I recently shot a box of 400NC in 8x10 and I got the contacts back yesterday. I'm very impressed with this film, the colours are accurate and neutral, yet opunchy. Sounds like a contradiction doesn't it, but its the best way I can describe it. Normaly I've not a big fan of Kodak negative films in the past, but the new Portra has really impressed me. These contacts really jump off the page as sharp, smooth, impressive photos. They really make the subject matter look better than it did in person. In the past about the only Kodak film I used was Kodachrome, but now I think I'll be using more Portra.
