I find CineStill 50D has more of a "movie film" look like Kodachrome, than Portra 160.

If shot in certain lighting conditions the results of the 50D resemble Kodachrome. (See my shot above) Portra 160 has more of a "modern" look to it.

I will have to try the 800T CineStill some day, but for now 50D is my favorite colour negative film. (I still shoot 90% of my colour 35mm work as slide film which I greatly prefer)

I guess CineStill has a hard time to explain, why they want $360k just to modify existing Kodak film while Ferrania asked for $110000 less to produce new film from scratch in four different formats.

I'd just use Portra 800 and give it a blue tint in post
Ferranni are re-engineering a coating machine and coating process for films they were making a decade ago cine still were starting from scratch, apples and oranges.

I've looked at the website, but the details seem vague.

So it's an 800asa Tungsten balanced 35mm film, I got that bit.

But it keeps mentioning Xpro and C41?

is it a positive E6 (or some other process) film that they recommend to cross process in C41 chems? or is it a natural C41 negative film that may be processed in E6 if you wish?

It always throws me when film manufacturers label things as "cross process" since to me cross processing is nothing to do with the film, and all to do with what chemicals you decide to dunk it in.

Basically, say one were to use this in Tungsten light, exposed at 800asa, and then developed in C41 chemicals.
Would you get a normal balanced negative? or would you get a colour shifted, cross processed looking, positive?
You could process it in E6 but it is a masked colour negative so projecting it would be difficult...

It is ECN-2 and normally gets a different colour developer than C41, and is processed to a different gamma to contact print on negative projection or for secondary copies.

After you push the white balance button or filter for a grey card any problem may be vestigial and be in highlights and shadows. Only some people will see the problems.

Highlights will bloom more without the REMJET, c41 mini lab machines would get indigestion with REMJET.

I've shot a few rolls of Cinestill now. What sets it apart for me is the lack of the anti halation layer.

I really like using it with mixed lighting
