Photokina is in full swing and CineStill has found it's way back to Cologne, Germany once again! If you happen to be in Cologne as well, the Brothers and the rest of the CineStill team would love to meet you. Come by stand A041 in Hall 3.1 to say hi!
Over the past two years since our last Photokina trip, CineStill has gone from announcing our first attempt at crowdfunding CineStill 120, to running a wildly successful crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo, and just last week we completed our first run of a brand new high speed tungsten balanced color film for medium and large format photography! In a recent update to their IndieGoGo backers, the Brothers Wright shared with their “CineStill Filmmakers” their progress setting up manufacturing, success in producing our first production run and the anticipated timeline for delivery. If you have yet to support the campaign and would like to be among the first to get your hands on some medium or large format CineStill 800T, you can still make a contribution by preordering through our BackerKit today! Otherwise, you can expect to find CineStill 120 and 4x5 on shelves by early 2017.
Also coming in 2017, CineStill is releasing a new simplified color negative film processing chemistry kit, “CineStill Cs41.” Cs41 is a simplified kit for processing your color negative film at home. This new liquid chemical, two bath processing kit can be used at a variety of temperatures with the same equipment you already use to process your black and white film at home. No darkroom or automated processor required! If you already process your own black and white film at home, with this kit, you can now process your color film too!
