Hi Patrick,

I use Kodak Gold 100ASA and am pleased with the results.  (I used a
filter LBD-2, to correct for the tungsten bulb on our Olympus BH-2.) 
The trick, however, is getting the processing lab to print it correctly.
I usually work with a lab near work and have always gotten the right tint,
but once when I was in a hurry-I took the film to another commercial lab
which made the pictures have a dark yellow hue- I took the negatives in to
the other lab and they managed to print them with the proper hue.

There may be better films, but I haven't had any better luck with any of
the others that I have tried. I get the best results with slide film- but
I don't like the conversion of a slide image to print.
