Unrivaled highlight and shadow latitude
High resolution and fine grain for maximum sharpness
CineStill 50Daylight is a color negative motion picture film stock that has been prepped and rolled for standard photo lab processing or Cs41 development at home. It has an ISO of 50/18° speed, is daylight balanced (5500K), and is based on the original Vision3 50D emulsion. The film is ideal for shooting in bright light at wide apertures, producing high-resolution, low-grain images. The exposure latitude of this film is beyond what most digital cameras and films can achieve, and it can be rated anywhere between ISO 12-100 without the need for push processing. The manufacturing process has been improved to extend the shelf life of the film, with less noticeable artifacts after expiration. The film is optimized for a hybrid workflow, ideal for scanning, and produces a complimentary contrast curve for optical printing on RA-4 paper when processed in C-41 chemistry. The film should be stored in the fridge and shot within 6 months of purchase to achieve optimal results, and exposed film should be processed promptly in C-41 chemistry to preserve latent image latitude and color fidelity. The film can be processed using ECN-2 motion picture processing or with the CineStill Cs2 "Cine Simplified" kit, resulting in a pulled contrast negative with lower gamma not suitable for darkroom printing. However, C-41 processing produces greater density and gamma, which is more favorable for still photography workflows. The long-term archival stability of the film has not been tested past 9 years, and expectations for archival longevity should be somewhere between Kodachrome and most C-41 films. The film should be loaded and unloaded in subdued light, stored in a refrigerator at 13°C (55°F) or lower in the original sealed package, and processed as soon as possible after exposure. Processed film should be protected from strong light and stored in a cool, dry place.
