I recently got into Medium Format film photography and wanted a good overall color film that has the flexibility of lower light requirements. Portra 400 is excellent for this and Im amazed at the images I get.

The world’s finest grain high-speed colour negative film
At true ISO 400 speed, this film delivers spectacular skin tones plus exceptional colour saturation over a wide range of lighting conditions.
For years, professional photographers have preferred KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA Films because of their consistently smooth, natural reproduction of the full range of skin tones.
In that same tradition, the PORTRA 400 Film is the ideal choice for portrait and fashion photography, as well as for nature, travel and outdoor photography, where the action is fast or the lighting can’t be controlled.
This film is well-priced at Precision Camera, one of the best prices in the country, and as a result, shooters need not ever stoop to Ultramax.
Shooting this right next to other films really gives you a sense of how good it really is. I actually thought there was something wrong with my camera but it turns out I was just using inferior film!
The name says it all. Portraits. It renders skin tone beautifully. Landscapes comes out sharp and preserves all the highlight. This film can take +4 to -2 of push and pull and will still come out great. With my Pentax 67, its all I need with my travels and portraits. You will not be disappointed.
Fine grain, natural color, terrific latitude (especially overexposure), excellent saturation, best balance. If you are shooting color film and dont mind a tiny bit of grain there is quite simply no better film stock available. Forget Velvia, forget Provia, even Ektachrome.
I use a lot of different film stocks but this one is by far the most versatile, in both 35mm and 120. Ive rated it at 200 and processed it normally with great results. Ive also rated and pushed it to 800 and 1600 with great (800) and good (1600) results.
SRS had the cheapest price I could find online for Kodak Portra 400, my order arrived swiftly with no delays. The film itself is fantastically versatile, with a box speed of 400 I managed to push it to 800 in order to shoot in lower light conditions.
Fine grain, nice colors, scans nicely. Versatile film, I use it for everything when I want a 400 speed color film. Highly recommended.
I shot a roll of this film both outdoors on a clear and sunny morning, and indoors as well in much lower light, and I was very pleased with the results. I used an Olympus OM40 on aperture priority set to ISO 400. All shots had good colour reproduction with no cast to any one colour. All shots were properly exposed BUT on some I over-exposed so clearly this is a requirement to get the best out of the film. This KODAK film gives better, warmer colours than the equivalent Fuji colour 400 film which I found needed a lot of over-exposure and still had a faint greenish cast.
