    Although I haven't yet had a chance to get this particular roll of Portra 160 Color film developed, I know from past experience that it is a superlative product.

    This is why I purchased it from B&H. And if I quite intentionally purchased it from B&H, it's because I have every faith that B&H doesn't sell shoddy or outdated products of ANY kind!

    Clean, snappy portraits- muted color

    Clearly designed for weddings- film slants heavily towards vibrant whites in the highlights (for the wedding dress) and generally has a clean, inoffensive feel to it.

    Clearly designed for weddings- film slants heavily towards vibrant whites in the highlights (for the wedding dress) and generally has a clean, inoffensive feel to it.

    I do not reccomend it for anything but formal portraiture, colors are washed out and lack any punch. I prefer the much cheaper Kodak Gold for people photos; skin tones are much warmer and more personal.

      Comments about Kodak Professional Portra 160 Color Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures):

      Irony is alive and well! In the age of DSLR ascendancy, Kodak's film products are the best they have ever been. Portra's skin tones are unrivalled and the 160 ISO version has a pleasing fine grain along with those trademark Kodak blues and yellows. Shoot at 100 ISO and then pull a quarter stop in processing to keep density and protect the highlights. Five stars all the way! - PK

                I use it for both portraits and landscapes, bought 50 rolls for a project I just finished in Kenya, I'm excited to see the films. I've used this in the past for an exhibit in Chelsea and one at NYU, the response was amazing. Thank you!!

                  I use this film when I know I'll be shoot outdoor portraits or street photography in bright open areas. I typically shoot the Portra 400, but this obviously has its own uses. The grain is a bit smoother than the 400. This film is absolutely fantastic for skin tones

                  Comments about Kodak Professional Portra 160 Color Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures):

                  Loved my first 3 rolls of this portra 160. Same great rich color tones that I get from the portra 400, with less grain. Great for outdoor shooting, or any where with good lighting. Not so good for indoor/low light situations as your shutter speed will have to be pretty slow.

                                      I'm generally a 400 ASA film shooter but you can't beat the skin tones of Portra 160. Also, it has a smooth, fine grain that scans really well. Portra is pretty much the only color film I use these days. It's so sharp and consistent.

                                              I have tried a lot color and bw films before. This is the best with very small grain and fantastic color.

                                                I continue to exhibit my images in shows & juried competitions.
                                                I continue to shoot film as I love the look of it, even if it's scanned & printed digitally...you can still see the difference.

                                                  Great for portraits, makes skin tones look amazing!

                                                  I even love the way it looks with the ocean, though it's usually not recommended to use with landscapes, it can achieve nice neutral effects.

                                                    Probably my favorite color film. Always rich and bold. Especially good in daylight. Natural tones, very true to life. I always use this when I go on trips. Perfect for travel photography.
