The unveiling of CineStill's new 400D film has genuinely piqued interest in the photography community. The film, offering a delicate color palette, beautifully saturated colors and warmly rich skin tones, feels like an intimate conversation between the subject and the viewer. Notably, its broad dynamic range with an ISO rating of 200 to 800 and the ability to push it to 3200, makes it an extremely adaptable companion, ready for any event or lighting situation. Moreover, the 400D's unique design for still photography and enduring anti-static lubricant coating assures seamless processing and compatibility with both manual SLRs and automatic winding cameras. This latest addition to the CineStill family feels like a trusted friend, delivering consistent and high-quality results no matter the circumstance.
CineStill 400D is a fine grain film that delivers a soft color palette with natural saturated color and rich, warm skin tones. The film has a wide dynamic range, with a base sensitivity of ISO 400 but can be rated from 200 to 800, and it can be pushed up to 3200. This makes the film highly versatile, suitable for any lighting condition, any event, and can be used either outdoors or in the studio. 400D was specifically designed for still photography, to be processed in C-41 chemistry by any photo lab or at home. In addition, it also features a process-surviving anti-static lubricant coating that will make it an ideal film for both manual SLRs and automatic winding cameras.
What We Love:
The light sources in your image will slightly glow red because of the halation in the stock. It can be used (and look stunning) in both daylight and tungsten situations.
Warm, But Cool
I particularly love that this stock is generally warm, but it is not over the top or overwhelming. Cool colors still show through and this versatility balances out a variety of scenes so nicely.
Day and Night Capability
One of the best parts of this stock is that you can use it in the daytime straight into the evening. No more finishing a daytime roll to switch to another stock! This stock can truly get you through any lighting situation or scene.
