    New 2008 400 speed Portras Revision 3, etc

    I haven't seen a post to this yet, so I'd thought I'd put one up. Apparently there is a revision 3 coming soon for Portra 400NC and VC. Even finer grain then the last revision.

    Also 800 MAX film is seeing a new revision similar to what was done on Gold 100 and 200. I suspect this was in the works from years ago and since film is still selling well, Kodak decided to impliment it. Ron might have more info on that. Nice to see film still going strong.

    Sheesh! I was just getting ready to continue to rave about the 2nd gen (3rd? I forget) improvement of Portra. the 400VC just completely eliminated UC400 from my usage, better grain in skintones (neutral too) while keeping lots of the UC vivid color 'POP'. I suppose the 3rd (err, 4th? Maybe I'm counting the pre-Portra Pro films) will be just as good and perhaps even better.

    It's easy, you just have to search a little:

    Using film since before it was hip.

    Has Kodak released a Tech Pub for these new films yet? I'd like to see what the PGI grain numbers are now.

    Ok. Usually this forum has posts from a month back showing, so that is where I checked. Anyway I continued my questions in the other post.

    But apparently the third upgrade of Portra 800 still says 800-2

    How old is the Portra range?

    It came out in around the late 90s if I remember right. Before that there was the Pro 100, 400, and 1000 series. And the old standby VPH.
