BBP is for brave SILBERSALZ35 users only. It provides a even more cinematic and unique look.
For BBP processing we skip the bleach bath for processing. Why? Skipping the bleach bath gives you a lot more contrast and way less saturation, especially in the reds and blues.
Some notable cinematographers that have used Bleach bypass are Darius Khondji, Dariusz Wolski, Walter Carvalho, Oliver Stapleton, Newton Thomas Sigel, and Janusz Kamiński (notably on Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan and Minority Report).
When using BBP, we recommend underexposing by -1 stops.
It’s easy. For no more than 50 bucks you can get a beautiful analog camera.
For beginners, we recommend the Canon AE-1.
We do not support cameras reliant to DX-code yet. Please make sure you can manually change your camera’s ISO.

We worked hard on adapting the whole process of analog motion picture productions for your photos.
The CINESTILL proprietary “Premoval” process makes motion picture film safe to process in standard C-41 photo chemicals. Our tests show that C-41 processing results in degraded color and contrast rendition.
SILBERSALZ35 are the actual, unchanged motion picture stocks used for films like ‘Dunkirk’,’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ or ‘Wonder Woman’, with true cinefilm chemical processing (ECN2). For scanning we are also using state-of-the-art cine equipment. For digital post processing we only use our own unique color science.
This is our little secret. Don’t ask again!
