Cinestill 120 is almost here! We have had the pleasure of shooting this new Cinestill film, and it is incredible. What Cinestill has done has brought the quality of medium format, in a high speed tungsten film.
Creating a new film stock and getting it into full scale production is no easy task, but with the help of the film community and kickstarter Cinestill 120 will soon be available worldwide!
Cinestill 120 is exciting in so many ways. Cinestill is changing the still film photo world using Vision 3 technology in an 800 ISO TUNGSTEN film which isn’t available anywhere else. As you know shooting under tungsten light can be tricky and sometimes hard to color balance. With Tungsten film, it is MADE for Tungsten light and is easier to color balance for natural looking skin tones. With Cinestill in the 120 format it will also have finer grain and smoother tonal range. Pretty awesome, right?!

Cinema films for still photogaphers:
CineStill 800Tungsten is a high speed, ISO 800 (up to ISO 3200 with push processing) color film, created for still photography in low light. It is currently available in 35mm, and due to its growing success and overwhelming demand for a medium format version, we are looking to the film community to invest in the future of film and fuel the analog renaissance!
Currently, photographers have very limited options when shooting in artificial light. CineStill 800T is the only high speed color film currently made that is compatible with incandescent/tungsten light. No other still photography film produces such natural color and fine grain when shooting in tungsten light. Not only can you expect good color in low light, 800T can even be pushed up to ISO 3200 and be trusted to produce beautiful results! This opens up a whole new world of shooting possibilities for photographers, allowing them to shoot with the cameras they love in limited available light or in the studio with continuous hot lights, similar to those used on the set of a motion picture film. The unsurpassed quality and cutting edge technology used in cinema film gives 800T amazing exposure and color latitude, allowing extreme flexibility when shooting in mixed light or even in daylight without any filtration, producing excellent color and tonality in nearly any lighting situation!
