    Definitely the "New" portra - 160NC-2 on the negs - and the new Kodak logo and marketing blurb on the packet saying revised and better scanning, or something.

    OK, the stuff they're selling online seems to be the old version.
    I've not souped a roll yet, so I can't relay the edge markings, but I can't see any hype on the box about scanability etc.

    Meh - It's good film that should have set me back about £20 a pack, and I got it for a quarter of that. I'm happy

    Still a great deal for the old type.

    I see you are in Nottingham - pop down to your local Calumet:

    I would, but for two things;
    a) I ordered 5 boxes of the stuff
    b) My credit card wouldn't stand the temptation of other stuff there. (I personally can stand any amount of temptation, but my credit card is NOT to be trusted around photographic gear )

    I souped the stuff last night, and it is the old version (marked ##KODAK 160NC##)
    I like the results from it though. I've put an image shot on it up in the gallery.

    For those in America, I just bought a Pro 5-Pack of the new 160NC in 120 size, from Adorama, for about $20. The packages all say "NEW" on them but no box - does anyone shoot 120 and can verify the marking for the new emulsion? I hate this practice of Adorama of breaking open these boxes. Supposed to be sold intact, in a box, not as 5 randomly-put together rolls which might not even be the same vintage.

    Hello Matt

    Thanks for posting I got some packs of 160NC just the job for the fringe festival, and I also got 300ft of Delta 100 for £16 a roll. I hear the delta is long dated to.
