    I know Portra 800 was given an update sometime in 2006 or 2007, but the edge code didn't seem to change to 800-3 like I expected it to. I just got a roll of 35mm 800 back from the lab (purchased sometime in the last year). It has an edge code of 800-3 now. The 120 roll I bought a couple months ago did NOT have 800-3, but still 800-2.

    Anyone know what's up with that? Was the 800-2 stuff old stock still?
