Behaves very much like the Portra 400...no surprise there. Glad to have a slower option :smile:

Yeah, definitely a great set!
I like them very much.
How did you scan them? How would you describe the grain compared to Ektar and Prtro 400?

Thanks, Martin. I scanned using an Epson V750 Pro.

The new 160 is not as fine grained as Ektar, but it's close enough, and it won't matter too much in prints anyway. Definitely a little less grain than it's 400 speed sister/brother.

Where do you find such places???????????????????????????????????????


They're all over the place here in Austin. A plethora of spots! You should make a visit to CenTex soon. We can grab some coffee/beer/tea and do a photo walk. :smile:

Hi Phillip: a couple of questions, please:

1. Are you using Epson's scanning software, Vuescan, or Silverfast?
2. Are you using ColorNeg? If so, what film profile are you using: I guess the new Portra Professional is not the same as either Portra NC or VC

I'm seriously thinking of switching from Ektar 100 to the new Portra, I have some in my B&H wish list :smile:

Great shots, keep 'em coming

Here are some from my first roll of Portra 160 (Nikon F80, Nikkor 35/2). I don't have a scanner, so I just do 3EUR/roll scans at my local lab.

I like that layout a lot Francis! Very cool - it compliments the scene.

I'm curious about your camera. What viewfinder do you use? I ask because you get great composition for your portrait formatted pictures - something very difficult with the wlf on a 645.

I am using the Epson included software. Simple to use and very effective!

Not sure what ColorNeg is, but I don't use it. Try some of the new 160, I think you'll like it.

I upgraded to the AF, remember? It's got a standard viewfinder :biggrin:

I tried many a time to do portrait orientation with the m645 and boy was that lousy and difficult. :tongue:

Oh yeah - the AF has a built in prism, ... right! I finally got a non-metered prism for mine. You are right - it takes the pain out of vertical shots. But I still wish there was an M645 lensed 6x6 camera.
