Kodak Portra 400 35m 36exp Film Professional 5 Pack
About this deal
Kodak films do tend to give your photographs a warmness, especially when compared to typical Fujicolor offerings. Portra 400 is no different in that sense, and I think it’s that warmness combined with the more muted colours that brings it so many fans. For years, professional photographers have preferred KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA Films because of their consistently smooth, natural reproduction of the full range of skin tones. In that same tradition, the new PORTRA 400 Film is the ideal choice for portrait and fashion photography, as well as for nature, travel and outdoor photography, where the action is fast or the lighting can?t be controlled. There’s not much to say about the image qualities Portra brings to your street photography that wasn’t covered in the last section. The cleanness, sharpness, contrast, and muted colours just work.
The Kodak Portra film is a daylight-balanced film with a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400. This enables you to capture a range of photographs including the shots where the lighting situation cannot be controlled. Designed especially for portraiture, travel, nature, wedding, and outdoor shoots (including moving subjects), this film is a versatile accessory. It is suitable for all the film roll cameras with a 35 mm format. What's in the box?Choose KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA Films for natural skin tones, ideal colour, and finer grain in every situation. Day or night, studio or location, candid or posed, KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA Films deliver: As the old NC and VC versions were consolidated in 2010 due to the increase in digital processing going on, improving the scanning performance for the new version as Kodak did was a natural step forward too.
For better or worse, a lot of hobbyist film shooters want a certain vintage look. With its sunny feel and colours and contrast that enhance a scene without making it unrealistic, Portra seems to deliver exactly what they want.

At this point, Ektacolor and the original Vericolor films were discontinued.Thanks for an interesting article and some nice photos Simon. I don’t believe that “correct” exposure is an absolute value for any scene that contains a range of light values. If you use an incident light meter and stand in the spot you want to “correctly” expose you will get fairly close. Or you could use a grey card with a reflected light meter the same way. But a reflected light reading from the camera position ( with say a Weston reflected meter or through the lens) will never give an absolutely correct exposure. One stop increase from 400 Asa to 800 Asa is not much difference for a colour negative film ( not pushed in processing) that might have 4 stops useful latitude. Then there is the question whether you equipment is correctly calibrated. Your combination of camera shutter, lens and meter calibration could easily be one stop different from another combination. Push processing usually increases contrast. The new Portra 400 Film is the world?s finest grain high-speed colour negative film. At true ISO 400 speed, this film delivers spectacular skin tones plus exceptional colour saturation over a wide range of lighting conditions.
