Portra 800 is very similar to Portra 400 but with more noticeable grain and slightly more contrast.  It has warm tones, very good exposure latitude, and while its grain is more noticeable it’s still very pleasant looking.  Its higher iso makes it ideal for lower light shooting.

This film is simply sublime. Great in 35mm but shines in 120. Minimal grain with excellent saturation. Perfect for those night time shoots photographing neon lights. Give off a classic Hollywood look without halation. Great for portraits as well for its ability to render true to life skin tones. Not cheap but worth every penny.

I love shoot Portra 800 in 120 since the grain is barely noticeable and the 800 iso makes it very versatile for my medium format cameras that don’t have fast lenses. This film is amazing for portraits and ideal for lowlight hand-held shooting.
