Winner: Kodak Portra 800 CN

So the shots came out relatively well was about skeptical about getting some severe grain being such a high speed but i used a light meter app on my iphone to rescue the exposures and it worked! well the shots were a lot better than the fuji provia shots anyway :) this is one of my favourite films such a shame its so bloody expensive and hard to find

    Dude - as much as I love Kodak, I'm not sure it's fair to compare C41 vs E6 xpro...cross processing always blows out the saturation (I underexpose xpro by at least one stop). Is that just me being pedantic?

    ...oh & I think provia is the worst E6 emulsion that Fuji do for xpro...

    @captainbonobo i didn't go out with the intention of comparing the 2 films I just couldn't be bothered to upload 2 albums on here ha! And I was incredibly surprised any of these pictures overexposed run both films at f11 500" the lightmeter I used suggested an aperture of f15 for the Kodak as it was 800 ISO but my camera only goes to f11 ha, and I used the same settings for the fuji pro and it still consumed too much light. I agree with the emulsion I have loads of unusual results with fuji E6 films the film can turn it either purple green or orange depending on the temp of the developer and it also kills my chemicals ha
