Looking for CineStill 400D film?
Reflx Lab 400 Daylight or 400D is the identical film. Due to the global shortage of color C41 films, more and more companies are taking bulk motion picture films that come with a remjet layer (see this article for what remjet is) and removing that layer and packaging them in 35mm film canisters. Reflx Lab takes it a notch up...read on how.
Reflx Lab is located in Shenzen, China, and is actively managed by two co-founders, Yongxiang (Marketing & Sales) and Shu (Tech Guru). They established the Reflx brand based on the word "Reflective" with a primary goal of providing budget products to film photography lovers around the globe.
But, for the two co-founders, a budget product doesn't translate to cheap or cutting corners. For example, each 400D film comes in a brand-new metal canister that you can reuse.
Starting with films in color (C41) 400 and 800 ISO, they are slowly expanding their offerings. They also have a 400 ISO black and white film.
The 400D ISO color film is based on Kodak Vision 5207 (250D) fresh film stock (not expired):
- Rem-Jet layer removed
- The daylight-balanced film, ideally for outdoor shooting during the day
- More neutral than the 800T, with vintage and nostalgic tones
- Film Format: 35mm color negative
- ISO: 400 (DX coded)
- Process: C-41
- Best before Dec 2023
- Brand-new metal canister and costs less than other 400D films
- The storage can is made of aluminum, which can be reused or recycled.
