    That's very impressive in a mixture of incandescent and fluorescent lighting without filtration, is it the fourth emulation layer that is preventing the colour caste ?

    it's a good film

    Expensive, but with most any other C41 films, I get yellowish and greenish casts, so in this particular mix of lighting, the Portra 800 excels.
