Portra 160 vs Fuji 400h

Rolleiflex 6x6, f/4

on the left we have Fuji 400h rated at 100, and on the right is Portra 160 rated at 100.

i've been a big fan of Fuji 400h for awhile. i tried to jump on the new Portra 400 bandwagon, but i kept going back to Fuji. recently i tried Kodak Portra 160 for the first time, however, and i really liked the results. so i decided to do a side by side comparison, shooting a roll of each in the same lighting conditions. i have to say that Jayme Sayes at the FIND lab did a pretty amazing job matching them, but i think i might be finally be converted to Portra. i think i'll do a side by side test of Fuji 400h with Portra 400 next...


  1. These are almost indistinguishable! How do you rate the 160?

    1. I rate both at 100 and do the bulb in 45 degree thing
