First let's put this out there, this film is a little pricey but what film isn't nowadays?
Cinestill 800T is a movie stock so you get that cinematic look and feel when shooting it but also the halation effects from the lack of remjet, if you don't want that and are happy to add an extra process to your development then fine but if like me you are both lazy and like that effect you're onto a winner.
I use this mostly for street photography when shooting in the evening/night or in dimly lit areas but it can also be shot in daytime with an appropriate filter applied to the lens and that is where this brings out a whole different quality. I find that some day light shots have an artistic almost painterly feel to them with this.
This is a film stock I have a very particular fondness for, I always have a few rolls kept in the fridge for specialist projects or occasions and always stock up when i can as this is very popular and regularly out of stock. Grab some whenever you can.
Love the cinematic tones of this film. Great for low light, and also balanced for tungsten light. When shooting in daylight however this film gives a colder blueish tone to the images. Strong highlights in the images have halation and glow with a red aura unique to cinestill. Film is more prone to light leaks than other stock which adds character to the photos .
Obviously this is a high iso film and therefore great for nighttime shooting. The film renders bright lights with a red glow which I really like, it’s not for everyone though. I found that when scanning and adjusting the histogram the pictures took a strong green tint which I wasn’t sure about so ended up adjusting the white balance.
There have been so many amazing photos taken on Cinestill and it's easy to see why, with the awesome background behind the film stock. Shoot on the same film that the best in Hollywood use for their movies, with the added 'cool' effect of halation!? No wonder it's the film stock for all the hipsters & trendy kids to put in their overpriced Nishika's.
I played around with Cinestill and was really impressed by the colours and the vibe captured. I shot it during day and night time, and got good colours and contrast out of it. My daytime photos were a bit hit or miss due to my beginner technique.
