My favorite Portra
I know Portra 400 is considered “the gold standard”, but man I love Portra 800. I’m a huge junkie for the versatility and grain of higher speed films, and this film delivers on those. If you want to keep your colors fairly neutral and get some more lowlight usage, give this one a try.
Nice looking film.
This film is very nice tones and it’s very pleasing grain current 800 ISO film.
I recently shot a roll of Portra 800 in a Rollei 35S and the results were amazing. The color was by far the best I can remember for color negative film.
I was never one to shoot much color negative film. My color films were Kodachrome 25 & 64 and Velvia 50. I loved the punch of color from those films, but Portra delivers an actual representation of the colors in a scene. The exposure latitude seems huge as I’m seeing great detail in shadows and highlights. Will definitely shoot Portra 800 again.
