To understand more about the details above you can check out our film guide or if you want some inspiration then head over to our page on choosing your next film. And if you want the full details about the film, including technical information, read about Kodak Portra over on EMULSIVE.


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.

Premium for a reason

The dynamic range and tones this film can muster are truly without competition , I prefer it in 120 but the 35mm results were fantastic, providing tons of versatility and beautiful colours but absolutely perfect levels of grain , would recommend for any pro out there

One of my favourite film stocks

Only had the chance to use this film twice so far but I love it. I've used it in both bright sunlight and dark city streets and worked great in both. Still more to test with it and if your not into slightly more grain this might not be the film for you.

Great tones, useful iso, reasonably low grain

I shot this film with an Olympus Om2n, 50mm f1.8 at one stop overexposed, during golden hour, and was extremely happy with the results. The skin tones in the portraits look great, and I am also really happy with the landscape shots. I'd recommend this film to anyone looking for a great emulsion that performs well in lower light. Only downside is that it is more expensive than the rest of the portra line.

Versatile colour film

I am always really happy with Portra 800. I do like a little grain in my film but I don’t think it is overly grainy. The colour balance is always really warm (if you prefer cool stick to Fuji). I always used to like Portra VC when it was made and it feels like this is what is was closest to. So handy for low light situations and great depth of field on a sunny day. Turn it up to 22! Always have a roll in my bag.
