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 was a bright but overcast day so the outside shots needed minor tweaking in photoshop but the colour was there to start with. A film I will return to
The perfect film to learn sunny 16, but then maybe consider leaving it behind so you don't get too comfortable. Portra will handle your (my) sloppy exposures by eye, which makes it great if you're used to a metered camera and want to try going it fully manual. The trouble is, it'll make you think you're amazing at judging exposures, and you might just pay for that arrogance when you switch to a less forgiving film. Plus, the world and his dog all shoot portra - it's good but it's not always worth the money. The grain is so fine, but then again, who's afraid of a little grain - we're analog photographers after all! Don't get me wrong, I love a bit of Portra, but it's not the most exciting stock!
First time using this and I love it!
Ideal choice for everyday photos for great colours and versatility!
Tried this out with a recently purchased Yashica Electro camera I was impressed by the accuracy of the colours reproduced . I was a bright but overcast day so the outside shots needed minor tweaking in photoshop but the colour was there to start with. A film I will return to
