    i assume you mean if it's exposed properly

    just like with a digital camera, the results are only as good as the initial exposure

    Actually, color neg film has much greater dynamic range than digital. While you can do some tricks with combining multiple exposures (HDR), you can only do it with limited photos (fairly static images). Digital is more like slide film in DR.

    This is why I prefer the NC over the VC. It's easy to add back in some saturation/contrast, but its hard to recover the little extra dynamic range that the NC has.

    I'm becoming a big fan of Portra films too. I haven't decided whether I prefer the NC or VC versions of 160 and 400 yet.
