CineStill 50D in 120 is a beautiful film if you use it right.
We’ve updated our CineStill 50D review to include the 120 emulsion. 120 CineStill 50D came out after a campaign the company put out. So what do we think? Essentially, CineStill 50D is in some ways an unpredictable film. It’s gorgeous, but it will probably be never as popular as CineStill 800T. The reason for this is because of its very low ISO. Think of it in some ways like Kodak Ektar and Kodak Portra 160 put together. It’s capable of delivering some beautiful images but it’s also sort of unpredictable in that sometimes it leans more towards one emulsion than the other. It’s a gorgeous film and I’m sure to use it again perhaps when out and about hiking or something. But at the same time, I’m not sure why I’d particularly go for it vs Velvia 50 if I’m shooting landscapes.
