    That came quietly, New Kodak Film!

    Kodak Have upgraded Portra 800



    Improved KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA 800 Film
    Kodak has also improved its PORTRA 800 film with new high-efficiency emulsions. KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA 800, part of the renowned PORTRA color negative film family, and the fastest professional 800-speed film on the market, now reproduces skin tones and colors with more accuracy under a variety of light sources. This high-speed film also features finer grain, improved sharpness and exceptional under-exposure latitude.

    “PORTRA film is one of the icons in Kodak’s film portfolio and our improved PORTRA 800 film introduces outstanding features that will enable professional photographers to deliver stunning images with natural skin tones, fine grain and beautiful color in low-light conditions,” said Hellyar.”

    Improved KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA 800 film will begin shipping to retailers this month.
    Didn't think It had been that long since the last time this film was updated.

    It was announced at PMA, although quietly. There is also a mention in the latest Shutterbug.

    I note that it is available in 120 and 220 as well.

    I also note the reference in the press release to an improved 35mm film base material, with better anti-static characteristics.

    Anything that helps with dust deserves it's own press release, IMHO :rolleyes: .

    I would rather that they canceled this new product, and gave us back Panatomic X, Super XX, and the ortho copy films. What is color film good for, anyway?

    Always nice to see more options out there for us consumers. While I don't generally use films of that speed, it is nice to know that such films are still being developed.
