The famous stock that is Kodak Portra 800 colour negative film needs very little by way of introduction. It is, quite simply, one of the most popular films on the market today and not for no reason. For film photographers working with a good amount of light, this could even be the perfect film.
This film is part of Kodak’s professional-quality, daylight-balanced Portra range. Well known for producing natural-looking skin tones, with high detail and fine grain. Like most Kodak films it’s well known for its natural warmth and vibrancy.
Kodak Portra 800 portrays soft and natural skin tones with an extremely fine grain. The colours lean more towards Kodak Ektar rather than to its Portra 160 and 400 siblings, with punchy tones.
