I took prints and right now I kind of wish I'd taken slides. Why?
Well, I'd really like to put on a presentation about my hike but it's
hard to show a large group prints. Getting slides made from prints is
roughly $1/slide so with a little effort I could have my slide show.
I'm just missing a few round tuits. :)

As far as Kodak vs. Fuji goes, conventional wisdom says it depends on
what colors you're expecting to see. Kodak is supposed to be better
for yellows and reds where Fuji is supposed to have better blues and
greens. I only remember this because that's what color their boxes
are. I haven't seen a pronounced difference but that's what I use as
my guide.
