    ....a good buddy just told me to do exactly the same.....shot it one stop overexposed to cram more detail into it so its exactly what you're saying too.....

My instructors believed it was better to have good density (not bulletproof) as to risk having negatives that were too thin. I suppose that may be nitpicky, but I think they were right. I love 160NC BTW. Great film!

    I rate it at 125 unless it is a sunny day and I am out of the shade, Then box speed. I like the little extra snap of a little over exposure.

    160NC is one of the most used films for your application. It is quite forgiving, gives gorgeous color, and scans extremely well.

    Someone mentioned how good the 400 speed Portras are; I'd have to agree completely. I have shot a lot of FC 160S; it seems like a nice intermediate choice between the best of the two 160 Portras. So even before FC 160S's demise, I was thinking of transitioning to 400-speed Portras for all my color work, with maybe the occasional roll of 160S.

    But now, it's more likely that I'll stick with the 400 Portras, and give up very little in doing so, with Ektar for low-speed applications.

    My logic was that anyone who is still "bothering" (:rolleyes to shoot film at this point is not going to give it up just because one company stops making it, when there is a comparable product made by another company.
