Portra 160 is the finest grain of the three Portra’s, Its low iso makes it great for daylight shooting and it’s warmth makes it ideal for portraiture. This film has very good exposure latitude which means it does well with overexposure. It has medium contrast and low saturation making a great alternative to the more saturated Ektar 100.

Best trip film
What I really like about Portra 160, it has no evident tint (like vivid red tones or bright green-blue), the colours are so accurate. So that’s the reason why It’s outstanding for portraits. It also has impressive dynamic range and tiny grain. So, it’s also nice for nature and architecture. Having ISO 160, it can also be carefully used durring the ovecast and even evening / early morning time. But, I don’t take this film, when it’s snowing. The tints become too warm.
I prefer Portra 160 over Ektar 100.
I like shooting Portra 160 on bright sunny days because it have very low contrast, true to life color, and beautiful warm tones.
