I used CineStill 800T as the other film stock in my 35mm camera on a shoot for a personal project in a derelict location where natural light was beautiful when available and I wanted to give the images that "cinematic" look that everyone who used it raved about I was very pleasantly surprised by the results from the feel and look of the scanned negatives. That film has really the quality that it is attributed by many. Besides it really complements the story telling of my project. I'm so glad I picked it out for that project.
Of all the films I’ve used, this was the one I was most looking forward to shooting. Everyone i’d spoken to thy had shot it was raving about how amazing it is.
Started this roll pre-covid, and didnt have an opertunity to finish until now. The hype had all but dissolved with the misery of life, until the photos came back.
The temperature, cast and atmosphere of this very unique film is exactly what I’d hoped it would be. It’s got such a strong vibe to it, it’s instantly recognisable. It REALLY does make every shot look like a screen grab from an 80s/90s movie.
It’s worth every penny of its asking price, and a contender for my all time favourite stock.
Used this film for the first time to do some night shots, such a unique look and I love it!
Firstly, this is a great colour stock with a 'cinematic' palette. Yes, I know, 'Cinematic' is a lovely vague word often over used. But as many may know Cinestill is a repacked kodak picture film. You can DIY and play around with Kodak Vision but remjet aside, Cinestill gives you the opportunity to produce nostalgic shots often suited to nighttime work.
However, this is not a great all-rounder. It's also not super fun for beginners. Cinestill advise you use a 85 orange filter. I can't stress how much this helped improve my work. I shot a few rolls and had to spend so long in post fixing white balances and working in calmer colours.
There is a lot of hype around this film. Many folks will swear by this and talk for hours about hallations etc. This film is expensive, fact. If you're keen to replicate the popular movie looks then I highly recommend this film stock. However, if you're new to colour or just want to shoot casually stick to some cheaper fuji stocks. I've shot Fuji C200 in low light with neons etc and theres not a huge difference.
The high ISO of Cinestill is also more likely closer to 500, going of the original stock. But exposed correctly, you can really get some amazing night work. Overall, its a fun, but expensive way to experiment with a timeless look.
I grabbed a roll of this to try out ahead of going to a festival this summer. I figured it would work well for evening shots as well as daytime with an ND filter. However, obviously Covid had other ideas!
So, I was left with trying it out in the daytime. In a lot of sun. And I used ND filters to make things more manageable. But to be honest.... don't use this in the daytime. Yes, I know it's a fast film but it is also meant to be a bit flexible. I don't mind a bit of grain in my films but this just isn't nice. And the colours are harsh and unpleasant, as well as being stubborn when post processing. This film is also known for having a bit of a halo on high contrast areas which might work nicely for neon lights but I found it just made my lens looking like it had an issue (it hasn't - the lens is fine).
I'm honestly not sure why I've had such bad results with this film. It's repurposed from Kodak cinema film and I've shot with the same cinema stock and got great shots. But for me it just looks like the dodgy film you'd get for free 30 years ago - not something that is much more expensive than other films on the market.
Maybe I should try it at night. But to be honest, I'd rather push some 400 film. Sorry!
