    I've not pushed the new or old versions of 400, but in terms of underexposure latitude, (which I would think is related to pushability), in my experience, the new Portra 400 isn't *that* different than the old 400NC/400NC.

    I didn't catch that. That's odd. I wonder if there is something to it, or just us reading into a mistake by the web guy...

    I think it is just because the tech sheet covered 5 films, four of which were already discontinued. A separate tech sheet for Portra 800 has never been available, so to prevent confusion as to which sheet to look at for the slower speeds, it was moved to the discontinued section of the site. I don't think there is any more to read into than that at this point.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    I am happy, because I could never really choose between the VC and NC and found myself thinking about film choice too much. I prefer thinking about the pictures...

    I look forward to trying the new Portra films.

    Peter from Kodak just replied to my email about Portra 800.

    I see that the technical datasheet E-4040 for the Kodak Professional Portra
    Films, (160NC/160VC/400NC/400VC/800) is now listed under the discontinued
    publications list, but the Kodak Professional Portra 800 Film continues to be
    available in 120 and 135.
    Just to squash any rumors before they start
