CineStill 400D 35mm film is a fine grain daylight balanced colour negative film that delivers a soft colour palette with natural saturation and rich, warm skin tones.
The film has a wide dynamic range (hence its full name Cinestill 400Dynamic 35mm), with a base sensitivity of ISO 400, but it can be rated from 200 to 800 and it can be pushed up to 3200. This makes Cinestill 400D highly versatile, usable both indoors or in the studio, under virtually any lighting conditions.
400D was specifically designed for still photography to be processed in C-41 chemistry by any photo lab or at home. In addition, it also features a process-surviving anti-static lubricant coating ideal film for both manual SLRs and automatic winding cameras.
Cinestill 400D 35mm film continues CineStill’s ongoing tradition of cinematic film emulsions made for still photographers, allowing them to maximize their creativity and produce remarkable images that express who they are as artists.

Pleasing warm colours, very fine grain, and very versatile. Good dynamic range.
This film has warm and vibrant colours, with the classic cinestill red halation effects. I was pleasantly surprised to get such intense colour and still get good skin tones on my partner (who has Caucasian skin) but it did make my very pale skin look a little sickly in ambient light (I often have this problem with warm-leaning colour film).
I love film stocks with intense colour, but at £20 a roll I will favour Kodak's Ektar over this. It's nice, but not my favourite!
This was my first time using this film, so I didnt want to push the ISO too far and stuck with the 40. I took it along to an FC Copenhagen match, which was a night-time kick off.
I loved the red and blue tones that popped out of floodlights in this set. The mid-tones were also beautifully coloured. I would be really comfortable shooting this film provided I am in a situation where there is a lot of strong lighting. And would absolutely use again, and again.
Brilliant colour palette, epic for capturing the colours on moving f1 cars
I used this in Crosby near Liverpool on the Antony Gormley statues and I felt this film worked for this type of subject. It seems to be quite temperamental - I literally took all my shots within about 90 mins and I was rather surprised at the inconsistency of the results, I've included one of the scans here. I've since heard on FB groups that this film can be tricky to scan. I probably wouldn't use this for regular work but I do like the tone very much, very cinematic.
