      Comments about Kodak Portra-800 120 Professional Color Print Film (ISO-800):

      This was my first attempt to go above ISO 400. This roll was purchased specifically to photograph old vintage automobile fanatic's gathering. This is an evening event. Most of the vehicles considering attention normally arrive past 7 p.m. The available light is scarce and sky was cloudy. I was surprised with my results. The is very little noise, detail is well preserve in shadows and highlights. TLR was hand held. No flash was used.This is an excellent C-41 process film. I will definitely purchase few more rolls for my weekend excursions into forest or by the beach.

        Great Color. Landscapes are great. Shadows are limited by the fact that it is film. Does best when over exposed one stop.

        Comments about Kodak Portra-800 120 Professional Color Print Film (ISO-800):

        I'm using this film in a very old toy camera from the 1960s. It helps me produce dreamy images with great color. It's the only choice for me!

          I've shot portra 400 a lot but never ventured into the 800 version fearing very intrusive grain. I`m happy to say, I'm extremely happy with the results. The color rendition and tones are fantastic and the grain is barely noticeable. Highly recommended for any type of lighting condition! Wish the price would be lower but hopefully someday as more people start using, prices would go down.

            Comments about Kodak Portra-800 120 Professional Color Print Film (ISO-800):

            Buy film not megapixels. Portra is truly a one of a mind and very beautiful emulsion. You get what you pay for and this is worth every dime. Incredible clarity and beautiful grain for a hi speed film.

              I use this film with a Holga which has a fixed shutter speed of 1/100 and a diaphragm that offers cloudy or sunny so obviously you need fast film and the Portra 800 works beautifully. The color reproduction and saturation is stunning even working wih a $29 camera.

                    I have always loved the color palette of the Kodak Portra films but had never used the 800ISO before. However on this occasion I needed to be prepared to shoot in heavily overcast weather so I thought I'd give this a try. I'm glad I did. The color was beautiful. I used it with my Hasselblad and got stunning results.

                            Unfortunately, this is one of the only color ISO 800 films out there anymore. But at least it's also the best. Grain is fine, relatively speaking, of course. Color reproduction is faithful considering the speed, and you can push this film a stop -- even two if you don't mind the grain.

                                        Great film. It has an amazing response on the hardest lighting conditions.
                                        I used it mainly at night. Colors had a great saturation as well as blacks are very rich.

                                              I mostly use it in my Holga and it works great.

                                                This is my go-to film for almost any natural light situation. Great for people photos, great colors in general with good contrast. Incredibly detailed for a high speed film. Along w/ Tri-X this is my favorite for my medium format people shots. High speed lets you shoot hand held. Highly recommended.
