    Pretty much the Kodak Portra UC repackaged... they replaced the 160 with 100 and kept the 400. I like the film a lot. Has almost a 70's fashion look to it.

    I tried it and I thought the skin tones were too red from this film for my taste

    Glen - how would you compare it to PortraNC? I've not played with PortraVC.

    Portra NC is my favorite color print film for great skin tones, I've tried VC and Ultra, but I like NC the best. The thing with print film is there is the color judgment of the printer to factor into the end results.

    Well according to kodak the new ultra is supposed to scan very well (the negative that is)

    I don't judge a film based on a print. I think all 3 portras (well ultra is no longer portra) have excellent skin tones. I'm a fuji guy on everything else though.
