Victoria Day


No fireworks here…Just some flowers, a giant orange cylinder, and a fearsome killer chicken.

This is Cinestill 800T shot at 500, with an 85A daylight filter…as you can see, in extremely bright sunlight, the color isn’t perfect, but some of them look reasonable.

    I rather like the look of this film, especially when not used with the daylight filter. I’m thinking of picking some up for use at night during our vacation later this year.

    Good to know the daylight filter works as advertised, this could be an option for bulk color film after all! Almost two films in one with and without the filter.

      Thanks Jordan,

      I’m not sure it would be my go-to film, but it was loaded in the camera (had planned to shoot indoors…) so I threw on the filter, and off we went.

      Specs say you should shoot at ISO 500 with filter on, but I’m not sure I’d do it again…probably try at 800 directly.

    This film, although not used ideally here, has a very nice feel, kind of like Fuji 400 (you know I like that one!). The thing is… perhaps Fuji might be the smarter choice for daylight while CineStill should be used when light levels get very low. There’s no point, IMO, paying good money for a film that has a similar look to a cheaper one.

    Of course those two films are very different in many ways, and there are subtle properties to each one. No doubt about that.

    BTW I think your RF is out of alignment. Look at the photo of Baby J – her ears seem sharper than her eyes.
