Comment - Went to the Kowloon side Friday night with a friend and shot some CineStill 800T. CineStill 800T is actually Kodak Vision 3 5219 cinema film (Hollywood film industry standard) that's had the remjet layer removed so it can be processed in standard C41 chemicals. It's a tungsten balanced film that does really well at night and loves neon. I used the F80's spot meter with most of the neon shots to expose it properly and darken the rest of the image. This film stock has a very moody and cinematic feel to It and I think I'll be shooting it regularly. Probably could do with bringing a tripod next time as a lot of these shots would have come out a lot better using smaller apertures. Most were shot wide open which is a testament to just how sharp these two lenses are. Especially the Sigma 35/1.4 Art.
