    You are right about sexy grain, so then shoot 35mm. But let me tell ya, once you've been on the other side, you will never go back.

    I have never shot Fuji 160C, but I shoot a lot of 160S. It's probably my favorite color film.

    I bought 3 rolls of Ektar 100 a while back. I've only shot one roll of it so far. Can't decide if I like it yet... It is not a good film for portraits (if you want accurate colors anyway). It does seem pretty sharp though.

    Fuji 160S however, is awesome for portraits, and is also nice and sharp.

    Fuji 160S:

    (EDIT - The wall on his left side (camera right) is a pinkish color ... that's what the color cast on the side of his face is from.)

    (I'm not necessarily saying that these are 'awesome' portraits, lol - but the colors & grain are great. ...Ignore the dust spots.)

    Generally speaking, I love anything Fuji. Fuji blows Kodak away, IMO.

    And Fuji is pretty much the only one left making slide film...

    I *think* with the Fuji 160 films, 'C' is for contrast, and 'S' is for saturation... I could be totally wrong though...
