    I think Konota at PP should have them. You can also try CP or ruby. Havent checked it out for at least 5 months though Personally I prefer NPC which has much more saturated colours compared to NPS which is more neutral. Harder to find NPC the last time I tried to look for it though.

    Opps I just realised its called Pro 160C/S now. NPC/NPS was the old emulsion which do sent exist now...
