    I'd like to try the Portra 160 film, and although my Canon AE-1P does not cater for ISO 160, I assume choosing 100 or 200 will be okay. But I'm still a little unsure of the effect one way or another might cause.

    Is it a case of, the higher the ISO the more grain?

    What effect will ISO 100 have on it?

    I suppose going to a lower ISO number will run the risk of overexposing?

    I agree with Brian, Rob. Have a look at Hamish's blog / website as he has a great article on Portra and its extraordinary lattitude.

    Overexpose it a bit (125). I burn my Portra 400 at 320 and get beautiful results.
