Just ordered some 'Cinestill' as I love its movie film look.

Re: No more blown highlights

Very interesting. I'd forgotten how forgiving film can be (well, reversal film that is - don't try this test with transparencies!)

Quite right Paul ..... not recommended with transparencies but reversal ( oops ... I mean 'negative' film ) can be very forgiving especially the modern emulsions, in fact they often look better overexposed.

Transparencies are reversal film!

I'm seeing some superb work produced from Porta and Cinestill, I must order some myself. And of course we have Ektachrome to look forward to but that of course needs to be exposed accurately with highlights protected, not unlike digital.
PS BEOON is now married to an El-Nikkor 50 f/2.8, should be great for copying monochrome when I have a moment or two, soon hopefully.

Yes, of course. Amazing how the memory dims...

Quite right David,

I slipped up on that one too, guess one should not 'post without proofing' after just coming home from a work day that started at 7.00 a.m

That 50 Nikkor is a great lens and I'm sure it married to the BEOON will make a great copying rig.

Portra is wonderful, no actually it's "BLOODY WONDERFUL !". All three speeds are excellent ( 160, 400 & 800 ISO ) though I find 400 the most versatile of the three. Portra for colour, Tri-X for B&W ... 'sorted' as they say, though I am looking forward to shooting the Cinestill when I get it.
