Cinestill at a corn maze.


Last fall Raf and I decided to visit the Maze At The Pumpkin Patch at Sauvie Island. It was a hot, very sunny, bright day. I had a roll of Cinestill 50 itching to be used so I loaded it into my Olympus OM1n. There are very few 50 ISO days in Portland so I figured I should take advantage before the film expired.

We didn’t bring any water and we got lost in the corn maze. But we survived. Here are the photos to prove it.

How do I feel about Cinestill. Hm. This was my first try with the 50 ISO and my second try with it altogether. I guess it’s ok. I think my problem is that I am not a big fan of color 35mm. So it has taken me awhile to warm up to these shots. But looking at them months later I like them.

  1. Do you shoot any slide film? I’m curious because, i shoot a bit of 135 slide and I’m usually pretty happy with even portra color neg, but i’m really much more happy with velvia and else. can you do a comparative analysis?


        1. oh that’s nice of you! But I think I’m good for now – I’ve actually got a roll of Velvia 50 in the queue that I plan to use for pinhole over WPPD. I’ll do a comparison when I get that developed! Thanks for the kind offer! 🙂


              1. It’s highly intolerant of under-exposure and perhaps only a stop of latitude for over exposure without shift. This varies a bit with each lens and subsequent coating, but if you intend to use it in pinhole application, I’d imagine some red shift would occur, however, your negative film colors seem ‘on’ properly enough, so one can never tell. Lol
