    100 for me. Partly due to using the metered prism, which, like me, doesn't believe in 'half measures'. 160 still seems a baffling film rating to me. Strange number.

    The film itself, 160. If you need to skew the reading due to an inaccurate meter or method of reading, that's a different story. But if you do
    need to fudge, a modestly reduced ASA is preferable to a higher one.

    It is 160, because it reflects the improvements that its predecessor, Vericolour, went through.

    Prior to those improvements Vericolour was ASA (not ISO) 125.

    160 Box speed
    The film has such a great latitude why screw with the speed at 125?

    I agree Steve, Kodak have a pretty good idea of the speed of their films, I only up/down rate films if I have a good reason.
