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.

It’s is the middle man of colour film I think, solid and stable. I tend to try and shoot this at 200 (because, you know, that’s the done thing) and do very much like the results, had to fault.
AgfaVista 200 was my go to for many years (because it was super cheap) shot at 400, but tastes change and Portra 400 is rapidly becoming my film du jour.
10/10 love this film, and i normally stick to black and white.
the colours this film creates are just beautiful on the eyes, the tones, the shadow, the contrast is just perfect. when I think of film it reminds me of holidays as a child and this film invokes the same feeling that the memories give me.
very highly rated 10/10
One of the best colour films to there. Try exposing for 200 ISO for some beautiful tones!
I've tried quite a few films, each one with its own charm (each one is nice in a different way, it's good to try a variety), but the Portra 400 has a lasting impression on me and I always make sure I have a roll or two on hand in the fridge.
The colour rendition is out of this world. Many colour films tend to have a very slight characteristic tint to them (though this can work in some situations) but I find the Portra 400 colours to be the most true to life and particularly beautiful with pastel tones. Truly excellent for Portraits and special days and memories you want to capture.
The grain is exceptional too. Out of all 400 speed films its one of the best (or THE best) in terms of grain. I dearly love it. I like to switch around my films a lot to get a bit of variety (they're all like old friends with their own quirks and characters), but sooner or later a roll of Portra 400 goes back in the camera. For a special day out, special occasion or get together with the family this is usually the first choice of film I load up in the morning.
It's not my personal first choice for landscapes but it certainly does well at that too, rendering gentle easy on the eye soft colours. For people though it excels well above its peers. For street photos, portraits, wedding pictures it (anything with people), and treasured moments, it will not let you down. And for those purposes, so far (to my knowledge) there is nothing better.
