film in vietnam.
i will be going on a trip to vn mid-december for three weeks, travelling to saigon, nha trang, hoi an, ha long bay.
just want to know what are people's experience with film over there.
i currently have a 20pk of fuji reala 100 in 35mm and a farly large selection of 100/400 bw in 35mm and 120. planning to bring over a hasselblad 500cm w/50-80-150 and canon eos3 w/50/1.2 and possibly 17-40/4 or 16-35/2.8mk1
what have people's experience with the following:
- ascertaining film in saigon and hanoi - slide or neg? 120 and 35mm?
- processing film - slide/bw/neg?
- any places to recommend in central saigon or cholon? processing and camera stores.
if i was to bring over 20+20 (colour+bw) do you guys think that will be enough film for the trip? or should i stock up more on colour film? will iso100 be enough as a walk around iso or do i need faster?
also, any recommendations on gear? i have plan to use the eos3 as walk around with a wide zoom and the 50 at night. and the hasselblad to do portraits when i break-away from the group.
i am unsure on which zoom to get.
