      Comments about Kodak 8 x 10" Portra 400 Color Film (10 Sheets):

      Let's be honest here, you didn't take up 8x10 photography because it was cheap, right? That being said, the cost of this film really gives you pause before taking a shot. It's absolutely wonderful stuff, though. The images are just beautiful.

        Comments about Kodak 8 x 10" Portra 400 Color Film (10 Sheets):

        It's really great that we continue to have film available in large sheet sizes in this digital era. I've been using this film on sets that are dimly lit intentionally, so Portra 400's versatility and push-ability makes this an ideal product for me. I still feel that the textures and details that get captured in a shot on 8x10 is unmatched by digital means.

            Comments about Kodak 8 x 10" Portra 400 Color Film (10 Sheets):

            The new Portra is versatile, sharp, and really everything you could want in an 8x10 color film. I shoot portraits outdoors on heavy overcast days so the fast film speed is essential,and everything from skintone to landscape is dead on. Highly recommended!
