The Fujifilm 160 NS is not available on 35mm making it a novelty film for medium format and larger formats. Lighter coloured subjects clearly demonstrate this film’s purplish characteristics, less so when shot under sunny conditions. Slower speeds allow larger apertures to be selected to demonstrate the beauty of bokeh on larger formats.
Like most film, the NS is not all that interesting when times are cloudy so be sure to overexpose. When the sun is out, the results are oh so satisfying. Skin tones are sharp and beautifully rendered giving the equivalent Portra an interesting alternative.
