New Colour Film from CineStill – Introducing 400D
CineStill 400Dynamic is a new ISO 400 daylight-balanced colour negative film that is being made available to photographers for the first time ever. 400D will initially be made available in both 35mm and 120! CineStill is announcing the introduction of 400Dynamic, an ISO-400 daylight-balanced colour film available to photographers for the first time. 400D will initially be made available in both 35mm and 120 medium format in limited supply —with plans for large scale production and 4×5 large format through the success of the CINESTILL FILMMAKER Crowdfunding Campaign. The analogue photography market is in a renaissance, thriving and growing in recent years. With this renewed interest in all things analogue, CineStill is determined to bring innovation and accessibility to a community that demands it. The film community is invited into the process of creating this new film by becoming a CINESTILL FILMMAKER.
CineStill 400D is a fine grain film that delivers a soft colour palette with natural saturated colour 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 event, and can be used outdoors or in the studio. 400Dynamic is the culmination of CineStill working exclusively with our manufacturing partners worldwide to utilize the same advanced emulsion technology found in Motion Picture film. 400D was explicitly 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. This new film will continue CineStill’s ongoing tradition of motion picture film emulsions made for still photographers to maximize their creativity and produce remarkable images that express who they are as a photographer.
CineStill continues with the precedent set by the successful crowdfunding campaign that led to our flagship film CineStill 800T being made available in medium format. CineStill is inviting the film community to be part of the process of making 400D available to photographers around the world by becoming a CINESTILL FILMMAKER. There’s been a significant gap in the market for an ISO 400 speed colour film during the last few years. Past discontinuations and supply chain issues have caused a limited availability in the industry, leaving photographers without the options they would typically have. We are launching a crowdfunding campaign today that seeks to gauge the interest of a new ISO 400 speed colour film in the market and inform our manufacturing plans, so we can continue to meet the demand of the analogue community for years to come. The more participation we see in the FILMMAKER CrowdfundingCampaign, the more we will know how to invest our efforts to serve the community strategically. By becoming a CINESTILL FILMMAKER, backers will be pre-ordering this new film, with the ability to receive additional rewards and discounts. Plus, be among the first to receive film from the first batch of 400D in both 35mm and 120 that will be shipped immediately after the campaign’s culmination.
