    My hybrid process is to run it through Fuji C41 soup and feed it to my Nikon 8000 / Vuescan. Results as linked above - looks plenty saturated punchy to me but that could well be due to the postprocessing.

    Ektar on the other hand, I can't (yet) get good skin tones from it; it's not as bad as RVP50 but still pretty bad. Had no trouble with either of the new Portras or 160S - they all look quite accurate. I've seen people get OK skin tones from it, so I'm not sure what gives yet.

    With respect to The Great Fuji Renaming, I suspect you have it backwards. NPS became 160S (which is definitely its current name), NPC became 160C, NPH became 400H, NPZ became 800Z, etc. B&H shows 160C as discontinued in 120; maybe you can get it elsewhere or in 135, I don't know.

    Pro 160S, Pro 160C and Pro 800Z are already discontinued.
    In C41 professional emulsions is left: Pro 160NS, Pro 400H and the Reala 100 in 120 roll film.

    I like the skin tones I get with Ektar souped in JOBO Press Kit C-41 @39C, printed on Fuji CA II or Kodak Endura or Supra III in Kodak Ektacolor RA RT chemicals (room temp tray processed).

    In C41 the new Kodak Portra 160 does fairly good in long exposures. 2 minute shot from a 14-bit drumscanner:




    100% unsharpened crop (this you can sharpen up in PP):


    Wrote some thoughts about it here.

    Fuji NPL if you can find it. I have a frozen supply if you are interested.
