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 used this film for a wedding and it really is lovely. It may be expensive but it's my go-to film.
Mix of portraits and street photos and the colours are amazing. They jump out in a very pleasing way. 800 speed, so its rather grainy, but that provides a good texture to the images and means the film is fast enough to be very flexible.
I've now used all the flavours of Portra (400 is still my favourite) and this is an excellent fast film. Gives great colours in summer or winter and can also be overexposed quite a bit, so if you find you're suddenly in bright sunshine then it can easily be shot at 200. Great stuff.
Well I had an idea for a victorian style shoot and wanted to try out an 85 year old Agfa camera which I have, it was a very controlled studio setup with the camera being the only anomaly. I use to use Porta for weddings years ago and knew the film would be up to the job unfortunately the camera wasn't focussing was about a metre out, however I still really like the results of my model Victoria Lucie (when using old cameras remember to wind the film on after each shot)
