What color films are left? new

I'm unexpectedly going back into film AP and I'm wondering if any good color films are available now? Is anyone doing film AP?

Fuji film is readily available with speeds of ISO 200, 400 and 800. Most drug store chains and Wal-Mart sell it.

Negative or positive? Format?

Kodak Gold works good if you can find it. But Fujicolor 200 has slightly better color and blues.

Nightfly has made a lot of film tests. Read this and then try to google more examples. There are a few more images that are not shown in the link.

My holder is 35 mm format. Do they still make slide film? E200 is gone isn't it? I will use either including black and white.

E200 still appears on Ebay. Fuji Acros 100 is the most used film for B&W astrophoto now. It's not much red sensitive, but has fine grain and almost no reciprocity failure.
