        Used the Portra 160 color film in a Mamiya 6x7 medium format camera. Film color was bright with natural hues. Grain was excellent. Multi pack with cheaper pricing. Had to hunt a little to find a shop to develop the larger format.

                      A great new color neg from Kodak! This new Portra 160 has a great exposure latitude and scans very well. Over expose the stuff and film scans still show great highlight detail (I typically expose the film at ISO 50). Would love to see a wet print from these negs, but that just isn't in my work flow. While some might not like the merging of the NC and VC Portra lines, I find the new film to have a very beautiful color palette (but more similar to the old NC film than the VC film). Kodak could have easily just discontinued one of the lines, but by formulating a new emulsion, it shows Kodak's commitment to their film customers.

                      Love that fact that you can buy this film in 220 as well. Also don't forget that different lenses have different amounts of contrast. Scans from my H1 have much more contrast than scans from my Yashica 124G twin lens.
