    Porta 160

    I may be placing an order to get Portra 160 but I found that my local lab is doing E-6.

    Will this film go well with E-6?

    Portra is normally developed in C-41, not E-6.

    I'd be a bit surprised if they did strictly E-6, ask them if they do C-41 too.

    I know that shop and I'm pretty sure they do C41 as well. Maybe they do not do it themselves but ship it to a bigger lab...
    Why don't you just ask them? I always found them nice to deal with.

    Kodak Portra is a colour negative film not an E6 colour slide film, and requires processing in C 41 chemistry.

    Never shot anything with color film and we are just curious to see how our new born will look with prints/scan form color negs in 120.

    It'l look great as all Portra films are quality stuff.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Best to use ambient/natural light (shouldnt be a problem at this time of the year, avoid fluorescent light!), and as you live in Germany, send the stuff off to FARBGLANZ, their scans are really good and
    will give you the beautiful skin tones that Portra stands for. Prices are reasonable. While resolution is limited to about 1600px on the long side, for bigger prints you can always have single frames re-scanned by a professional lab later with the Farbglanz scans as "color reference".
