    Most likely any 800 speed film made by Kodak, Fuju, Agfa or Konica.

    I would not use the Perutz.

    Hi Paul
     

    Actually, that's incorrect.

    For example, the film I noted at the top of this thread,
    Fujicolor NPZ-800, is a pro film.

    Here's a nice webpage, with links to the
    hompages of ALL the Fujifilm Professional
    color negative films:

    Here's a nice article on various films,
    including my current 800 choice Fuji NPZ-800,
    from this past January's Petersen's Photographic:

    I've always had good results with FujiPress 800

    According to the datasheets, Fuji Press/Superia 800 has slightly better
    high-contrast resolution than NPZ 800, 125 versus 115 lp/mm.

    Konica Centuria 800 is sharper according to the MTF curves, but has worse
    high-contrast resolution, 100 lp/mm. Agfa Vista 800 is even sharper, but
    has even less low-contrast resolution, 40 versus 50 lp/mm. Kodak Supra 800
    seems very sharp, perhaps more than any of the above.

    Subjectively, I find that NPZ rated at EI 640 is least grainy of all,
    and due to lower midtone contrast than Press/Superia 800, NPZ produces
    much nicer skin tones.
