ANALOGUE: Cinestill 800T

MONDAY JANUARY 14, 2019

What’s not to like when it comes to breaking the rule of thirds and cinematic colour tones. Moreover Lala Land, recent Star Wars and  Bond movies were  shot  on  a Cinestill 800T related film which really drew my attention. A layer that aids overexposure have been removed from Kodak's Vision 3 so it can be developed with C41 chemicals. Therefore, halation shows when shooting lights.

Unique colour rendition and high saturation are the many reasons to shoot 800T alongside its low light prowess. Shadows and highlight retain a healthy amount of detail while skin tones are delivered in a natural manner. Although shooting film at night is no easy feat, Cinestill 800’s a film stock that encourages so.
