KODAK VISION3 250D Color Negative Film is now repacked for still photography! So far, the best price/quality ratio money can get in the world of colour film photography. Our lab’s choice for taking colour photos with any 35mm camera. This film provides excellent dynamic range without adjustments in development, and neutral colour reproductions that are keen to the eye—those are similar to Kodak Gold 200 without those excessive yellows. Most of all, you can expect a relatively fine grain for an ISO 250 film. And don’t forget – that’s the same film stock that is used in making Hollywood productions on film (for instance, works of Quentin Tarantino or Christopher Nolan). This is the same film base as CineStill 400D.
All films are DX-coded for ISO 400 and 36 exposures (this small underexposure will do no harm to your photos!). These will work with most of the cameras with automatic film advance, although we cannot guarantee correct operation in such cameras. You can also always adjust the ISO manually on some cameras, but remember to write the ISO setting of exposure on the canister when you drop it off for development! We recommend exposing this film at an ISO of 200 or 400, and with a large range in latitude, either will give you wonderful results!
VISION3 250D Film has outstanding skin tones and colour reproduction while adding technical innovations that improve product performance and increase product versatility. The proprietary, advanced Dye Layering Technology (DLT) provides noticeably reduced grain in shadows, allowing you to pull out an amazing amount of shadow detail. The proprietary Sub-Micron Technology enables 2 stops of extended highlight latitude, so you can follow the action into bright light in a single shot—without worrying about blown-out details.
This film was loaded from master reels onto individual rolls. The film has a protective remjet layer that must be removed prior to processing in C-41 chemistry; we offer ECN-2 processing (native for this stock) with the remjet removal. Allow a tolerance of +/- 2 frames per roll due to manual loading.
PLEASE NOTE: This film cannot be processed in a traditional C-41 lab and must be brought to a lab that offers ECN-2/C-41 with remjet removal development. DUPA offers this lab service, and details can be found under the Darkroom Lab section on the website.
Bear in mind that this is an experimental product and is subject to any sort of imperfections (i.e. scratching); hence, no guarantee can be given regarding the quality of the roll. We do our best to keep the reloading process as safe as possible for film, but there is always room for imperfections. The film has been packed into recycled canisters. Please do not remove the sticker(s) completely to avoid misunderstandings at the lab of your choosing; film will work with most of cameras with automatic film advance, although we cannot guarantee correct operation in such cameras.
