    There's a lot of love out there for Portra 160nc but in the Southern California sun my Portra pictures always look washed out or pastel-y. (don't care for Fuji 160 S or C either)

    I think I'll try some Fuji Pro 400H.

    wblynch,

    make sure to use a UV filter here in So-cal, really helps! you can also use a skylight-1a filter which helps to warm things up a tad as well.

    cheers!

    Portra is really true to color. This works against you if you don't correct with filters for situations you describe. Once you correct the WB through filters, your pictures will look right.

    Portra is so true you need correction. No Thanks. I'd rather shoot Gold 100 or Ektar or Fujicolor.

    Actually I don't think Portra is true because it doesn't register the colors I saw at the scene. If I have to adjust white balance for every situation I might as well succumb to the digital monster.

    You can adjust color balance to overcome white balance problems in post processing stage by changing the filtration. This is how the digital monster works.

    Portra has incredible exposure latitude, which also means good chances to be able to correct for color casts, if you just give enough exposure to avoid placing blue curve on the toe. Well this is true to almost any color neg film. Take advice, but don't believe everything on the Internet to the letter... Everything's so relative, depending on one's needs and taste.

    Then we pick up a Hasselblad camera from the 1960s and make perfect pictures with it, and I doubt their modern lenses are noticeably better to the naked eye.
    Very true statement.

    Hi Thomas,
    They've known how to make good cameras and lenses for a long time, but the manufacturers are under great pressure to re-invent the wheel on a regular basis to keep the wheels of industry turning and ensure their continued existence. the advent of digital imaging has been a godsend for them, and enabled them to sell millions of cameras to people who already have them.
