"Cigarettes & Coffee Porter" on 800T by Jessica Palopoli

"I went to a blind tasting at a brewery in SF (Cellarmaker) - they brewed their "coffee and cigarettes" porter with three different types of coffee beans from local coffee roasters. Tasters had to vote for their favorite." - Jessica Palopoli

Tungsten Skin Tones - Cinestill 800T By Fabio Ventura

"Cinestill has been an interesting film, allowing greater flexibility when shooting in difficult lighting situations, where Iotherwise might have reached for that 5DII now collecting dust...."

"It also allows for more experimentation using tungsten lighting, on top of that it has been for me one of the easiest color films to scan using software like silverfast and vuescan.  In this case, Silverfast and a Plustek OP 120"

Canon EOS 3 + 50mm 1/60sec f2.5, Plustek OP 120 (silver fast 8). Two video lights with the "orange" tungsten filter attached plus a table lamp with a halogen bulb.

Elegant Portrait Photography in Mixed Light on 35mm CineStill 800T by Cinzia Bruschini

"I shot these portraits with my Canon Eos-1v in my living room at 1pm. The ambient light from the windows was not sufficient so I turned on the Xmas lights behind the model and I used a video light to eliminate shadows. I shot at box speed and I am astonished with the results! The output of CineStill is awesome and and even if I am not a big fan of 35mm portraits, here it works well.

"I can't wait to take my new camera (the olympus 4ti) out on the street with this film!" - Cinzia Bruschini, Italy

Arcade Fire "Reflektor" in Capitol Studios on 800T by The Brothers Wright

Arcade Fire performed an exclusive showcase the night before the release of their forthcoming album, "Reflektor", in Studio A of the Capitol Records building. The performance was put on by KCRW and NPR Music and was documented by The Brothers Wright on CineStill 800Tungsten.

"This private show was the perfect scenario to test the limits of pushing this amazing low light color film. Though this performance was intended to be broadcast over the radio there was an excellent lighting setup. That is until frontman, Win Butler, instructed the the lighting crew, "Hey, can you turn off the lights?It's kinda' distracting. I know we are on the radio. Turn the lights way off... that one, that one that one.... alright you can go home for the afternoon..." For the remainder of the evening there was only a disco ball, the soft glow from the tube amps & synthesizers, and some reflekted back lighting. I was shooting a 15mm f/4.5 and a 50mm f/2 on my Leica M2. So I just matched the shutter speed to the focal length and prayed. Had my fingers crossed when I processed after the show. When I loaded the negatives into the Frontier, my mind was blown!" -Brian of  The Brothers Wright

And for fun, here is some Delta3200 & Portra400 shot with a Schneider Super Cinelux 70/2 mounted with movements on a Pentax 6x7. (Exposure was between 1/8 and 1/15 sec. on a monopod).

1940's Hollywood Glam and Glitz on CineStill 800T by Brian Dougher

"I was absolutely blown away with the images, and the results were even better than what I imagined they would be. This film is truly special and will always have a place in my bag."  - Brian Dougher

"I picked up some CineStill film a little while ago and I've been saving it for just the right occasion. I had been wanting to do a photo shoot with my wife for some time, and when we decided to go all-out with a 1940's style Hollywood glam style shoot, I knew that it would be the perfect opportunity to try out my new Cinestill film. I wanted to recreate the lighting and style of the period as closely as I could, so I used a fresnel tungsten hot light as my main light source, and used window light for ambient light. I knew that since Cinestill film is balanced for tungsten light, that the skin tones would look correct under the tungsten light. But what I didn't expect was just how rich and vibrant the color would be!...
I rated at 800 and incident metered on her face. All images were shot with my Nikon FE and the 50mm 1.4 AIS. I developed my film in my sink and then scanned with my Pakon F135 minilab scanner."
