When you love the colours that the Portra emulsions provide but anticipate doing some low-light film photography, then ensure this 35mm film has a home in your camera bag! More sensitive, rated at ISO 800, but with the beautiful saturation and soft contrast consistent across the range, the Kodak Portra 800 is a late-night favourite.

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.

Out of all the film stocks I have tried so far this is my favourite. Stunning colours and works well in daylight and low light/night time settings too.
Kodak Portra 800 is quite possibly my favourite colour negative film. I say that as someone who’s just committed to shooting only P3200 and Ektachrome E100 for at least 6 months in a bid to learn these two returned-to-market films from Kodak properly.
I love Portra 800 as a versatile stock. Works well in low light scenes and daylight.
Only negative is it’s a bit pricey!
Such a great film stock that I have yet to get bad results from. It is a little pricey but it's worth it seeing those Portra tones come alive in lower light scenes!
