    Wow, really nice! Although it has an impression that it is not shot with film but with digital. But grain levels are really good!
    I really like the cinematic look of portra 800.

    Right now it seems that I have some issues with portra delivery. Local shops are not able to get it in my given time limit(week and half) plus stores are empty.
    I have to look what fuji has to offer since fuji presence is much stronger here. I have heard that NPH 400 is quite good. Are there any other viable options beside Superia 1600?

    Fuji Pro 800Z is a great film for this type of work, especially if you want to reduce the exaggerated effects of mixed lighting.

    I have shot 800z at 1600 and dev'ed for 3200 and it looks good, at least in 645 format.

    The slide film provia 400x also works well to those kinds of speeds.

    Ultimately, though, one wants to use a combination of fast lenses, modertately fast film, and clever attention to the direction of ambient light... i.e. know which shots not to take and how to gently coax your subject into the right spot. You don't want to try to do it all with only one of these factors. It takes all of them to get good available light results.

    To get as much help as possible you need to tell us where you are. U.K.? U.S? Europe? www.fujilab.co.uk is selling Fuji pro 400 (35mm) at £1.73 per 36 exposures. It will deliver to non U.K. destinations. The film is outdated but has an expiry date of October 09 so is as good as new.

    No it certainly does not. Its look is more far from digital than with many other films.

    I'm impressed with the colour balance of these shots in artificial light, was the lighting fluorescent or tungsten ?

    I reccomend Portra 800 for color or T-Max 3200 for black and white which can be push processed to 25000 :o
