    I was looking on EBay recently and noticed several offers for Kodak Ektacolor Pro 160 film. The film has current expiration dates. The Kodak website has nothing about it. Does anyone know anything?

    Could it be a familiar product, but marked for sale in overseas markets? I know Kodak at one time had emulsions that were different for sales in India.

    Likely Portra 160 NC rebranded for the Asian market. Edge codes would tell the tale but doubt it's another emulsion. Online chatter going back to 2002 suggests this is the case.

    I've used a lot of this in 120 (fresh).

    The edge markings simply say "KODAK PRO 160".
