    Portraits On Kodak Vericolor & PMC Films

    Does anyone here think that there is or will ever be an equal to the Kodak Vericolor and PMC films for portraiture ? I have yet to find anything as nice.

    A candid on Kodak Vericolor (VPS) 160:

    I used to use tons of Vericolour both S and L and PMC when it was made, but since these films are no longer manufactured I think it is no great loss because the current Kodak Portra 160 and 400 are even better.

    Oh ? I've tried Portra, with very pleasing results (see photo below) - but it seemed like maybe the grain structure isn't quite like the older MC films or something (perhaps it's a finer T-grain ?). I dunno - maybe it's just a figment of my imagination. But if Kodak replaced the VPS and PMC with it, they must have seen some improvement.

    I'm just thankful that they are still manufacturing these two great portrait films,quit while you're ahead.
