About Kodak

The pro-pak of 120 Professional Portra NC Color Film from Kodak is the consistent choice for beautiful portraits at any moment and under a wide variety of lighting. It could be the pose you've lit meticulously or a subject that's suddenly in perfect light. In either situation, you can capture every detail with Kodak Professional Portra 160-speed films knowing that you will get a sharp, fine grained image with good shadow and highlight detail.

Portra reproduces accurate and natural color across the entire spectrum. In addition, the fine grain of Portra permits you to print larger than traditional color negative films. Kodak's T-Grain emulsion produces a clearer and more brilliant print with excellent resolution and skin tones.

My new go-to film

As a fashion and portrait photographer I used to use Fujichrome Astia exclusively, since that slide film reproduced skin tones in a lovely and soft manner. Unfortunately that got discontinued (idiots...), so I had to find an alternative. I had already tried the new Portra 400 for some jobs and loved the latitude and very subtle grain on that one (check online for example pics of Portra 400 shot at ISO 3200, you'll love it!), so I thought I'd give the new Portra 160 a shot. Wow, what a film! I...

Wow, what a film! It's designed to be neutral, and scan well, so it's great for photographers who have a hybrid film/digital work flow like myself, the skin tones are fantastic, and slightly overexposing the film (shooting at between ISO 80 and ISO 125) produces great colors. This is a fantastic film with extraordinary range, not quite as versatile as the new Portra 400, but I prefer the skin tones of Portra 160 to Portra 400. Kodak has a winner on their hands with these new Portra films!

Is it me (and my lighting conditions) or

OK, glad that there IS still a Portra 160. But this stuff is contrasty in comparison to the original film. Darn that Kodak. Those flip cameras were definitely not worth sacrificing SUCH a great film....

Exceptional Skin Tones

By

from NC  -  Pro Photographer

When I need to shoot people and I have enough light, I always use Portra 160. It gives me the most accurate rendition of skin tone and comes out perfect. The only thing I do is rate it at 100 ISO instead of 160.. Some scanners and in labs make the gray come out too much. This can be cured by shooting it at 100. This film is great for any kind of work but I specifically use it for portraits.

just great

By

from Poland  -  Semi-pro Photographer

In my opinion it is the finest color negative on the market. ISO 160 is just great, fine grain, very good color reproduction just love it. To get the most of it take your time to scan it well (epson 700 or 750) Keep in mind that this is slow film so tripod is advised for indoors, and late afternoon Enjoy it! :)

This film is great for portraits, has great skin tones and smooth details with good contrast. ISO is the only limiting thing about this film.

Questions about this item:

Paul S  I can't seem to find a straight answer on this: What lighting is this film optimized for? Tungsten or daylight? Seems like daylight, but I'm not sure.
FIRASS A  This film is balanced for daylight. That being said, I love how it renders other light sources. I've had very nice tones in fluorescent light in particular.
