ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 14, 2010 – Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) today introduced the new KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA 400 Film, featuring the finest grain structure available in a 400 speed color negative film.

‚ÄúThis new PORTRA film follows a Kodak tradition of looking across our multiple business lines and leveraging our innovative technologies to make even industry-leading products better,‚Äù said Steven Decker, General Manager, Film, Paper and Output Systems, and Vice President, Film, Photofinishing and Entertainment Group, Eastman Kodak Company. ‚ÄúThe new KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA 400 Film is perfect for scanning and enlargements, two key components of today‚Äôs photographic workflow. At the same time, we‚Äôve preserved the attributes that photographers have come to expect, like the unmatched skin tone reproduction of our PORTRA family of films.‚Äù
For years, professional photographers have preferred KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA Films for their consistently smooth, natural and beautiful range of skin tones.
The new KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA 400 Film utilizes optimized Emulsion Spectral Sensitivity and Image Modifier Chemistry, Kodak‚Äôs Proprietary DIR Couplers and Micro-Structure Optimized T-Grain Emulsions. It is an ideal choice for portrait and fashion photography, as well as nature, travel and outdoor photography, where the action is fast or the lighting can‚Äôt be controlled.

“The new PORTRA 400 Film’s skin tones are spot on without compromising saturation and contrast,‚Äù said Jonathan Canlas, a noted professional wedding, portrait and commercial photographer based in Utah, USA. ‚ÄúAnd for someone who scans film in house, it could not be easier to scan in terms of density and color. This new film delivers consistent and reliable results under a myriad of lighting situations.”
