    Thanks all, I'll definitely have to give Portra 400 a try, maybe later if I get the chance I'll try Reala too.
    thegman, when you say if you overexpose it, do you mean actually shoot the film like its an ISO 100 film, and then develop it as such, or just overexpose the film and then develop it as a ISO 400 film? Sorry, still a student and learning my way around film.
    I shoot both film and digital equipment.

    Just overexpose and develop as ISO 400. So basically, all your photos will be 2 stops over exposed, which on most C41 films is fine, you get more shadow detail and colours tend to fade just a bit.

    Thanks, I'll try that.

    Also I'll give Reala a try as well when I get the chance. I just picked up a roll or two of Portra 400. I'm curious to see how the color film develops. Only have ever shot and developed with black and white films.

    Portra 160 (now). Portra 160 NC previously.

    But the suggestion of Portra 400 is a good one.

    You may gain a better appreciation of the role that the film plays if you try some Ektar 100 as well.

    I'll have to take a chance with ektar at some point, for now, when I get the time I'd like to just try dabbling with development of the color film I'll be shooting. From what I've heard from friends it's a bit more of a challenge simply because you need to keep everything more to temperature vs. developing B/W films.
