Cinestill 800T overview

  • 1Description

CineStill 800Tungsten Xpro C-41 Color Negative Film is re-formatted movie stock that has been prepared and packaged for use in still cameras. Utilizing a unique "Premoval" stage, the traditional anti-halation rem-jet layer has been removed from this film, enabling its development in C-41 chemistry as well as the motion picture standard ECN-2 process.

Benefitting from the distinct qualities of a high-speed motion picture stock, this color negative film is balanced for tungsten, incandescent, and fluorescent light and exhibits a nominal sensitivity of ISO 800/30°. If exposing under daylight conditions, an 85B filter is recommended along with exposing the film at ISO 500 for normal results. The high film speed is ideal for working in difficult, low-lighting conditions and is also well-suited to push processing by up to 3 stops.

This item is one roll of 36-exposure 35mm (135) film.

High-speed ISO 800/30° tungsten-balanced movie stock has been packaged and prepared for use in still cameras.
Unique "Premoval" stage eliminates the rem-jet anti-halation layer to make it suitable for C-41 processing. Processing can also be done with ECN-2 chemistry without worrying about the rem-jet layer.
A distinct halation effect produces glowing highlights from strong light sources.
Specifically designed for use in low and difficult lighting conditions.
Emulsion has been optimized for a hybrid workflow and is ideal for scanning.
Film responds well to push processing up to ISO 3200.
  • Recommended ISO rating and exposure index rating for push processing:
    • ISO 800: No push; EI 200-1600
    • ISO 1250: 1 stop push; EI 800-2000
    • ISO 1600: 2 stop push; EI 1250-3200
    • ISO 3200: 3 stop push; EI 1600-3200 (with increased contrast)

    Cinestill 800T reviews

    800Tungsten Xpro C-41 Color Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful tungsten based film... A fantastic film for shooting under tungsten and mixed artificial lighting. I've shot through a bunch of this stuff lately and getting my local lab to develop it, scanning it myself has been easy, and I'm very happy with the results. Not only is this film extremely helpful for those shooting under tungsten lighting, but it opens up a whole new world of creativity for those looking to shoot indoors or under the city lights at night. This will have a permanent place in my film fridge, over all a wonderful film to work with, scan and/or print. It also looks great under natural light when metered around ISO 400 or 500. I have been mostly shooting it at box speed, of ISO 800 or even 1000 without a push, and the results have been very pleasing for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Stills Film I've been Waiting For For years I've wanted a high speed, tungsten balanced stock to use for stills just like I've always had with movie film. Now that Cinestill 800T is here, I feel like I can confidently abandon my digital cameras. I've even shot this under waning sunlight without correction. It's easy to balance in scanning (so long as you have your own scanner at least), although I'd recommend rating it at 500 ISO under sunlight, even without a filter. I like the halation effect but that's really a matter of taste.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing film! I've used this film for indoor and outdoor shooting, day and night. It performs better than fujifilm 1600 for night time urban photography (I shot the SF Wharf using it). I've also shot indoor performances without flash, and used it with an 85A filter for bright daylight photography. The film does react a bit to bright street lights, giving them a distinctive reddish flow and halo, and it is very light sensitive, so load it in the dark. I've shot a dozen rolls, and had great success. It also scans very well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Film for the night This film is tungsten balanced so for artificial lights it looks different then what you'll get from lets say Kodak Portra 400. The film creates this halation from strong light source, and I think this could be a like or dislike situation because at time its eye distracting I think. Also this film is not cheap so I'll stay away from using it for random street photography. I think this could be a really nice night portrait film though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing else like it! For my senior thesis we get assigned a personal project, I chose to photograph the city of Philadelphia at night with Cinestill 800. The shots came out better than expected; The overall look the film gives is amazing. Plus the wide dynamic range of the film is great for night shooting. I don't think there's another option out there for my style of shooting. I look forward to their 120 stock!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic film for artistic effect and low-light There are a few idiots who have said that this is basically Portra film. This is incorrect, as Portra is a daylight-balanced film, and this is tungsten-balanced. This is Kodak 35mm movie film that has been cut and packed into 135 cartridges, but because it is not pre-exposed with frame indices and bar codes, it will not work with automated processing and the frames will not be indexed. Keep in mind that tungsten means it was designed to work in conjunction with incandescent cinema lighting, not mercury, sodium, fluorescent, or other incandescent white balances, so don't expect consistent results if you aren't familiar with the type of lighting you're using. Electronic flash will look too blue, and you probably won't need flash anyway, but it works well with clear or amber-coated flashbulbs. I've gotten exceptional results at night without flash, shooting at 6400 ISO. Be aware that because the remjet layer is gone, you will see halos around bright spots, so use them to your advantage. When in doubt, it is better to underexpose than to overexpose this film. The purpose of this film is not to make your photographs look like movie stills, but to create unique effects and give you more flexibility when shooting in low-light situations. I would say this is the best high-speed tungsten film currently in production.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from poor quality control In the past I have been very happy with Cinitsill. However the last four rolls I ordered were defective. I sent them to NCPS in Carlsbad with many other rolls of Kodak and Fuji C41. The Kodak and Fujicolor came back as great negatives and scans, however the Cinestill film was all defective. I have sent all my Cinestill to NCPS in the past with great results, but this batch was obviously bad. I have attached an example of both a good result from the past and the damage film from my last order.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Film, Amazing Latitude I shot this on a Pentax ME SE with the Pentax-M 50mm f/1.4. I metered for ISO 1250 and pushed it 2 stops when processed. The results were awesome! Scans really well, too.
