I use this film for landscape and portraits. It's incredibly versatile and the color rendition is always spectacular. Images shot with this film have a subtle nuance and nostalgic quality to them. This film however does have noticeable grain in certain circumstances, so if grain is an issue I would recommend the 160 portra film instead of this. But all in all this is a great all around film and I use it almost exclusively for color photography applications

I took 20 rolls of this stuff with me to Hawaii. Normally, I would have gone with NC to do some washed out landscape work, just to do something other then the really poppy, colorful Ken Rockwell photos of the sunrise/sets on Astia. No offense Ken. So, I was going to go 400nc all day, when this "new" portra showed up on B&H. Lured like a total chump by this flashy new product, I opted to try this out instead. The stuff is good, I like it. No complaints, good contrast, blah blah blah. But I cant help but wonder if this new portra- which blends the best traits of NC and VC in one handy film, is here to replace my long time former friends. Kodak? What is going on. Are you outting the NC/VC combination? Film is a niche market- capitalize, not marginalize it. My suspicion is that this new portra will further widdle down our 120 film options leaving us with less options then a non alcoholic beer drinker. Protest this "new" film. Take a stand fellow film photographers. Continue to fight the good fight! Don't take a brain bath.

      Scans very well and produces beautiful skins tones. I like the look of this film for certain applications. Not super vibrant but not overly dull.

                The film is used in a Mamiya camera for my college major, photography. It's versatile and I use it a lot. Since I develop my own film for school projects, I need something reliable, and this is it. Some of my classmates say it's difficult to load, but I haven't found that to be a particular problem.

                  The film was delivered quickly, and seems to be just about everything you'd expect from portra. I've had some color shift but I think that's more my cameral than anything else.

                    This is pretty much the only film that I use- although I sometimes go with 160 speed, depending what I'm working on. I was a little concerned a few years back when Kodak announced they were discontinuing Portra NC and VC because I was a huge fan of the NC. Fortunately, this stock is very close to the NC. It's great product and any issues I've ever had have been user error.

                              Comments about Kodak Professional Portra 400 Color Negative Film (120 Roll Film):

                              The 120mm Film I received was great, there was a speedy delivery and its really a great product. Its the only brand of film I will buy, and from the most reliable company that sells it.

                                B&H typically has the best price on Portra, especially now that they do free shipping over $. I scan and c-print from this film, and it does great. I hope Kodak continues to produce Portra for many years to come.
