Needless to say it needs light being ISO 50. I took a role out on a bright sunny day and at around f8 was getting 250 - 350 in the sunlight, but in a slightly shaded area it dropped to 15 or so, so beware if you don't have a tripod.
Out of the can there was a slight green cast, but easy enough to clear with nice reasonably saturated colours. I did notice on two or three shots there was some red fringing - see photo crop, may have been the equipment, but only happened in a couple of shots, other very similar ones didn't have it. Not the end of the world though.
I like it, will I buy a more? Not often as its a bit low speed for most cases and I tend not to use tripods. But when its nice and sunny it's worth a go. I have another 3 rolls to try out.
If you are shooting with your back to the sun, or it is high in the sky, then this is a lovely portrait film. If there is any light source in the frame then the halation become an issue (unless of course that is why you are using this stock in the first place!)
So, when I got my scans back on this, I thought one thing, and one thing only - this would make for a great spaghetti western. The film results in very clean images, with an almost faded feel. Vintage motion picture. The colour detail is there, just... vintage. In scenes with lots of pops of colour, I felt underwhelmed, but in normal city scene usage the resulting effect is a lot of fun.
I did some animal and landscape shooting as well. Landscapes come out very nice, with good detail. Animals are sharp, and with excellent contrast.
Skin tones are very... gentle, shall we say. Probably not the best for portraits, but wouldn't be terrible with the right lighting.
When you need a film to deliver great colours in bright conditions Cinestill is excellent. Very little colour correction needed straight from scan.
I tried the Cine Still 50D for a portrait shoot on location on an overcast day and it didn't disappoint. I fell in love with the colour rendition and the contrast straight away. When the scans came back from the lab I was impressed. I have re-ordered some rolls from Analogue Wonderland for more portrait shoots.
