When you love the colours that the Potra 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.

I bought this film for dimly lit interior shots, and it did not disappoint!
Gorgeous colour and soft contrast, and its sharpness will make you double check that you really have loaded ISO 800 film.
I've also used in daylight at EI 400 and it produced some great colours with reduced grain.
My favourite film stock so far!
Used it during a travel trip during the winter. Perfect for the low light conditions of the season while still getting the classic Portra look. Comes with a compromise of some grain but the results are still amazing.
Stunning images, probably the best of any high ISO film. The colours are rendered with a beautiful pastel dream quality, flattering yet accurate and true. The grain structure is exceedingly impressive for ISO800, in terms of grain it may also be the best too. It's more expensive, but you get what you pay for. Results with Portra 800 are better than Portra 400 being pushed a stop. A quality film for when you need it. Faultless.
If you plan a photo shoot, wedding or something, with a lot of faces and makeup and costumes and whatever, don't save, spend some good money on Portra. Portra 160 was a staple stock for children's school photoshoots in the US, but you want 800, because in life, you don't want to put people on spots and make them not move for a second. If you want lively pictures of alive people, Portra 800.
I shoot a lot with my Nikonos and its great for capturing above and below water. Would highly recommend if you are looking into starting this type of shooting!
