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.

All-time classic for twilight photos

It's a Kodak Portra but with higher sensitivity, you know. So expect what you would expect from a Portra film: great, pastel colours, amazing warm skin-tones, a moderate contrast and high latitude but with 800 ISO. It has a noticeable grain in 135 format but it's greatly reduced when you're shooting on 120. So Portra 800 in 120 is really crisp, despite being a high-sensitivity film. You can't go wrong with it, unless you're a fan of high contrast and bold colours like the ones coming from a slide film.

Really lovely film. Beautiful saturated colours and grain not as imposing as I first thought.

I shot mostly over exposed rating the film at 320 or 400, film takes light amazingly.

Film arrived on time and very securely packed. Will definitely order again

My favourite film

Yes, my favourite film. You know, I tried them all, and although Ektar 100 has a special place in my heart, I cannot use that film all the time. Portra 800 on the other hand has a more versatile ISO speed that helps a bit when the sun goes down, and you forgot your tripod at home. I'm always amazed by its color rendering, and although the grain is a lot more visible than the other Portra films, I think it gives an atmospheric look to my photos. This is the only film constantly missing from my bag, it doesn't even make it to the fridge. I did stay away from it, mainly because of the praise that Portra 400 was getting from everyone and the price, but man, what was I missing...anyway, it's not too late.

Good for low light.

I like portra 800 in low light conditions, gives me a bit more control over my settings with the added iso and I think it still maintains a nice grain to the image
