Kodak's Professional Portra 160 is a daylight-balanced color negative film offering a smooth and natural color palette that is balanced with medium saturation and low contrast for accurate skin tones and consistent results. Utilizing the cinematic VISION Film technology, this film also exhibits a very fine grain structure with high sharpness and fine 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 160/23° and is particularly well-suited to portrait, wedding, and commercial photography, as well as other general applications.

Kodak Portra 160 reviews

Professional Portra 160 Color Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Digital Printing I shoot this at the listed ASA of 160. I have had good luck with skin tones of dark and light people in natural light, and very good to excellent results with studio lights (several small flash units, not large studio strobes.) The photos I attached were outdoors with existing light, and they scanned quite well. I happened to use NCPS in Carlsbad, CA, but I also like The Darkroom in San Clemente, CA. Both of these places do great work and high resolution scans at the time of development. Portra 160 has accurate color; However, the scans tend to come out a little flat very much like a digital RAW file that needs some work to get it to look it's best. With minimal post processing, the results are very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Well Upgraded Portra Currently on location in Central America shooting a project. I was slightly hesitant in buying the new Portra 160 blind, but I'm glad I decided to trust Kodak and my great history with the old Portra 160NC. This new Portra utilizes the best of 160NC and 160VC and combines them to make a powerhouse of a film. Having shot two rolls since my arrival, I am have been nothing but amazed with the results. Crisp images, fantastic color saturation and skin tone, well, they're the best I've seen on any film! Highly recommend this product. Do not be hesitant to try this new portra, the results will surprise and amaze.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Softer, pleasant film I usually shoot entirely in black and white, but I picked up some Portra 160 for a recent trip to the mountains, so I do not have much experience with this film, or color film in general for that matter. Overall nice rendering, however, I prefer my colors to be bit more saturated. This makes for an excellent environmental portraiture film. The blues in eyes really pop, and it gives a softer, less contrasty look, which is preferred for most portraits. I picked up more for future portrait shoots, and look forward to using it. I slightly pushed it to 200 for my trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portra 160 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

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting film This film is unique, the ISO rate makes it a little confusing to meter, but maybe is just because I am a beginner But I liked it and I'll continue shooting portra, just to learn more about it. I started shooting 2 rolls and I send them to develop to a local lab, but the photos came out like if they did a cross-process. Next time I'll send them to a better lab just to see if it was the film or the development.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Scanning The colors are very true to life. If; However, you want more, it is easy to push in post. This film is so forgiving. It likes to be slightly over exposed. Skin tones are very good from Irish freckles to Deep Dark Browns...simply beautiful. I get my film scanned at high resolution at the time of development, and the files that I get back are very nice. I have some 20x30 inch canvas prints that look very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning results I will have to say that this is by far the highest quality film that I , or any of my friends have ever had the pleasure of shooting with. I shoot with an AE-1 and a handful of different plastic point and shoots, and the portra 160 never fails to produce stunning results. If you shoot film, and you haven't experimented with this yet, it is definitely worth the shot. And the prices on B&H are as low, or equally as low as any of their direct competetitors and are always a reliable source of delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as it gets Truly wonderful film that is absolutely great for scanning and then editing on a computer. Creates a perfect blend of old and new school photo technique. If I knew then what I know now... I never would have bought a digital camera, but kept shooting film and use this hybrid process.
