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 really enjoy portra 400, you can't really go wrong with it because it's latitude is great, the only reason I give it 4 stars is the price vs something like lomo 400 which is pretty similar. I really enjoy the tones on portra 400 and it's especially great for portraits
id recommend portra 400 to an anyone just starting out with medium format and looking for a good stable colour film to learn with.
its wide latitude is one of its greatest features, rated at 200 the colours pop and the contrast rises a touch to give you a more punch image, shoot it at box and get those signature portra subdued timeless tones.
my only problem with portra isn't with portra per-say its more with the look it gives vs what i want to achieve.
i prefer to do as minimal post production to my work as possible getting as much out of the frame in the scan and doing the lightest of lightroom touch ups as a result portra while i love it is not the everyday film for me personally, its quite expensive (especially when shooting 6x7) and its just not the look i go for myself without doing a lot to it in post or shooting it as an overexposed speed
however it is a fantastic all rounder colour stock for most people and i cant fault it at all!
Amazing film with subtle, pastel colours. It really shines on a sunny day but can get muted and greenish on an overcast day. As its name says, perfect for portraits as it beautifully renders skin colour. If you prefer more saturated colours and high contrast, it might not be the best choice for you. The sample picture was taken on a Start 66 TLR.
I've never used film before but on a Yashica Mat the images from the Portra 400 are far better than I was expecting.
I shot in woodlands and the garden. it has a nice vintage feel about it and realistic tones. Most all the images I took were one stop overexposed. I feel I could have comfortably pushed it another stop, maybe two without blowing the highlights.
I'd have no issue buying this film again.
