CineStill Film 50Daylight 120 Overview

Producing a cinematic image quality for still photographers, the Cinestill 50Daylight 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 low-speed motion picture stock, this daylight/5500K-balanced film is well-suited for outdoor shooting in bright conditions and exhibits a nominal sensitivity of ISO 50/18°. If exposing under tungsten/3200K-balanced lighting conditions, an 80B filter is recommended along with exposing the film at ISO 12 for normal results. The slow speed of the film offers extensive control over the highlight regions of a scene, maintains accurate, yet dynamic, colors, and is ideal for portraiture and landscape photography. Its high degree of sharpness and fine grain structure is also particularly well-suited for scanning.

This item is one roll of 120 format film.

Low-speed ISO 50/18° daylight-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.
Emulsion has been optimized for a hybrid workflow and is ideal for scanning.
Specifically designed for use in bright, daylight conditions.
If used under incandescent lighting, an 80B filter and rating the film at ISO 12 is recommended.

This film is perfect for harsh light cinematic photos.it's currently my go to film. It's great on darker skin tones

Unnecessary

Hard to see why someone would spend the money on this film. Odd coloration and very soft and impressionable surface (leading to way more Photoshop cleanup when DSLR scanning than other negative films). If you want the vintage look, you can easily tweak the already warm tones of any Kodak Portra film.

I really like this film, I will say it does best in VERY bright light. More likely to see those pops of colors when you have full daylight, overcast or even slightly cloudy tend to make it more muted and give it a vintage feel.

I shot this type of film (both 50 and 800) side by side with Kodak portal 160 & 800. It has even better colour than portal in my opinion and very nice grain too (This is very subjective I guess). The major problem with both Cinestill 120 films I found is that they are actually only long enough for 11 shots rather than 12. The very last part of the film is very likely to be ruined by the machine developing film or clamp when drying the film. So let your lab know in advance!!! (This never happened to Kodak, Fujifilm or Ilford I used and developed by same lab or myself). When you finish the roll, on the paper outside, it does not tell the iso of film but only the name of it, remember to inform your lab of the ISO of it. Unlike other brands (Kodak, Fujifilm or Ilford ) on the paper roll outside it does not have numbers like 12 or 16, so not idea to use with Holga. Also, on the edge of film, it only shows the number 1 to 16 but without any information as what type film this is and what's the iso, therefore an extra step when you archive them. Overall don't get me wrong in term of image quality still very good, especially the colour, it just not as convenient as big brands when you use it and cost more of course.

Fantastic dynamic range, fine grain, authentic colors

This film really shines in medium format. Highlight retention is excellent even with the halation, which you'll either love or hate. For skin tones I prefer Portra 160, but you can't shoot Portra straight into the sun and expect to retain every last highlight detail. 50D creates very true-to-life colors, even if that's sometimes not desired. Reciprocity failure is nearly identical to Portra 160/400 and it works well as a fine grain night film on a tripod. There have been several improvements over previous versions of this film. The last roll I shot uses Ilford backing paper with a CineStill 50D stamp on the end, so it has frame numbers on the backing paper for use in manual roll backs or Holgas. The film itself also has CINESTILL50D markings along the edge for easy identification once sleeved. I compared the length to other recent 120 rolls from Kodak and Ilford and it's the same. The only drawback is the price. As of this writing 50D is 61% more expensive than Portra. Whether it's 61% better is up to you.

Interesting and rare
