Cinestill 400D - new color film

Bjarke Ahlstrand

Public Service Announcement: Cinestill 400D… we get so many requests/questions about the new analog color film: Cinestillfilm 400D. Cinematographers want to know if it’s the @kodak 250 daylight film for motion picture cameras, and 35mm film shooters want to know if it looks like Kodak Portra or Kodak Gold (after all it IS a Kodak film)… 🤓 Scans are coming in now and we have shot 10 rolls ourselves, some at box speed at some pushed 2.5 stops—all professionally developed and scanned. So we have an idea of how it behaves by now 😜 It’s definitely softer than a Portra but...

Cheap and often overlooked - but great - analog cameras: the SLR

Bjarke Ahlstrand

The (cheap) alternative to plastic point and shoot cameras — plastic SLR cameras: The Single Reflex Lens camera! Canon and Nikon (and many others) produced several single lens reflex cameras with all-auto and autofocus features, far more advanced than the simpler point and shoot cameras, and with the ability to mount both cheap and quality lenses!So we decided to shoot a roll of Kodak Porta 160 and Portra 400 in a Canon EOS 50E and a Nikon F90X on a grey February 2022 Sunday. We picked a few very affordable lenses; a dirt cheap zoom (Canon 28-80mm f3.5-5.6) and some primes (Canon 50mm f1.8, Nikon...

Dust on the brain

Bjarke Ahlstrand scanner

We do a lot of high quality, high resolution scans on our Hasselblad X1 high end scanner. It undoubtably brings the best out of negatives (and postives), but the downsize is that all microscopic dust particles, scratches etc. also appear very sharp when you zoom in to 100%. Therefore Mikkel just did a small video to show how he does dust removal in Photoshop.  Dust on the brain -- dust removal on high resolution scans from bjarke ahlstrand on Vimeo.   The negative was shot on a Hasselblad Xpan with 45mm f4 on expired (1994!) Kodak Technical Pan film, rated...
