    Shot Portra 400 at 200 by mistake! Help!

    Hi Guys,

    I made the mistake of shooting 2 rolls of portra 400 at 200 ISO

    Do I need to so anything to the dev time?

    I will be self developing. Let me know. I hope I can save the shots as they looked good at the time!

    Cheers

    Paul

    Run it normal. 200 is where I normally shot it.

    As cjbecker says. Color neg will stand quite a lot of overexposure, it's underexposure that degrades the colors and grain.
    I have a Minox point-and-shoot which uses averaging metering with no simple way of over-riding, and I always set the camera at 200 ASA for 400ASA film.

    +1. I shoot almost all my color neg at 1/2 to 1 full stop under box speed and develop normally.

    What the others have stated - Kodak Portra 400 has an extremely wide latitude particularly on the overexposure side. Below are the results of the testing I did and scanned without pre or post anything. Plenty of room for post work.

    Do not worry about it. Two stops is within the dynamic range of C-41 film. If it had been slide film, then you would have had to deal with it during development.
    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.
