    Neither. NPL aka 160L is the tungsten balanced, japan only[1], 120 and sheet film format only 160 speed negative film designed for long / longish exposures. It came out at the same time as 160S & 160C so its a fairly new film. http://www.silverprint.co.uk/PDF/NPL160.pdf

    [1] well, it is easily available elsewhere too, but the fuji usa / uk / etc sites don't officialy list it.

    Thanks, I wasn't aware that Fuji made a tungsten based color negative film.

    Actually, NPL has been out for years and has recently been discontinuted. AFAIK, there is no new replacement. It's a nice film. Too bad if it's gone.

    I'm afraid we don't use much color negative film in the landscape business.

    I thought that had already done that? I did read in this months Profesional Photographer that both Fuji and Kodak have new emultions coming.

    I think Fuji has now upgraded all their transparency films. I haven't heard of any new Fuji films, except for a motion picture film. If you have information, could you post it?

    If anyone outside Japan is interested in trying some of the Japan-only films, such as the new Fujifilm tungsten reversal, Fujifilm Fortia SP (an ultra-high saturation color reversal film), or the Konica-Minolta chromes or black and whites, I'd be interested in trading for some of the European B&W films that are so exensive over here. Let me know if you are. Thanks! Matt

    Just realized that, for searching purposes, I should have posted my T64 report:
