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.

Ptetty good

Kodak Portra 800 is quite possibly my favourite colour negative film. I say that as someone who’s just committed to shooting only P3200 and Ektachrome E100 for at least 6 months in a bid to learn these two returned-to-market films from Kodak properly.

Perfect for low light scenes

I love Portra 800 as a versatile stock. Works well in low light scenes and daylight.

Only negative is it’s a bit pricey!

Versatile

Such a great film stock that I have yet to get bad results from. It is a little pricey but it's worth it seeing those Portra tones come alive in lower light scenes!

Good to have in the fridge

A useful film for low light. Unobtrusive grain for a fast film, great colour saturation.

It took me longer to get the look I wanted than I was used to with Fuji 400 ProH. That film scans well using the dedicated Silverfast NegaFix profile; with this (and Portra 400) I get more pleasing results by profiling every frame individually. This is not an issue if you use a professional lab of course.

I am happy with the results I got from Portra 800.
