Kodak Portra 800 35mm Film 36 Exposures

Kodak Portra 800 35mm Film Single 36 Exposures needs little introduction. It is one of the most popular films on the market today and a favourite choice for a huge amount of film photographers.

If you have plenty of light, then this is the perfect film. It renders skin tones soft and natural looking while the grain is fine. The colours tend to lean more towards Kodak Ektar compared to Portra 160 and 400, with tones coming out punchy and vibrant.

It is worth noting that while Portra 160 and 400 are based on the Kodak Vision technology, Portra 800 is not. Therefore there are some significant differences between how the films handle. Consequently, the 800 ISO label is slightly misleading, as it is arguable that Portra 400 does a better job at 800. While Portra 800 is better suited to being overexposed, therefore shot at a lower ISO such as 400. At the end of the day, it is down to personal preference, but it is certainly worth experimenting with the two films to find the right one for you.

It can take up to 4 stops of overexposure, and still maintain glorious results. However, underexposure quickly adds grain and renders colours muddy. So you need to be careful with your exposures, and make sure there is plenty of light available if you want to get that classic Portra look.

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.

Compared to its main rival, Fuji Pro 400H, it will produce warm tones. While the Fuji film will give cooler tones. The unique colour palette has made it an especially popular choice for portraiture and editorial work.

Kodak Portra 800 35mm is available in single rolls only. It is also available in medium format.

2 reviews for Kodak Portra 800 35mm Film 36 Exposures

  1. Ray Rapkerg

    Okay, the price is a bit bonkers, but this is an absolutely marvellous film. How on earth does Kodak get it to be virtually grainless despite being ISO 800?! Nothing like this was possible back in the days of film, which shows that film technology has continued to progress even during the digital era. I don’t think it is overdoing it to say Portra 800 is one of the most impressive colour negative films ever invented. I always get fantastic results with this film, which makes it worth the money for me. However, if you don’t need ISO 800, you could save money by shooting the ISO 400 version.

    Beautiful in sunlight, atmospheric at night. I have used it for various subjects and the quality, detail and fine grain even at 800 can be seen in the results compared to cheaper film. If you like to shoot day and night, this is the ultimate colour film.
