    I have not signed on for a long time so am not aware of any talk about the new, well almost new, Fujifilm Pro 160's. Fuji claims extremely fine grain and I concur. With my enlarger at maximum height the grain in some butterfly pictures is hard to see with a grain focus tool.
    I have not had time to find any Panatomic X negatives for comparison.

    Have others some experience?:wink:

    Yes, it's VERY good. We have switched in the mean time to all Fuji Pro series.

    An interesting article and some tests on this film:

    I'm using another roll or two today on a shoot. Have only used one roll of this film so far, but it was nice, smooth, evenly balanced and has very tight grain. Good stuff, as far as I'm concerned, a decent product to work with. tim

    I use a lot of Pro 160S, mostly in 120 and 4x5, and I look forward to comparing it to the new Portra 160NC. The links below will take you to galleries that include a number of my Pro 160S snaps.

    Best,
