This film does beautiful things with light but to get those moody night time shots be prepared for some long exposure times. You will need a tripod! This is a very sensitive film and my first few shots had light leaks so handle with care when loading, unloading and developing if you want to avoid these.
This is a film that might take a few rolls to perfect so best pop more than one in your shopping basket! But if you love the look, the results will be well worth it.
I've shot about 3 rolls of CineStill 800T so far and developed 2 of those rolls my self and had great results. It's a really fun stock to shot!
As cliche as it sounds, it does make everything look somewhat cinematic. Probably because it's Kodak motion picture film stock.
I use it mostly for low light/night street photography as it can be pushed as much as 3 stops and stills look great. Although it's called 800T (T meaning tungsten balanced) this is definitely not 800 ISO stock. It's 500 ISO, not a big deal but it is something to bear in mind as rating it at 800 will technically cause you to underexpose which does produce a slight colour shift. Personally I like what happens when you over and underexpose this film.
One of the most notable features of this film is the red halation it produces around highlights, particularly specular highlights. This is something that people love cinestill for but, having shot a few rolls of it now I am noticing that the amount of halation varies from roll to roll. Sometimes the halation is pretty extreme and almost overpowers the image. Other times it's very subtle.
If you like shooting low light or just like experimenting with unique stock definitely give 800T a try!
Throw your pro mist filter out and shoot at night with this wide open. The halation on this film is super unique to the remjet removal. It's not for everyone but i personally love it! one of my favourite high speed, shortly behind Superia Venus. This being tungsten balanced, i would watch out in sunlight as the colour reproduction can be a bit strange, but if you're lucky enough to own or work around some nice old tungsten lights, this is definitely a film that you should consider
Really pleased with the results from my first attempt shooting this film - it captured dark streets and neon lighting beautifully and even managed to pick out the detail on glitter curtains reflecting the headlights of passing cars. I think I was overcautious and used the flash when I didn’t need to with this one so looking forward to shooting another roll without the flash and seeing what comes back.
There isn’t a tick box for this very specific category but this is 100% the film I wanna take to capture the bright lights of Blackpool illuminations next time.

If you take the time to experiment with this stock under different lighting conditions, it can deliver incredible results. Although the high ISO does give you more leeway for underexposure than most stocks on the market, this is not a magic film and benefits greatly from proper exposure. The red halo effect does limit its uses somewhat; I took some long exposure night photography of office windows and the halation is a little strong for my liking. However, the tones are still strong and for interior portraiture, cinestill 800T really excels.
Just be mindful that you may have a few more unexpected light leaks with this stock than you are used to.
