The perfect go-to film, there is little not to like about this emulsion. Portra 400 Professional offers excellent colours, it is fast enough for the most situations, and even though it is 400 ISO, it still produces high quality and fine-grained results.
It is a part of the Kodak Portra range of professional quality, daylight-balanced, colour negative films. Well known for producing natural-looking skin tones, with high detail and fine grain. It is also known for its natural warmth, like most Kodak films. Portra 400, in particular, has undertones of orange and yellow.
Compared to its main rival, Fuji Pro 400H, it will produce warm tones. While the Fuji film will give cooler tones. This is a general rule when comparing Kodak and Fuji films. The unique Portra colour palette has made it an especially popular choice for portraiture and editorial work.
Portra is a highly versatile film that has impressive latitude for over and underexposure. It can do everything. Overexposing by two stops makes your images bright and colourful while underexposing it a stop gives you a moody and contrasty look. You can even push it up to 3 stops and still maintain its high quality.
The new version of Portra 400 was introduced in late 2010. This film essentially combined the old NC (natural colour) and VC (vivid colour) versions while incorporating some technical advances from the Kodak Vision motion picture films. Additionally, Kodak Vision technology makes Portra an excellent film to scan.
