I know, from past experience, that Kodak Portra 160 is an excellent film., 3 May 2013
Kodak Portra 160 is probably the best colour print film available.
The colours and colour balance are excellent; with no particular bias, or emphasis, to any colour. All colours are rendered lifelike and natural, and definition is also, excellent. Skin tones are particularly good and natural.
This is not the case with certain other films, that I have tried. Fuji film tends to emphasize the yellows and greens in the picture, and lesser Kodak film emphasizes the reds and browns, in the picture. The ASA 160 speed rating is a little slow, but gives a grain-free picture.
One limitation of this film is that it has a shorter shelf life than amateur film. I would recommend it be kept in the fridge until needed.
I would recommend this film to every professional, and keen amateur photographer.
