Kodak Portra 160 reviews

4 x 5" Portra 160 Color Film (10 Sheets) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Just People I use Portra 160 to complement the Portra 400 and Ektar 100 that I also like to shoot. I shoot a lot of colour negative film. Portra 160 has the very best rendition of human skin (any race), natural colours and textures and the brilliance of natural illumination -- especially bright and sunny scenes. I use it for studio work, landscape work and even for long exposure night cityscapes. This last use is not its strongest suit. Portra 160 holds the colours together well on long exposures but reciprocity failure becomes quite strong as exposure times lengthen. For anything over a few minutes I would double the time you think you need as a starting point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Tonal Range Next to B&W film, this film has the widest dynamic range of any color film. While many would not use this for landscape photography, I use it for just this purpose because of the beautiful tonality. Any of its shortcomings for this purpose such as lack of color saturation or color balance can be corrected by computer, whereas dynamic range can't be corrected. This film has enabled me to get certain images impossible to accomplish even by HDR digital means.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I've been shooting it at box speed and the results have been stellar. If you are looking for creamy skin tones, great scanability and amazing blues and greens, this is the film for you. Although Kodak says this is more like NC than VC in terms of saturation, from what I have seen its actually in between the two. I just hope Kodak will continue to make this film for as long as I don't grow tired of carrying around 4x5 equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than Digital Best film ever. Way better than digital!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best flesh tones. Photographing large groups (200+) of people outdoors in sunlight, no fill light. Scan in, output digitally. This film is close to neutral. No red faces. Excellent tonal range. No single color pops just attractive, accurate and honest subject representation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional film for exceptional artists With the demise of film in most new cameras, finding suitable products for professional work is becoming harder. Only the best can survive in such a market and Kodak Porta 160 for 4x5 is still available due to its superior properties. It must be the best film currently available for 4x5 colour photography. Rich beautiful skin tones unmatched by any digital counterpart. On the downside, it's becoming hard to find 50 packs making the less economical 10 pack the only option. Let's hope this film is available for years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Detail and Skin Tones 4x5 Portra 160 allows you to accurate render the world with detail and color accuracy beyond any medium I have ever used in photography. You get the detail and scale of 4x5 and the best tones and contrast available on film. In my opinion this is the best film stock for photography, period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sooo expensive but worth it? I think? I wanted to go back to 4x5 film after a while spent with my canon 5d mark II. But wow, so expensive for 10 sheets! and they don't even make boxes of 50 anymore. I'm disappointed and sad about dying film. But this isn't the place. anyway, you can't beat portra 160 4x5. Unless it's 8x10
