Cinestill 50D which is a daylight color balanced color negative motion picture film. The remjet backing has been removed making easily developed as c-41 and gives a unique halation effect. It’s an incredibly fine grained film with unrivaled exposure latitude which is why we recommend erring on overexposure when shooting this film.

There are some color corrections you will need to do, the film does produce more of a green tint. I shoot with a Hasselblad 500cm, and will probably use a daylight color correction filter next time to see if that lessens the green tint. A little color correction and it’s fine. I very much enjoyed the results this film produced. Make sure you have PLENTY of light. 50 speed film can be challenging if you shoot later in the afternoon. I meter typically for the shadows to retain that detail, which produced very good results for me.

Too green for me.

Had to color correct everything for this film. Every single frame had a green tint to it. Fixable but nothing great out of the box. Go with Portra 160 or Ektar.

Actually, the lowest ISO film available. Very low grain, low contrast and nice colours (maybe a bit greenish). Very different if you are used to the Portra family.
