Well, I was going to say no, but then you threw me with
the "of sorts" part. :>)
The film (I hate people that say, "fill-em") produces a wide
color gamut well outside of even the NTSC color triangle.
It does not conform to a specific triangle as such and even
varies its shape with exposure. I suppose we could say its part
of the many unique photochemical qualities of film that make it
so hard to replicate electronically.
