On the whole I was pleased with the Portra: Detail, colour, contrast and sharpness were all very pleasing considering that it's print film. I didn't use it UW but here's a surface shot that shows its worth.

Very impressive saturation and sharpness (and of course photography!). A friend of mine was using it UW last week in the Red Sea - but I've not the results yet. Alex

Damn Bob, I'm not showing you any of my shots in Indonesia as they will obviously pale to your fine palette.

Once again an amazing shot!!(No cock Robin either)

Blue graduations are pretty good too, so the UW should be nice.

Todd, I'm getting too old and worn down, my eyes are failing and my teeth are falling out. It's all down hill for me!

BTW: You're nearly as old as my favourite camera!

As long as you leave me your camera gear when you pass on Yoda I will be happy to use the force.
