    Fuji 400H is a remarkable portrait film that has a fourth layer that makes it give truer colours in mixed lighting conditions, handles contrast very well,and has a pleasant colour pallet, try a roll I think you'll like it.

    I've found that that Portra corrects pretty easily (at least in a scanning workflow) for tungsten lighting. Fluorescents can be a bit hard on it, depending on the quality of the fluorescents. It sounds as if Fuji handles that a bit better.

    I'm so analogue I don't have a scanner,or photo-shop although I might get one to put my work on APUG, I get my pictures processed at a local pro lab and all I can say is Iv'e had some surprisingly good results much better than I expected in mixed light, and I'm going to try Fuji Pro 800Z next that also has the fourth layer.

    400H and 800Z are my main color films these days.

    400H:

    M7 / 28/2.0 ASPH

    800Z:

    M5 / 50/2.0

    (lab scans)

    However, my experiences with expired 800NPZ--actually refridgerated--was not nearly so good. Much more visible grain, seeming loss of speed (underexposed when shot at 800).
    Was that a purple coat? and purple boxes?

    or is that some kind of Infra Red filtration?

    That's amazing quality for such a fast film I'm impressed, unfortunately in the UK Fuji are going to stop importing 800Z because they say they don't sell enough to justify it. I don't often need such fast film, but I'm going to buy 10 rolls to freeze. I don't know what the situation is in the U.S with 800Z.

    I'm using 800Z a lot and it's tragic it's not going to be imported anymore, although there does seem to be a lot of it about. Superia 800 will be my replacement, I actually think it shows slightly less grain than 800Z, colours are punchier, but, of course, it can exaggerate ruddy skin.

    Yes, all the colors are normal...slight cast due to being shot under a bridge. The picture I posted was of the expired room-temp 800Z that I thought held up well, not the expired refrigerated 800NPZ that didn't.

    They are still importing 400 H, you could push it one stop
