This “Pushed CineStill 800T” Film Simulation Recipe came about after I stumbled across an amazing picture that was captured on CineStill 800T film during daytime with an overcast sky. It turned out that the film was push-processed, but I never learned by how many stops (I’m guessing one-stop). After some extensive Googling, I was able to find several more examples of push-processed CineStill 800T film shot in overcast daytime light. I then set out to mimic that aesthetic on my Fujifilm camera.
Interestingly enough, even though this recipe is intended for daytime photography, it does quite well at night, too; however, I do believe it more faithfully mimics the film in cloudy daytime conditions. It does produce nice results in daylight or night, so feel free to use it anytime. Film can look different depending on how it is shot, developed, or scanned (among many other things). This recipe doesn’t replicate pushed CineStill 800T film under all circumstances, but in certain conditions it’s a good facsimile. I really like how this one looks, and I think some of you will really appreciate it, too!
Because this “Pushed CineStill 800T” recipe uses the Eterna Bleach Bypass film simulation, it is only compatible with the Fujifilm X-T4, X-S10, X-E4, and X-T30 II cameras. It’s possible that this recipe is also compatible with the GFX100S and GFX 50S II, but I’ve never tested it to be certain. This was a Fuji X Weekly App Patron Early-Access Recipe, so App Patrons have had access to it since October, but now it’s available to everyone! A new Early-Access Recipe replaced it find—it in the Fuji X Weekly App!

Loved it, thanks Ritchie! I will give it a try. Any chance that you’ll revisit the Classic Negative stock recipe, same way as you did with some other stock film simulations? Thanks!
I plan to! I got a little distracted with my move and road trip, but I plan to finish that series. I appreciate the input!
Yay, great news! Thanks Ritchie
Having used pushed CineStill 800T, it’s an awful film stock to push, and short of the grain this is pretty close. The teal tint is just… awful. I don’t think anything looks good with it, but to those who do, this is as close as you’re gonna get with SOOC.
I appreciate the input! Definitely not a recipe for everyone, for sure! 🙂
