Kodak’s New Portra Color Negative Films
While film news here will be scant, Kodak did introduce two new color negative films, actually updates on their professional Portra emulsions in the ISO 100 and 400 speeds. There are four in all, with two being NC ("natural color") and two being VC ("vivid color.") The retouching layer has been eliminated from the back side of the film, making them eminently more scannable. Kodak says that it has incorporated all their latest research into these films making them finer grain, sharper and with better color and dynamic range than films in the past. True, if there's one thing film has over digital it is the ability to handle a wider exposure range, especially in the highlight values.
