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.

I haven't used Portra for a while but bought a batch just before the price rise. And now I'm remembering just why I've always loved it so much in the past. The colours are just FANTASTIC. And the latitude is great too.
It's sharp, detailed but still with a lovely natural look. If you scan it and want to push the saturation or knock it back a bit then that's fine too. It adapts well to all lighting conditions and captures exactly how you remember it.
It's not the cheapest. But it is definitely worth it!
There's really nothing bad to say about Portra400. Buy it, shoot it, fall in love forever!
It took me a while to get round to shooting some of this, and I was wondering a bit about whether it really could be as good as people seemed to think it was. But it genuinely is something pretty special. Provided you err on the side of giving it a bit too much light rather than a bit too little, you can abuse it really quite badly and still get stunning results. The colours saturation is neither too much nor too little which allows for a great deal of flexibility in post. In 120, it's hard to beat in my opinion.
Really like the results I've been getting from this and for a decent price. Gorgeous natural colours and great detail. The reported EI flexibility of this film is a real bonus and makes it the colour 120 of choice that'll take some beating.
What is there to say about everyone's favourite colour negative film? It's exposure latitude: it overexposes beautifully and it also underexposes surprisingly well; I've shot it at ~800 and had it developed as normal before now and it's dealt with it really well. This in particular makes it a very versatile film. Fine grain and superb sharpness in 120, rich Kodak colours as you'd expect from a film like this.
