    120 Color film for street photography?

    If you wanted to shoot street photography in an dense urban area with color print film (in 120 format), what film would you choose?

    Probably Kodak Portra 400 - giving you oodles of exposure tolerance, and colour that's not 'funny'...

    Portra 400 at box speed.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Portra 400 or bust. You can shoot it from ISO 400-50 with relative impunity and pushes up to 1600 remarkably.

    With film back cameras, I like Fuji Reala in one for consistently bright scenes and Portra 400 in another for almost everything else.

    Thank you! I thought Porta would be the winner in this but at the same time, I thought Kodak Gold or Fuji's non professional film might eek out a victory.

    You kind of specified 120 film, which kind of doesn't have consumer color film available for it anymore.

    I found Ektar 100 in my Rollei 3.5 Automat worked well on a bright sunny day. Street shooting outside San Diego Comic Con:
