          Comments about Kodak 220 Professional Portra 400 Color Negative Film (One Roll):

          With Portra films, Kodak still offer the best alternative to digital images. Of course, it is expensive to get it processed, but the tender richness of colours make them an excellent choice for portrait. And no computer or hard disk are necessary to store negs safely for decades. Try a roll with your father's film camera and enjoy the feeling of getting a "real" picture of the people you love the most !

            If I had to have a one and only color film to use it would be this or the 160 speed of the Porta. The tones of the colors, the delicate appearance in the fine detail from the grain, it is like no other. Like a painting, or visual velvet as I like to call it ;)

              I don't know why it took me so long to start shooting Portra, but now I'm hooked! The best color negative film out there. Because of Portra 400 I'm putting down my digital more and more in favor of film.

                I prefer Portra 400 because it's an extra 1 1/3 stop and the grain is not too much more noticeable than the 160. It scans well too. I also like 220 instead of 120 because it's less expensive per frame, especially if you can find a good lab that does not simply charge double for processing 220 instead of 120.

                  I shoot weddings and portraits with this film on a 645 body. The grain is subtle (but nice!) and colors render very naturally. Another important quality is that it seems to scan very well, too. I believe my lab uses a Noritsu, and I've been incredibly pleased with the results!

                          Portra 400 is so versatile. I much prefer 220 over 120, it's a shame there are so few 220 films remaining.

                              If you shoot a lot and can't risk too much of a yellow or blue tint to your film, use the portra 400 it's versatile and has a nice slightly vintage look.

                                New Portra 400 is all you need. This film will yield usable negatives at -3 stops all the way to +4 stops, however I typically overexpose by one stop for the best color. Portra 400 delivers great skin tones and works in almost any lighting condition while producing very little grain (if any). I shoot this film with an RZ67 and love the 220 roll for 20 exposures. If I could only have one film for the rest of my photography career, this is all I would need.

                                    This newly released film replaces the previous 400NC & 400VC films by Kodak. PORTRA 400 film utilizes KODAK VISION Film technology, and Antenna Dye Sensitization in the cyan and magenta emulsion layers. Illustrious skin tones and spectacular color saturation over a wide range of lighting conditions can be achieved; while remaining fine grain and high speed. Great for portraits, fashion and travel. The sharpness and contrast are impressive. Ideal for scanning and enlargement options.

                                          Comments about Kodak 220 Professional Portra 400 Color Negative Film (One Roll):

                                          I have put about 10 rolls of this through my Mamiya 645 and I like the film. It's very similar to the previous Portra films and renders near perfect skin tones while having a fine grain and relatively good saturation.

                                            When done right, this can produce wonderful imagery, and it is especially useful in 220 format considering that it's like any other roll of 35mm film, except it's medium format and has far higher resolution. I've always used this for night shots as well.

                                                During a wedding ceremony I love having an extra 16 shots in the camera. This film is already incredible but having it in the 220 format is really great.
