellent but probably a bit expensive for
hobby use. I can get full size A4 prints that look like photos cropped from
about haf the area of a slide
