I need to shoot some slides of album covers - our slide recorder died and I can't do it through the computer; I'm thinking of using some lights instead of flash so I can see immediately if I have glare problems. Any advice on which film to use (accurate color rendition, etc.)? They'll eventually be projected onto the planetarium dome, btw.

Thanks-

If you want accurate color rendition then stay away from velvia!!!
I'd say try some ektachrome (the non VC version) or Provia. both are nice.

Also be carefull with the lighting, be sure to use 5000k or be prepared for ugly color casts.
if you can spend some money, this looks nice:

polarize

A polarizing filter either as gel on the lights or as a filter in front of the lens may help here as well.

Good luck,
