Fly me to the Moon

Funny, Cinestill 800T might have just become my favourite day time film for medium format. I'm convinced it is actually Kodak 500T, looks just like Vision 3 how it renders colours

    Nice, without moon! Cinestill 800T is a Vision 3 500T without Rem jet coating.

    @klawe Ah I didn't know that it's 'officially' known to be Vision 3... That makes a lot of sense, behaves exactly like old Kodak cinema stock... It still has the remjet antihalation layer on top though, I always have to remove it before developing

    @montagu ...or after developing with a spoon haha…

    The company Cinestill in the USA has a large machine that removes the Rem jet coating from the four Vision3 variants before they are assembled. Nice thing that costs extra ;-)
    The 500/800T film can be exposed well in artificial light with 800-1000 ASA without a filter.
    In daylight, 500 ASA with Wratten 85C filter is a good choice. Or anything between 250 and 500 ASA.
    ...lieber schöne, weiße Streifen auf dem Film ("Motion"-Variante ist billiger!) als schwarze Finger und einen schrottreifen Schwamm ;-)

    @klawe nice info 👍 can't hardly wait for my cinestill 135mm next month. I'm totally failed used it with holga 135bc & lomo lubitel. From what I learned, cinestill MUST shoot with slr camera at lowlight night time condition

    @hervinsyah Low light is good for the Kodak Vision 3 500T / Cinestill 800 T.
    I have a look to the Cinestill 800T 120 for TLR camera, my wife @guja will expose it in the dark... (we have a good price for the 120 format in Germany)
