CineStill 50 Daylight Fine Grain Color Film 120 Medium Format is boasted to be the world’s finest grain film! CineStill 50D is an ISO 50/18° speed daylight balanced (5500K) motion picture emulsion. Technology borrowed from from Hollywood’s wunderkind, Kodak 50D, prepped and rolled for safe C-41 standard development as an ISO 50 film.
The new and improved proprietary “Premoval” process makes motion picture film safe to process in standard C-41 photo lab chemicals or at home. This emulsion is optimized for a hybrid workflow, ideal for scanning, and when processed in C-41 chemistry it can be optically printed on RA-4 paper. Treat this film as a 50 ISO film when processing in C-41 and push process whenever needed.
- 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
Expiration: The new and improved production of CineStill film now has an extended shelf life, and has been tested for longevity up to 1.5 years without base fogging. Unexposed film should be stored in the fridge and shot within 6 months of purchase to achieve optimal results. Exposed film should be processed promptly in C-41 chemicals to preserve latent image latitude and color fidelity. All current productions of CineStill will have expiration dates for 18 months from manufacture date on the packaging. If you have Alpha production film (no retail box), it should be used before 2018.
Note: This emulsion was designed to be processed in ECN-2 Chemicals and may still be processed in it’s native chemistry, resulting in a pulled negative with lower gamma. Test results show consistent in standard C-41 machine processing when compared with ECN-2 motion picture lab processing performed by professional labs. Long term archival stability has not been tested past 5 years. Expectations for archival longevity should be somewhere between Kodachrome and most C-41 films but there are no guarantees.
