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

      Great high speed color film

      By Frisinator

      from Massachusetts

      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!

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

        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.

          For urban styled shots I love the blue and grays this film gives. It can be a little grainy though.

          Worth the dough

          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.

                                                I use this in 120 format in a 6x6 camera where I need to use existing light only indoors. Many museums will allow photography but not flash, and I have been photographing museum interiors using this film. With a little care it can be hand-held - and with better than average indoor lighting the speed and quality are more than sufficient.

                                                  I use porta 120 film in my holga and other medium format cameras and love how the colour turns out. Reliable film that I can use in a not so reliable camera. Great for more overcast days and inside with low light. Seriously beautiful colours, especially if your looking for a shot with a lot of mood to it.

                                                  I would buy this product again but do prefer Porta 400 for everyday photography.
