The folks over at CineStill have finally got CineStill 50D in the 120 format ready. CineStill 50D, for the uninitiated, the a low ISO, fine grain color negative emulsion. It is Kodak Vision film repackaged for 35mm and now 120 use. The difference is the removal of the remjet layer which lets it be processed C41 typically. We’ve reviewed the film in 35mm format and we’ve also used it in some of our review.
CineStill’s press release, which we have early access to and they’re allowing us to distribute early, is after the jump. Plus there are tech specs and sample images.
- Color Balanced Daylight (5500K) color negative motion picture film stock for use as still photography film
- ISO 50/18° in C-41 or ECN-2 Process
- Factory spooled with self-adhesive labels inside
- Remjet backing free, resulting in a unique halation effect
- Unrivaled highlight and shadow latitude
- Dynamic accurate color rendition
- High resolution with maximum sharpness
- Enhanced Scanning Performance
- Great for portraits and landscapes
- Recommended to process C-41 without worrying about remjet
Greetings fellow film makers and film shooters! It is with much excitement that we finally get to announce the Pre-Sale of Cinestill 50D in medium format!
Throughout the crowdfunding campaign, it was amazing to see the support for 800T in medium format. After reaching our goal for 800T, we set our sights on bringing 50D to 120 as well. You made your support for it clear so we made it our mission to make it happen. Sadly, we fell slightly short of our stretch goal which could have secured enough funds for its own simultaneous medium format production run alongside 800T. But we remained determined to make it happen.
We built a whole new production facility, encountered many challenges and wound up doubling down, dollar for dollar, to fulfill the dream that we shared with thousands of analogue Film Makers. Following the fulfillment of the 800T 120 Alpha and finally the full retail release, we continued honing our process to a point where we could further invest in our vision to make the world’s finest grain color negative film for the world’s finest format!
So, without further ado, we are excited to announce that we’re finally bringing 50D to the world of medium format! We’ve opened pre-orders on our store so you can be among the first to get your hands on 50D in 120 this summer!
We are continually thankful for all of the support and faith of this awesome community, and are immensely grateful that we get to bring such an exciting new film stock to the market. We’re going to love shooting it just as much as you, and we can’t wait to throw a roll in our cameras!
Click the link, preorder, and be the first to shoot Cinestill 50D in 120!
Stay golden film shooters, the renaissance is still silver!
Yours in analogue,
One roll of CineStill 50D in the 120 format costs $11.99. That’s not bad considering how fine the grain is.
