A newly-launched Indiegogo campaign has achieved almost 50% of its funding goal in a single day – and there are 24 days left to go for CineStill 120 film.
CineStill’s 800T 35mm film has been extremely popular and is highly-regarded among its users. Right now, the choices are slim for 120 roll ISO 800 film (*that’s just Kodak Portra 800 if you didn’t click). CineStill would be adding further options with its 800T as a tungsten balanced film.
It is produced from rolls of 65mm motion picture stock but is developed using standard C-41 processing. While there have been other companies to “repackage” motion picture film (anyone remember using Seattle Film Works in the 80s and 90s?), CineStill is the only one to successfully provide a C-41 processing solution for repurposed motion picture film.
The beta tests for the new 120 film looks promising.
The early bird offers are already sold out, but you can still claim a roll of CineStill 120 film for $15, along with a CineStill sticker pack. Additional backer perks offer discounts for bulk purchases. CineStill expects to deliver the film to backers in July 2016 and it should hit retail shelves by 2017.
