What the world needs right about now is more medium format film: and that’s exactly what the Brothers Wright are looking to create. CineStill announced a new Kickstarter initiative for a medium format 800 ISO 120 film. Like their first entry into the market, this one will be Tungsten color balanced. They’re calling it 800T, and again it is rebadged Kodak cinema film. This time, they’re using Kodak Vision 500T film— which is probably the 65mm film version but rescaled for medium format still camera bodies.
CineStill states that each roll of the film has 250 exposures and medium format 120 film has on average around 12 exposures if you shoot in the 645 format. So each roll could be split into around 20 CineStill films.
The film is said to work with regular C-41 processing–which means that it can be developed at many local stores. One of the biggest things about this film though is the fact that there aren’t very many high ISO medium format films left and available in color–so this would open up new possibilities for medium format shooters everywhere (myself included.)
