    Looking for fastest c41 film still produced.

    The days of Fuji Press are long gone and I'm seeking a replacement. Right now the fastest I know of is Fuji Superia 800 or Fuji Supra "Xtra" 800 (both barely make it a stop). I'm definitely looking to push > 1600. If anyone has an experience (and examples) of fast color film > 2 stops please let me know.

    Thanks!

    I keep seeing Fuji Natura for sale.. I'm not sure whether it's still made or not.

    Portra in 400 and 800. There are examples of P400 at 1600 to 3200 that were posted here when the film was new - some say they are "great" but personally I think the shadow detail is all missing and you need to be scanning to get the most out of such extreme pushes.

    I think Natura 1600 is still made, twinlenslife.com has some great examples of Portra 400 at some remarkable speeds. Also, The Brothers Wright, who run twinlenslife.com, are starting to provide Kodak 500T with the remjet removed in 35mm, so you can process that plain old C41.

    The word is Portra 400 is very similar to 500T, but I'd say 500T seems to do better in lower light.

    Superia 1600, just got new stock in.

    Portra 400 is better than 500T.
    High speed examples are usually very crap because people use them in terrible lighting situations that have high contrast and well away from 5600K.

    I would consistently run ports 400 at speeds that were stupid. I would run it up to 3200 without pushing. Any thing above I would push + 1 stop for every stop above 3200. At 1600 it looks great.

    Yes, Fuji Superia/Natura ISO 1600.

    Then come the ISO 800 CN films by Agfa, Fuji, Kodak.

    That's it.

    Where can one buy Superia 1600? Is it still available in North America? I haven't seen it in years.
