CineStill BwXX is an emulsion first used in 1959 to shoot movies in Hollywood studios. This black and white 35mm film is now available for UK photographers to create their own unique vision!

BwXX is officially rated at ISO 250 for Daylight and ISO 200 for Tungsten light, although photographers shooting at ISO 200 are highly unlikely to see any difference in the negatives.

Versatile, easy to work with under many conditions

Still one of my favourite B&W stocks, I’ve used for a variety of different projects from landscape to portraits.
Great under low light conditions with a couple of stop pushes.
Nice fine grain and lovely contrast.

Perfect for clear days

One of my preferred B&W film for landscapes on a clear day - particularly along the coast or industrial estates. Using this at night or on really cloudy days probably won't allow you to get the best out of this.

Love It.

My first roll of BwXX was shot over the last few days under a mixed bag of lighting conditions, from indoors window light, bright sun and backlit in the shade. It handled all very well. Nice fine grain too. I developed it in Cinestill Df96 Monobath. Simples.

Sharp in the day, charismatic at night

First time out with this film, super sharp during the day, and surprisingly well at night. Definitely recommend as a black and white film.
