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.

Wonderful film for portrait

What is there to say about the Portra 160 very versatile film great for portrait and landscapes, skin tones are fabulous on location or in a studio though a great light outdoors or soft light modifiers in a studio are necessary for best results giving very fine grain and overall colours.

Beautiful for landscapes!

As a newbie with medium format photography, I decided to take this film out for a spin during a trip to the The Lake District and I am so impressed with the results. It works extremely well in daylight, especially when it's sunny; and creates interesting effects when it's a little darker too. The colours are beautiful and there is little noise, making it perfect for landscapes and portraits alike!

Kodak Portra 160 120

Huge fan of this film, especially on brighter, sunnier days. So little grain, can be shot well in lower lighting conditions too. Scans amazingly well.

I’ll be leaving reviews throughout the website with pictures for full frame scans, so if you’re like me who loves to see the entire image and border, you can see what the results will be like.

Unbeatable tones

Shot a few rolls of this film in my Pentax 6x7. Cannot get over how beautiful the tones are. Highly recommend exposing at iso 125 to get more shadow detail and more pastel tones- a very desirable look that can only be produced by Portra. Highly recommend this film to anyone looking at shooting a range of subjects, however, the higher ISO offered by Portra 400 may result in it being more versatile and usable in other conditions.

Excellent Film

If you've got enough light and want some very fine grain this is an excellent film for nature and portraits.

Very subtle colours and excellent skin tones.

Less forgiving than the 400 so needs a bit of extra attention to get the exposure right.
