I decided to start shooting color again with my film cameras and started with my Pentax 67 and Kodak Portra 160. I used to shoot a lot of Kodak E100 slide film when I first started with photography. I used a Jobo processor to process my own E6 slide film and the occasional C41 negative film. But once I got fully involved in digital photography, I sold many of my film cameras and my Jobo processor. Wrong move. Now 20 years later I am shooting film again and decided to start shooting C41 color negative film.
The challenge is not taking pictures. The challenge in shooting color film is in development. Luckily a company named Cinestill has made this much easier and provided an affordable option for amateur film photographers like me.
So I shot a roll of Kodak Portra 160 color negative film through my Pentax 67. I ended up having the film developed at Bedford Cameras in OKC since my Cinestill heater arrived DOA. I scanned the negatives on my Epson V750 film scanner and was really happy with the results.
