Kodak Portra 400 overview

  • 1Description

Kodak's Professional Portra 400 is a high-speed daylight-balanced color negative film offering a smooth and natural color palette that is balanced with vivid saturation and low contrast for accurate skin tones and consistent results. Utilizing the cinematic VISION Film technology, this film also exhibits a fine grain structure with very high sharpness and edge detail. A micro-structure optimized T-GRAIN emulsion makes it especially well-suited for scanning applications, and advanced development accelerators offer extended versatility when enlarging. This film has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° and is particularly well-suited to portrait and wedding photography, as well as nature, travel, and outdoor shooting with moving subjects, or when the lighting cannot be controlled.

This item is one 36-exposure roll of 35mm film.

Kodak Portra 400 reviews

Professional Portra 400 Color Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 270.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistent!! Best for the money, best for the color, best in class!! Portra is seeing its best days. The color accuracy is incredible. In the digital age with seemly unlimited digital storage, I wish it came in 72 frame rolls. Guess I could roll my own. Portra is an excellent front runner in the 35mm film world and I will continue to use it regularly. I now use my digital SLR as a sidekick to my 35mm film camera because I am so please with the results and the am in love again with the photographic process. Waiting to see the image and not letting the LCD on the back of my camera get in the way of making my work. Keep on producing Kodak, we're still here!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good 400 color neg Long story short: Shot at EI 400, it's at least as fine grained as Fuji 200;shot at EI 200 it is definitely finer grained. But underexposed by a stop it shifts blue, underexposed by two stops it's blue, quite grainy and loses shadow detail. Handles 2-3 stops overexposure well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Consistent All-Around Film It's worth to me to pay a little more for Portra 400 because it is such a great film. It scans well, has great latitude, and is great for portraits and general use. I know that with its longer range I am capturing as much information as possible, more than digital, and I can control most other characteristics in editing process just like a raw file. It's simply the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still the best! As a working professional, I have recently switched back to shooting film for some clients, and the results I am getting with this film are getting better all the time. When this film is properly exposed ( actually, I overexposure by 1 stop for the best results) and scanned properly, the results are SUPERB; far exceeding the quality I was getting from my top-tier digital equipment. Film is still better looking with less post-processing and less expensive equipment. If your clients are willing to wait a few days for processing, I couldn't recommend this film more. Fine grain. Punchy, perfect color saturation. And best for me, it handles mixed lighting with aplomb, allowing me to focus on the shot and not worry about environmental factors as much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Who says film is dead? I got tired of the flat skin tones I got from my CMOS sensor DSLR (If you don't know what I'm talking about, google it. CCD's are much better at low ISO). I had heard that portra got great skin tones, so started looking on the internet. The flickr page of portra pics was very helpful, and convinced me to try it. I was not disappointed. I over-exposed it by a stop, as many people recommended, and had it processed at box ISO. The colors from the scans are beautiful, the skin-tones are smooth, not flat and grey. The airy light look of film is very refreshing - just make sure you keep the shadows light. This film also scans very well. The grain is very fine, giving it a smooth quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-to film for any kind of portraiture! Whether I'm shooting a model at a location, my sister cheerleading at a high school football game, an engagement session or anything in between, Kodak Portra is my absolute go-to film for portraits. I know 400 - 800 film speed is choice for indoors, but I personally love to shoot this stuff outdoors on an overcast day because it looks beautiful when overexposed correctly. Skin tones looks fabulous, the grain is hardly noticeable, and it actually cuts my time down tremendously with post-production work -- I rarely have to touch things up which is one of my main reason for shooting film! Kodak Portra is a 10/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing latitude! What's not to love about this film? The grain is much improved over just about any other ISO 400 film out there, including the previous Portra NC and VC. But the big story is the film latitude. Box speed is 400, and it looks great. You can push this to ISO 3200 and have very usable images (I've done it!). Shadow detail isn't great at such an extreme of course, but the result is more of a high-contrast look, with grain still being vey acceptable. I've even shot with it uprated/underexposed at ISO 1600 with NO PUSH, and the results are very nice. Perfect for wedding/event photography, when you used to have to resort to b/w 3200 film to capture anything in extreme low light. Now color is truly an option for dark interiors and hand-held shooting. But wait, there's more! You can expose this at ISO 50 or 25 even (overexposing 3 or 4 stops) and highlight detail is maintained extremely well. This film has a useful ISO range of 7 stops. A single film stock can cover just about all your exposure conditions. I'm liquidating just about all of my other film stocks because of the new Portra 400.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for 35mm! This is like film from Area 51! It can be used between ISO 100-400 with little change in quality, it pushes better than anything I've ever seen, totally usable when shot at and pushed in development to 1600. It's the finest grained 400 speed color film I've seen, and scans great. Huge dynamic range of around 18 stops, and very consistent rendering. It's just incredible stuff. If you like the warmer Kodak tone, than this will be a favorite no doubt. Truly stunning film. It replaced my D700!
