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.

Amazing!

Absolutely adored using this film, I’m in my final year of my photography degree and this was the first time I’d experimented in my practice with colour film. The out comes were amazing! The colours are so vibrant and choosing 160 gave the perfect amount of grain I was going for! Could not recommend it more and cannot wait to use it more often in my work from now on.

Kodak Portra 160 - 120

Absolutely love shooting this film with my Halina AI (120mm). Found it worked really well for both landscape and portrait shots.

Kodak Portra 160 - 120 Film

First time using the 160, I usually shoot with 400 if it's Portra. Consistent film on location. Would highly recommend.

Great film to shoot in broad daylight. Ideal for portraits, renders skin-tones very true to life. Consistent and reliable results. Can be easily pushed whilst retaining details.

Not the most interesting, but gives good, reliable results.

I found the scans to be quite flat on this film. It works good with some scenes, however I personally added back a bit of contrast and saturation. I shoot Portra 160 at 100 to get some more shadow detail, since it has such good exposure latitude, the highlights won't be effected at all. Plenty of detail to be pulled! The grain appears almost non existent on this film which makes the results from it look really clean. Will definitely buy again, but Portra 400 might be better in some situations since I found myself struggling with low shutter speeds when shooting wide open!
