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.

Not bad

800 didn't seem all that different than 400. I didn't notice any advantages in low light. That said, it is a forgiving film like 400 and easy to use, but I'll probably just stick with 400.

Perfection

Portra 800 is such a great film that you cant go wrong with. It works well in any lighting condition. The attached example shows how well it shines in golden hour sun! Can't recommend this enough.

High speed classic

Great warm film with classic Portra tones but at a higher iso. I use it for 120 shooting when I don't want to or can't use a tripod.

All-time classic for twilight photos

It's a Kodak Portra but with higher sensitivity, you know. So expect what you would expect from a Portra film: great, pastel colours, amazing warm skin-tones, a moderate contrast and high latitude but with 800 ISO. It has a noticeable grain in 135 format but it's greatly reduced when you're shooting on 120. So Portra 800 in 120 is really crisp, despite being a high-sensitivity film. You can't go wrong with it, unless you're a fan of high contrast and bold colours like the ones coming from a slide film.
