I use both in my Canon EOS300.
Photography’s been a fairly long-standing, but ‘on and off’ hobby of mine for years, and I tend to match the film type to the purpose I’m taking the photos for.
For everyday use, like ‘before and after’ shots of the garden, etc, I’ll use prints, but when I’m wanting to take a photograph which (I hope) will be good enough for framing on the wall, I’ll use slides and then take prints from that later.
It usually end up that I’ll take slide film on holiday, when I’m taking each shot a bit more seriously: “I may never get the chance to see this again for a while.”
The point made above about color balance also is important when you’re using filters. Slide processing won’t alter the color balance from what you saw through the lens; you retain more control over the eventual outcome than you would with prints.
One downside to slides is that they’re less forgiving of exposure control, so bracketing shots can become necessary - that gets expensive.
I’d probably use slides even more if I’d stumped up the cash for a scanner with the ‘transparency’ option - something I now regret, to be honest.
