REDRUM – A Limited Release Redscale version of Cinestill 800T
If you’re unsure of what redscale film is, it is when you either purposefully or accidentally shoot colour-negative film through the film base rather than the emulsion itself! Popular among those who follow Lomography, Cinestill recently through a happy accident ended up with a batch of Cinestill 800T that ended up being rolled backwards, and now are offering it up on limited release.
CineStill is excited to announce the availability of CineStill RedRum medium format red scale film. This unique film will only be available for a limited time and in limited quantities, so once it’s gone, it’s gone. RedRum is a colour negative ISO 200 film in 120 formats that have been reverse-rolled for exposing through the base of the film, rather than directly to the emulsion. This creates a monochromatic red, yellowish look with images, giving photographers a new medium and look for creating eye-catching (and spooky) images. With a name like RedRum, this film is a perfect fit for the upcoming holiday season and will be available only for a very limited time.
Produced using CineStill’s 800T emulsion, RedRum is uniquely appropriate for red-scale photography because there is no anti-halation layer to disrupt the light, resulting in higher speed (ISO 200), better sharpness, and bold colour. This film is safe for C-41 photo lab processing and has been factory spooled and packaged. CineStill RedRum is available for sale on cinestillfilm.com, through fotoimmpex.com in Europe, and shortly after at select film retailers around the world.
