Kodak Portra 400

Just like the Portra 160, this used to be available in NC and VC versions. Now it is simply sold as a single version as Portra 400. It is a really nice film, especially for medium format work where the grain is lost in the size of the negative. Colours are gorgeous and you can shoot it at the box rating of 400 without the need to over expose at all. I like the muted but still distinct colour representation of this film. I might just end up having this as my favourite colour negative stock. Still easy to find in Tokyo, but I understand prices are about to rise dramatically.
