    I need some recommendations for films that will give me natural colors... I have shot with several different types of film and find that I like the lower contrast look of Superia 200 but the color is a bit too off for me... yellows for example.

    Any experiences with films like Fuji 160S [i have 160C in the fridge because my shop ran out of S...], Portra 160NC, Reala, etc, or any other films would be great! I would love to know about how each performs, like the exposure latitude and grain, and what it is best for.

    I usually shoot odd things, suburban still life shots... sometimes candid shots of people, etc..

    Thanks in advance.

    That was actually the film I had in mind before I read your post.

    I found it to be very natural looking. It's probably my favorite film...

    I haven't processed color yet, but wouldn't hand-processing solve your problem?
