Product Details

A modern classic — now with DX codes!


CINESTILL BwXX 35mm is a classic panchromatic black and white negative film for both outdoor and studio use. It has a variable base sensitivity of ISO 250 under daylight (5500K) and ISO 200 under tungsten lighting (3200K), and can be rated up to ISO 1600 with the appropriate processing compensation. 

Ideal for low light situations, this film delivers rich blacks and high contrast images, while also providing very high sharpness, a broad tonal range, and a fine grain structure. It is an excellent choice for those looking for a classic film stock to fill the void left by the discontinuation of it's wonderful sister films, Kodak Plus-X (discontinued in 2010) and TXP320. This film stock is left relatively unchanged since its release in 1959 for still and motion picture use.

Some of the iconic movies filmed on the classic Eastman Double-X film stock 5222 / 7222 include:

Oppenheimer (2023), The Lighthouse (2019), Raging Bull (1980), Schindler's List (1993), Stranger Than Paradise (1984), Malcolm & Marie (2021), Memento (2000), Kafka (1991), Casino Royale (2006), I'm Not There (2007), Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003), Manhattan (1979), Cinderella Man (2005), Aferim! (2015), Frantz (2016), American Horror Story (2011-2017) and many many more.


Recommended development: CineStill D96 developer or Df96 Monobath, but is compatible with D-76, HC110 and all other black and white film developers. For all developing times, see the CineStill BwXX Development Times Chart.


Storage and handling: Load and unload film in subdued light. Store unexposed film in a refrigerator at 13°C (55°F) or lower in the original sealed package. To avoid moisture condensation on film that has been refrigerated, allow the film to warm up to room temperature before opening the package. Process film as soon as possible after exposure. Protect processed film from strong light, and store it in a cool, dry place.
