New Product Alert – NINM Labs 400-Speed C-41
NINM Labs, out of Hong Kong, is pleased to announce a 400-Speed Colour Negative Film or Business Use Film release. Originally designed for their third-generation I’M Fine Single-use camera, but now available as a separate product for use in any 35mm camera. NINM describes the film stock as warm-toned and high-contrast and is great for shooting outdoors in sunlight and at night and indoor low-light applications.
The packaging takes on the same colour scheme as their I’M Fine cameras, with blue, red, and white primary colours. The film itself comes in 24-Exposure DX-Coded cartridges. The film produces warm images in both daylight and indoor lighting that are both sharp and fine-grained. According to NINM, the film itself is manufactured in the United States and is available for sale through their online shop at ninmlab.com. The price is set at 68 HKD or $8.76 (USD) and 10.54$ (CAD), and they do ship to North America (Canada and the United States). The low cost and ease of development at any photo lab make this film an excellent option for beginner film photographers.
If you are not familiar with NINM Labs, they are an International Group of photographers, designers, engineers, and marketing consultants. They are passionate about photography, music, coffee, and history. They launched their first product last year through Kickstarter resulting in the Instant Magny 35 camera that gained support from 800 people worldwide. Their second product, the I’M Fine Single Use camera, also proved a success. They are based out of Hong Kong. Currently, we at Studio C-41 are unsure if this is a rebrand of an existing film stock or a return to manufacturing previously dead stock or warehouse find.
