    There should be at least two things to think about here!

    1. R&D is ongoing at EK and the new film mentioned in the OP is evidence of that.
    2. Analog was better than digital and due to this small improvement, shows that it can be made even better!

    Maybe I should add that this does save on costs in inventory, packaging and etc, as said earlier, and this will serve to extend the lifetime of analog in the face of decreasing sales.

    So, rejoice! Go shoot some film.

    Agreed. Here's another: Go print some C-prints!

    Oh yeah. Um.

    Can anyone point me to a lab that regularly prints analog color/RA-4 here in the US? I seem to recall there was someone. My pro lab rarely does it and I'd love to find someone to send special work to. Maybe I need to start a new thread....

    Blue Moon Camera. I think they are an APUG advertiser.

    Tim, The Small Darkroom in NYC does my c-printing (optical).

    There are a number of other labs here that do them.

    There probably is an advantage as well inherent in replacing both the 400 films and the 160 films with films that use the same technology updates. If the lines differed too much, there would be less benefit from the economies of scale (such as they remain).

    Which may either bode well for enhancement of the Portra 800, or bode ill for its continuation.

    Praus (Rochester) and Color Services (Needham, MA) come to mind as offering traditional color printing. I haven't used them, but I know they're out there.

    More on the new Portra 160, this time something concrete:

    Hard to believe so many here can't grasp that this is a new and truly improved film available in<<GASP>> 5 formats.
