Ages ago I bought quite a bit of expired film from MrCad which comprised of mainly Kodak Portra VC in 160 and 400 in both 35mm and 120 format.
I have used the 400 speed quite a bit and had great results so I decided to give the 160 a go in my Yashicamat 124g as it was a particularly sunny day a few weeks back.
I metered with the Yashicamat as I forgot my light meter and I rated the film at 100.
The film was developed and scanned by Filmdev.
The images were lovely and warm with good contrast … very similar to my previous blog post when I tried the new kodak Gold 200 but a bit sharper and almost no grain to speak of.
I have another 14 rolls of this so I am really happy that even though expired it works great.
Well here is the whole roll … comments most welcome

One thought on “Expired Kodak Portra 160 VC .. the whole roll …”
I still have two or three rolls of that, about fifteen years old and refrigerated all that time, the rolls I have shot have performed similar to these. Definitely worth shooting!
