As long as the holder fits on the scanner glass, it ought to be okay.

I think you are misunderstanding what focal length means. Specifically, focal length has no inherent associated angle of view. There is a relationship between focal length, angle of view, and projected image size.

For 6x6, 80mm is a normal lens, i.e. equivalent to about 45-50mm on FF DSLRs. 150mm is a short tele, something like 85-90mm on FF DSLRs. On 4x5" film, a 150mm would be about a normal lens, and on MFT, 150mm is a 300mm equivalent (on FF DSLRs) lens, for the angle of view.

A 50/80/150 kit on 6x6 would be about the same as a 30/50/90 set on a FF DSLR, i.e. almost the classical 28/50/90 kit.

so many film choices, so little time,oh, and money! However, would someone kindly direct me to what would be considered the "best" low grain color film, in case I haven't purchased any yet! I also have some name brand b&W coming, but what is available, if say i want to shoot bw with higher artistic like grain, or could i just up the iso in camera, despite the film having an ISO of say 800? thanks for the aid to such a mixed up new film user!!

Hello, and thank you! Are all films capable of being scanned at home, with an epson V500 btw? Say for instance this brand, and type?

150mm is the classic portrait lens on 6x6, whereas 80mm is the normal lens. I am a bit surprised that you got those two, but not a wide. Maybe he was a studio user?

All films are capable of being scanned at home, including the XP-2 you mentioned.

If you like traditional b/w grain, I'd start with Tri-X, which is an ISO400 film. You can't change the ISO with a film camera the way you do with a DSLR. You can however shoot the camera as if you had used a higher ISO, and then adjust the developing time- this is called push developing, and is only really an option if you're developing yourself.

If what you want from your color film is low grain, I'd look at something like Ektar, but I'd actually suggest starting with an ISO 400 film that is more forgiving. I'd try both Portra and Fuji 400H and see what you like.

Yes, I think so, that was my impression as well, since they seem to have the same focal lengths that seem geared toward portraiture! the seller had mentioned that it is a professional for studio use camera! i just hope it wasn't to used!!?

Time for a new lab - I have never had anybody tell me they wouldn't push/pull my film for me...

Ah yes, of course you're right: I've been using Walmart so long to develop film for me that I forgot there are normal full-service labs. Still I'd argue that if you're going to push/pull b/w film, you're better off having control over the process.

I think 220 film is gone by now, possibly apart from expired stuff for experimentation.
