They guys over at CineStill have released CineStill bwXX (double-x) in a limited run of 2000 rolls. They are available as of last week so you’d better get over there before it’s gone. The film is a high speed, classic black & white film emulsion, with an EI of 250 under daylight and 200 under tungsten lighting. It can also be pushed up to 1600 with some developers.
Originally created by Eastman Kodak in 1959. This film has been a photographic constant since it’s release. Kodak has however has removed this film from it’s still stocks, but is available to cinematographers, until now. If this film is as much fun to shoot as the 800T I’m going to be hooked. It’s classic look is just begging to be ran through a Leica.
Here are some sample images from the insanely talented talented Cliff Gagliardo.
