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.

There's a reason that this is the film choice for many. It has such great flexibility and reliability. Beautiful colours!
Amazing film, even better in 120! Holds on to
highlights really well. I metered with an iPhone app and as long as you understand shadows midtones and highlights you will be fine. Colours are amazing. My only concern with getting deeper in to medium format and film photography generally is Kodak’s price increases. I feel on the cusp of being priced out - especially once processing is taken in to consideration. This isn’t a reflection on analogue wonderland - they are great, and always have great service there. For me personally I will shoot it for the special stuff, and when I know I can take my time!
I believe this film has become the default colour negative film for those who require quality results with a bit more flexibility than the slower films available.
It's a fast film but gives a smooth rendering and subtle colours that one would have associated with slower films in the past.
It allows photographers a bit more headroom in selecting smaller apertures or faster shutter speeds without any noticeable loss of quality slower emulsions. Or of course being able to take photographs in lower light.
I've also heard that the film is a good choice for those getting scans from the negatives.
It's the best of the best. Absolutely wonderful for portrait , creative, landscapes etc. You can't go wrong, and that little extra makes all the difference.
Portra 400 is the go to film for most photographers which is not surprising. It has amazing latitude and can handle any situation you throw at it. The 160 version of Portra has better skin tones (which it's designed for) as I find the 400 version leans towards yellowish tints on lighter skin. I also prefer Fuji Pro 400h's colour pallet. However, no other film makes me feel safer then Portra 400!
