Kodak Portra 160 reviews

Professional Portra 160 Color Negative Film (120 Roll Film) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 137.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this film. I love Portra 160. It's amazing for skin tones. All sorts of skin tones too. If you're shooting someone with darker skin for example, it's incredibly flattering. I also like how versatile this film is. I have pushed it 2 stops when I have needed to and it looks excellent and the colors still accurate . I know people who've pushed it 4 stops and say it looks great. Although I haven't tried this myself. This film also looks great if you 'pull' too. I.e if you rate at 80 and ask for them to process 1/3 stop under. It gives the film a unique look. It's hard to find anything 'negative' with this film. (Excuse the pun)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time using film in over 9 years. I recently purchased an old Pentax 645, a camera that I've wanted since they came out way back when. My plan was to use my D800e first and confirm the settings that I wanted on a particular shot and then bring out the 645 and shoot a frame or two. I've only had one roll developed so far, but I'm very happy with the results. I had one or two missed out of the roll, but the majority look great. And the misses were my fault, not the film's. The grain is beautiful and smooth and the colors were very natural. I'm enjoying my trip back to the prehistoric film days better than I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Skin Tones Who says film is dead?! This film is absolutely amazing. When you want absolutely the best quality of film, Portra 160 saves the day. Want skin tones that absolutely crush digital skin tones? Buy this film. Want to overexpose like crazy and still retain highlights unlike digital? Buy this film! Want to stand out in your photography above all the same old same old digital photos going around these days? Buy this film!!! If I could give this a 7 stars I would because the fine grains, the colors, the skin tones, the gradations are all unmatched. Gorgeous film!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful colours, fine grain I shoot this using a Rolleiflex 2.8E with Zeiss Planar lens. Beautiful colours, scans perfectly. Slow down, take your time and enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent choice for scanning. I use Portra with a Hasselblad 501CM and the resulting negatives produce a very nice color rendering that I would describe as mellow or pastel. I am not using it for portraits but for outdoor photography of aircraft. The negs scan very well and hold up to post process editing quite nicely. The included example has been edited in Lightroom to increase contrast and saturation but still retains the Portra look. I will be using this film extensively in the future based on my initial experience with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What can I add? I love Portra Looks great with people or landscapes, in sunlight or tungsten. Very versatile-- you can shoot in low light and push it with pretty good results. And despite it's versatility, it retains an identity. I like to overexpose it 1/2 or 2/3 of a stop (i.e. shoot this film at 100 iso, develop normally). Tends to give you more shadow detail without losing highlights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great option for portraits This is my go-to portrait film when I don't want to use small apertures. The only slower film suitable for portraits would probably be Fuji Reala 100. Ektar 100 just seems to bleed red, which is great for some things and maybe even some people, but not if they are wearing red for sure. I also use Portra 160 for some outdoor stuff if there is plenty of light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Film shooter Great for shooting in bright situations. Contrast is heavier compared to the portra 400. Can't be overexposed nearly as much as 400 without blowing out. I expose at ISO 125. Haven't tried pushing it yet. I imagine the contrast would be too much. Love the contrast and color of this film especially when it is paired with a nice lens.
