CineStill bwXX Film

CineStuff announced a new film for Photokina 2014, the bwXX negative film. This is a repackaging of the old Eastman Double X 5222 film stock, which was used in feature films such as Schindler’s List.

Designed to be exposed at ISO 250 in daylight and 200 under tungsten, the recommended developer is Kodak D-96, though this negative stock can be processed with many black and white developers. CineStill provides the film in 36 exposure film canisters, but note that the canisters are not DX coded, so you’ll have to set ISO manually. This is a limited availability film, and currently costs US$7.49 a roll.
