CineStill 800 Tungsten X-Pro Film Has a Unique Background


There hasn’t been a lot of good news in the film world as of late. With both Kodak and Fujifilm announcing downsizing and measures to cut spending, at least Ferrania stated that they’re still alive and kicking. But there is still hope, at least that’s what Japan Camera Hunter states. According to a blog post published today, a company called CineStill will be producing a brand new film–sort of.

The company is using rolls of Kodak Vision3 500T 5219, which is a motion picture film stock. It is supposed to give excellent skin tones and also allow for two extra stops of pushing or pulling. What CineStill is doing is taking rolls that were already cut and packaged by Kodak and rehashing it into what they’re calling Cinestill 800 Tungsten X-Pro. Kodak released a demo video of the film around this time in 2012. That demo video is right below.

Freestyle Photographic Supplies is selling the film for $9.99 a roll in the 35mm format. If you purchase it, shoot it at 400 or 800–according to what experts are recommending. More still photo samples are after the jump.
