When it comes to a film, you get what you spend. Maybe this is not just limited to a film but it is true for camera gear in general. However, there is one exception to this rule. A Kodak ProImage 100 film is half the price of a Kodak Portra film yet, oftentimes, I can’t tell the difference between the two after film development.
Kodak ProImage has a very good dynamic range with beautiful color tone. Also, it has a rather perfect white balance. Under indoor lights or daylight, it makes a real color.
Usually, I like a Fujifilm better for the sky but Kodak ProImage produces beautiful blue sky color. On top of this, it has a fine grain. So when you take a photo of an object, you can almost feel its texture.
I shoot portrait photos with a Kodak Portra film. But Kodak ProImage is equally good for portrait photos.
The only disadvantage is Kodak ProImage offers only ISO 100 which is not good for indoor shooting.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive film, I’d like to recommend Kodak ProImage 100 film. It’s good for both portrait photos as well as landscape photos.
