Kodak - properly known as Kodak Eastman - was founded in America in 1888 and dominated the "Western" world of photography for the next 100 years, constantly in fierce rivalry with the Japanese Fuji. Similarly to Fuji the advent of digital photography at the turn of the century caused significant financial problems. A late attempt to win in the compact market was hit by the rise of mobile photography and bankruptcy followed in 2012. Fortunately the photography business has survived under the Kodak Alaris name - based in Hertfordshire, England - and they have delighted the analogue industry by pledging continued support for film production and the promise of bringing back old favourite emulsions.

Like 400 version, but better!

This is a lower ISO version of famous 400ISO Portra! Same beautiful colours, exposure latitude, everything, just more resolution for extra charm!

Pinhole lushness

I've only shot in my Holga Pinhole. But the soft contrast complements the soft focus pinhole rendering well. The muted tones contribute nicely with the ghostly capture of the pine hole.

Looking forway to trying in portrait photography.

My go to colour film

There’s always some Portra 160 in my fridge, it’s a brilliant emulsion and renders colours beautifully. It’s also very versatile as I found out after shooting a whole roll at 400 ISO by accident. I had the film pushed by two stops in development. The results had their own unique look; stronger colours, with more contrast and grain. I’ve pushed a few rolls since to achieve a specific look ... this one was shot at 400ISO, with a soft Lee filter and pushed +2 in development, crop only in post, no other edits:

Dreamy palette

Gorgeous colour representation as ever with Kodak, I would use it more often if it were a smidge cheaper!
