When I shot CineStill 50D, I stuck with the 50 ISO, and I shot it within various settings such as a cloudy day, inside during afternoon, and full sun outside.
Personally, I think it did the absolute best when used in full sun, it’s really where all its beautiful colors were able to shine.
Because of its low ISO is can get tricky using this film inside or outside on a cloudy day. As I experimented, I ended up with a whole lotta blurry images on some of the darker days even if I was outside.
If you’re using this film and it’s in lower light conditions, consider pushing this film to 200 ISO.
Because of the low ISO even when shooting in broad daylight it was tricky to photograph my children who tend to get all wiggly when in front of the camera.
The images that I took of them tend to come out a little less in focus than I’d like, so this film would work perfectly with subjects or scenery where there isn’t a ton of movement.
Pros & Cons
There are quite a few pros to this amazing film, one of them being that CineStill 50D comes in both 35mm and 120!
You get both the option of shooting 35 and medium format, which, for me, makes this film stock even more versatile.
Another huge pro is this film can be shot at 100 ISO without the need for pushing from your lab.
This is awesome because it limits your risk of getting blurry images during lower light situations without having to change the look of the film or pay the extra lab fee for pushing.
