"Customers asked for a black & white film with all the convenience they get with Portra colour negative films," says Kodak UK capture manager Ernesto Jaconelli, "and our response is Portra 400BW film. It's a 400 speed, multi-purpose monochrome emulsion that provides all the elegance of black & white and all the convenience of colour. It is designed for processing in process C41 alongside colour negative films and can be printed on professional colour negative papers, including Portra, Supra and Ultra 111. It is a superb emulsion for portraits, weddings and many commercial applications - and thanks to Kodak's T-GRAIN technology offers extremely fine grain and sharpness with relatively high speed. And labs can now provide a rapid turnaround with excellent black & white output in their colour negative workflow, with no need for a dedicated process."
Portra 400BW film's true 400 speed offers great flexibility and processing consistency. It also provides wide exposure latitude and delivers high quality prints from negatives exposed at speeds from ISO50 to ISO1600. It also boasts excellent latent-image keeping properties, giving dependable results even with delays between exposure and processing.
Available in 135, 120 and 220 sizes, Kodak Professional Portra400BW will be in stock at authorised dealers from June.
