So it's been a while since I've bought 35mm colour film, and in the intervening time period B&H has finally run out of its stock of Pro 160S. Many of my favourite photos are on 160S, I'm not quite sure what it is but I think it has to do with how colourful images look while not being over-saturated or over-contrasty. I also *think* it's got something to do with the Fuji rendition of blues and greens compared to my memories of Kodak Portra 160VC, which I used a couple of rolls of but never particularly liked.
I need a replacement film. And there isn't that much to choose from now.
Should I try some new Kodak Portra 160 and/or 400? Ektar? Stick to Superia? Order 100 rolls of 160S from eBay?
The key thing I'm looking for is which film has the closest colour rendition to 160S.
Currently, I do scan in my film and do slight adjustments digitally, but the less I have to do the better. (Of course, if I no real choice, I'll pick any film, scan and post-process to get the colours I want, but that's only if there's no other practical way.)
For reference, this sort of colour is what I like about 160S.
