Amazing Latitude

I shot a few test rolls when doing a family shoot and there were a few problems with proper exposure (my fault), but when I got the film back from the lab it all looked fabulous! Overexposed AND underexposed still looked great. NO muddiness at all in the underexposed frames.

Excellent choice for 400 speed film

By

from Albuquerque, NM  -  Semi-pro Photographer

For unrepentent "filmies" like me, Kodak Portra 400 is a good choice when you need 400 speed. It occupies the middle ground between the high contrast of Ultramax 400 and the softness of Fuji Pro 400H. Good color saturation, neutral balance. An excellent general purpose film.

One of the last great fils

By

from San Jose  -  Casual Photographer

There are not many ISO 400 color films left, but luckly Porta has made the cut. The colors are great, the grain reasonable, and easy to scan.

What can I say? It's my favorite film.

By

from San Francisco  -  Pro Photographer

I love this film. Usually I shoot it straight with one of my old Nikkormats. It also looks bangin' when I push it to 800. I've been all around the world with Portra 400. Someday, I'm sure, it'll be discontinued. Then I'll cry, and switch back to making photocopies of my heinie.

Portra 400

By

from UK  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Portra 400 is a real nice film to use. Nice colour tone and range. Fairly fine grain for 400 speed film.

A good 400 Neg film!

By

from NYC  -  Pro Photographer

Still holds up to what my expectations were from 400NC (may it rest in peace), a solid film, a future classic!

Perfect for skin tones

By

from Sunnyvale,CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I used this film in variety of situations including back lit sunsets. i must say this film has very broad latitude for exposure.I exposed for the face but background did not blow out.Something i cant imagine with digital. Skin tones are perfect without any unnatural looks. It feels so real like you can touch it(with correction like smooth skin filter in digital). I am digital shooter but got very impressed with this film. Now I do most of people shot with film. i used some other films as well like superia/kodak gold/cn41 etc but you get what you pay for.

Pastel color

By

from London, OH  -  Casual Photographer

Interesting stuff, almost has a painting like quality to pictures of people. Love the pinks, browns and greens. Compresses the gray scale with the low contrast nature of this material. Where Velvia is Neon, Portra is Pastel.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
GEOFF B  I liked the old Portra and LOVE the new stuff. It under-exposes nicely and can over expose with great latitude.
Shopper  can this film be used in a Nicon Pronea (APS) camera ?
Johnny M  No, it cannot. APS cameras require APS film. Portra does not come in APS. Currently, there is no manufacturer making new APS film. If you want to use your Nikon APS camera, you'll need to purchase expired film elsewhere. Some types of expired film will give you perfectly normal looking photos such as recently expired Fuji Superia APS film but Kodak's APS line was halted longer ago and will give you more grainy, darker, color-shifted images. Some people, particularly those who use Lomography products, enjoy these organic qualities of film. I would highly recommend though, that you pick up a 35mm film camera, such as there are many on Adorama like the Nikon FM10 or Vivitar V3800N and then you can use Portra and other high quality, easily processed 35mm films. Good luck!
