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.

Portra 800 is a very versatile, forgiving, all-rounder film. It is a bit expensive, but the tones are lovely, it looks great in almost any weather or lighting conditions, basically you're bound to get some great shots from a roll of Portra 800 no matter what you're shooting
Kodak Portra 800 film is an excellent colour negative film. It has good colour rendering and excellent rendition of skin tones. It is one of my favourite colour negative films.
OK I don't normally leave reviews unless they are bad but Portra 800 although it is stupid expensive is without doubt my favourite film out there. It just has a certain feel to it and in some ways gives you some confidence knowing that you will get good results as far as exposure and quality, unfortunately it can't help you focus but maybe that could be something they can develop in the future (yes being sarcastic)
Great all round film and in 35mm and 120 is perfect so there you have it thank you and I just built a swing for my kids so guess what film I used to take pics of them? wrong it was ColorPlus you think I am going to waste money on decent film on them.
I like to shoot with natural light and it can be tricky to shoot on overcast days and avoid grain. Not a problem with Portra 800, which provides beautiful shots with natural looking colours and fine grain.
I've only been into photography for around six months now but this is my favourite film to shoot with. It's more expensive than some of the other Kodak stock but I personally think it's worth the extra money - the tones are beautiful and the quality of the photo overall looks better. I would definitely recommend.
