I've been using the Portra 400UC and VC films for the past 6 months and
find them just right for my shooting.

I don't want to start a film flame war, and I don't shoot weddings...
but I tried out a roll of the Portra NC and I thought it was the worst
color film I have ever put through my camera. The colors were muted and
hardly realistic. Certainly it could have been processing but I have
stuck with the cheap consumer grade Fuji and Agfa films and am very
happy with them.
