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.

Honestly my favorite color film in 35mm. I love how the colors look and the cinematic feel you get. Yet, the price of the film is what always has made me go for using other film stocks if you got the $ defiantly shoot with it.

Too expensive for mediocre results

Since this is a specialty film it makes sense that this film is expensive, but in my opinion this film is not worth the price for the final product. This film has an unflattering green tint that is moderately annoying to remove in post. The film cannot handle any underexposure without creating a muddy green tint to the entire image, so meter for the shadows or overexpose the film by one stop for usable results. If you want a low speed ISO film, just expose Portra 160 at 80 ISO since it will produce a much more pleasing result compared to CineStill 50D.
