Nice and sharp (sample image is good enough and it's been pretty heavily cropped) with a pleasant grain. It has latitude but it's worth pushing if you're shooting above 800 or the colours get muddy - otherwise the colours are great.
The halation around high contrast - like exposed lightbulbs or specular reflections - looks great but requires these things in the shot, so can still be avoided if you're not a fan. The red/orange of the halation complements the blue, cold tone of the film quite well so it does some of your colour composition for you - luckily it looks more Blade Runnery than something by Michael Bay.
On a couple frames from one roll I did see some red lighting-like marks which i thought were light leaks. Turns out it's static from the friction of me winding to the next frame too quickly in dry, cold Scottish winter. You might want to avoid this but it's something Revolog found a market for with Tesla 2.
This was my first iso 800 film and I loved experimenting with it at nighttime and low-lit indoors. In my opinion, not really suited for daytime, but if you don't mind the grain and the blue tone, then it might as well be perfect film roll for every situation
WOW, I was so impressed with this film when I got it developed, I used it for a series of nightscapes and the results were spectacular. There is virtually no noticeable grain which is amazing for an 800 speed film, and I was pushing it to ISO 3200 as well. The colour saturation is superb too, with rich and vibrant colours right across the spectrum.
There are few films that are instantly recognisable (especially for the right reasons), Cinestill 800T is hands down one of the kings. I decided to try this stock for it's low-light capability, but also to satisfy my curiosity having read/heard mixed reviews. I have shot many rolls of 800T since my first from Analogue Wonderland, and do not intend to slow down any time soon. In comparison to other ISO 800 colour films, this is certainly one of the more interesting, with a unique character attributed to it's original form - Kodak Vision3 motion picture film (500T, I believe). Many people like to shoot this slightly slower than 800, but I have only ever shot at box speed without and issue. Try it. Don't look back.
I love this film. If you too enjoy the aesthetic of the images it can produce then I don't think you'll be disappointed with it. You do need to be careful with exposure as it's not a hugely forgiving film but when you get things right I think the results are awesome. The halation effect gives wonderful red fringing to most light sources and works best when you use it subtly for that pseudo cinematic look.
