Kodak Portra 400vc (120, 400 iso) user-review

3

This film gives excellent colors, they are rich, bright and clear. Skin-tones are great. The colors just pop off the photo.

These images were shot using Kodak Portra 120, 400 iso film. The results do vary.

  • Strengths: Vivid Colors, Minimal Grain, Great Skin-tones
  • Weakness: Not good in Overcast weather conditions
  • Cameras used: Holga, Pinholga, Lubitel and Mamiya

There is very minimal grain for 400 iso. The only problem I found with this film is that it doesn’t do well in high contrast areas or with overcast skies, the colors seem to just dull out and loose there saturation.

After all VC stands for Vivid Colour and thats pretty much what you get.
