CineStill 800Tungsten is a unique film for still photographers. This 800 speed tungsten balanced color negative film is prepared from the same motion picture film stock used by top cinematographers around the world. This film is designed for difficult low light tungsten situations and may be used in many different lighting situations to achieve a variety of looks.

Recommended ISO and acceptable exposure for push processing:

ISO 800 – No push – EI 200-1600
ISO 1250 – 1 stop push – EI 800-2000
ISO 1600 – 2 stop push – EI 1250-3200
ISO 3200 – 3 stop push – EI 1600-3200 (added contrast)

Features

  • Color Balanced Tungsten color negative motion picture film stock for use as still photography film
  • Factory boxed and spooled into NEW high quality Dx-Coded Cartridges
  • Remjet backing free, resulting in a unique halation effect
  • Designed for difficult low light tungsten situations
  • When shot in daylight, an 85 filter is recommended and/or shooting the film at 500 ISO
  • Acceptable for push processing up to 3200 ISO
  • Recommended to process C-41 without worrying about remjet

Expiration: The new boxed CineStill film has a 2 year shelf life, and 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 have expiration dates for two years from manufacture date on the box. If you have earlier productions of 800T (no retail box) or your film does not have an expiration date, it is likely age fogged.

If you’re looking for that movie look of the 80’s this is the film for you. Fluorescent’s have a green hue, colors pop and many lights will give off a halation. Not for everyone but I love it street shooting at night.
