Film Review brief Summary

Introducing you another essential film manufactured by Kodak and which is quite popular in the market with it’s well known character for natural skin tone and ideal for most lighting conditions. Kodak Portra is another popular stock film in everyone’s fridge including myself. Except Agfa Vista 400, it is the second film that I used extensively for my work.

Colour and sharpness

It offers a natural skin tone which is great for shooting portraits. The most distinct character of it is that other film will result in a slightly reddish skin colour and it is quite obvious when comparing with different film using the same lens, such as Agfa Vista 400 and Kodak Ektar 100. The tone from Portra is definitely better as it has a more comfortable colour.

Also, it is suitable to be used in different lighting conditions such as indoor, outdoor and low light situation (at night) and achieve its natural colour palette whereas Kodak Ektar 100 offers you more contrast and saturated colour. Personally I like Portra more than Ektar as it is more “all-rounded” to be used for different kinds of photography  except landscape. I prefer Portra to be shot with street photography and portraits, while Ektar’s character is more deep and better to be used for landscape photos.

I normally only use Portra 400 during my trips mainly because it is more expensive than other colour negative film available in Hong Kong but I think its quality is much better. It is great for street photographers who wants to achieve a consistent colour rendering. Especially if you are a warm tone person which choose Kodak over Fujifilm.

Compare Kodak Portra 400 with Agfa Vista 400, Fujifilm Pro400H, Fujifilm X-tra 400 and Kodak Super Gold 400

Agfa Vista 400 has more reddish skin tone, super sensitive to red colour and saturated colour, sharpness is lower than Portra 400.

Fujifilm Pro400H achieves a more pastel colour palette but the grain is more coarse than Portra 400. So Portra 400 has finer grain. But both has really good highlight details without overblown and great to pushed with.

Fujifilm X-tra 400 has greenish tint and coarser grain but price is relatively cheaper than Portra 400 but it has discontinued in 2017.

Kodak Super Gold 400 results much warmer tone than Portra 400 but it is not as sharp as the Portra. But is is cheap bargain for serious film shooters.

Film is very pushable

To be honest, I haven’t tried pushing the film or overexposing it at different ISO speed. But from what I have heard from other film users. They like it to be overexposed 1 or 2 stops to give you or pushed at ISO800 and still give you an optimal result.

Film: Fujifilm Superia Premium 400

Circular train and the golden pagode shwedagon brought me to the heart of Myanmar. Yangon is unlike other part of the country, it is quite similar to other South East Asian country having roads packed with vehicles. But their kindness and friendly smile on their faces are the most unforgettable experience and something I felt different from the others.

The three hour train ride is probably the best getaway from the crowds. It runs through all the local suburbs with people boarding and departing in short period of time. It is cheap and you can stay there as long as you can!

JCH Street Pan 400

An alternative for Black and White Film Shooters?

I am always so excited whenever there is new film launched in the market, so I picked few rolls of JCH Street Pan 400 out of curiosity. I pre-assumed that this film is just a normal black and white film with high contrast and little details. But after the film was developed by lab. I was happy with the result and decided to try few rolls more. I spoke to the lab about it and they said the film base is similar to Rollei/AGFA, very thin and top and bottom unexposed areas are transparent after developed.

 JCH Street Pan 400

Character: High contrast with fine grain structure

 


The Reborn of a Surveillance film

JCH Street Pan 400 is not having a newly invented emulsion, it is an old discontinued surveillance film that was made by AGFA. In 2016, Bellamy Hunt from Japan Camera Hunter decided to bring this film back to life. JCH website mentioned that It has high sensitivity to red lights, and it is optimal for different weather conditions and under low light environments.

Contrast and Greyscale 

The contrast of JCH Street Pan is fairly high at box speed. But it helps to bring out the mood with such contrast level keeping a great tonality. It has rich greyscale, but not as broad as Kodak Tri-X and the tone is great for street photography which performs really well under different weather conditions. So you don’t have to worry about getting a grey and flat result on a cloudy day as other black and white film needs more sunlight and push the film to get the same tonality.

Compare JCH Pan 400 with Kodak Tri-x, ilford HP5 (Grain, Contrast, Mood)

I would describe JCH Pan 400 is a film between Tri-x and ilford HP5, a mixture of both. JCH Street Pan 400 is characterised by its fine grain structure. It is not as grainy as Tri-X or HP5 and the grain structure is similar to HP5. It can easily render the mood that I want at box speed. However, to get the same mood with HP5 or Tri-X you have to push the film to ISO800 or even 1600.

This is the second city that I have visited in Spain. It is quite different from Barcelona and somehow I like this place more than that. Photos were taken during the first day when I arrived in the city. I quickly grabbed my camera and rushed to Plaza de Espana and the sunset in there was beautiful after that I walked along the river side and try to capture something interesting.
