    4x5 Fuji 160C

    I recently moved up to 4x5 and want to shoot Fuji 160C. I've found it listed at freestyle in Quickloads, but I'd prefer loose sheets. Does anyone know of an online distributor that has this film in sheets?

    megaperls webshop...

    B&H has S at substantially lower cost, but not C or NC. Sure you can't get by with S?

    Looks like I will consider Quickloads, then. I haven't tested 160S, but assumed it was softer and more suitable for portraiture rather than landscape photography; landscape is what I primarily shoot. For some reason I thought I had seen loose sheets advertised somewhere online.

    I use 160S for landscape. Just rate it at 125 or so and you're good to go.

    I do the same as Keith for outdoors. Pro 160S at EI 125. You get a bit of extra latitude over the C. The C has slightly more vibrant colors, but the S looks very natural, with great differentiation of subtle color variations, and I like the extra latitude for landscapes. In really flat light or low contrast, or if I wanted to punch up the colors, I might go for the C. But 160S isn't a compromise on color for me. I tried both and then ordered a large batch of the S.

    It's a little bit along the lines of S = Eliot Porter and C = Pete Turner, but more subtle a difference than that suggests.

    I routinely use Fuji 160 S for landscape photography. I shoot it as 4x5 quick loads and I also use it as 120 rollfilm in my Mamiya 7II. I also carry 160 C as a just-in-case backup, but find that I don't use it.

    I have been using 160c medium format

    This is the new formulation and I really like it.
