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.

Absolute favorite film for landscapes

Rated 5 out of 5

I treat the negatives of this film like a raw file. It isn’t a finished product straight out of the scanner. It shoots nice and flat to give even exposure of highlights and shadows. Kind of like shooting video in log format, which makes sense since it’s cinema film. You can make your photos look however you want. I get rich colors, it’s super sharp, and almost no grain. It captures landscape scenes like nothing else can. This is a staple in my Pentax 67, and paired with the razor sharp 55mm 67ii lens…forget about it. My only gripe is you have to be careful of highlight hotspots because they’ll blow out without the anti-halation layer. Oh and bring a tripod! Can’t recommend this film enough.

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.
