Product Details

FILM SCANNING BRIGHTER THAN EVER: Introducing the CineStill CS-LITE, and 2 free bonus accessories.

An affordable, easy-to-use light source for digital camera scanning.

The CS-LITE Camera Scanning Light Source is a compact light source specifically designed to provide film photographers with higher-quality light output and improved color management when scanning their favorite 35mm and medium format films with a digital camera.

The CS-LITE features a CRI of 95+ for high color accuracy and a brightness of EV 15+ to provide sufficient illumination for even the densest of negatives. What sets the CS-LITE apart from other light sources on the market is its ability to adjust color temperatures to properly suit different types of film, such as color negative, color positive, and black and white. These are controlled directly from the built-in remote control of the CS-LITE.

CS-LITE Color Temperature: Calibrated for:
Cool Light mode Color Negative film
White Light mode Black and White film, Slide film processed in CineStill D9 DynamicChrome
Warm Light mode Slide film processed in standard E6 chemistry or CineStill D6 DaylightChrome

 

The Cool Light mode reduces the orange mask that is present in color negative film like CineStill 800T, 400D, and 50D, providing color balanced scans with better color separation and less noise.

The White Light mode is ideal for scanning black and white film, as well as slide film that has been processed with the warm-tone dilution of the CineStill D9 DynamicChrome 1st Developer.

Lastly, the Warm Light mode is perfect for scanning standard E6 (or CineStill D6 DaylightChrome) processed slide film, as the tungsten-balanced light can produce richer tones and enhanced color separation, especially within the red channel.

For a limited time, the CS-LITE will come with two special accessories: the CS-LiteMask and the CS-LiteBrite. 

The CS-LiteMask is our universal film carrier mask that pairs with pre-existing film carriers like those made by Negative Supply, VALOI, Lomography, and more. Masking around the edges of the carrier helps to eliminate spill light, reducing unwanted reflections and maintaining uniformity across the entirety of your scans. The VALOI 360 film carriers fit perfectly into the mask, creating a compact, stabilized digitizing platform.

The CS-LiteBrite is a light collimating sheet that increases directional light output, further reduces the spill light, and enhances diffusion uniformity. A single CS-LiteBrite sheet placed directly on the light source increases brightness of the CS-LITE by 60%, resulting in sharper and higher quality scans. 

The CS-LITE is an excellent light source for any photographer that scans their film with a digital camera. Its easy-to-use controller, variable color modes, and extremely bright light output help to create better quality scans with accurate colors.

1x CS-LITE Light Source 

1x CS-LiteBrite Light Collimating Sheet* 

1x CS-LiteMask Universal Carrier Mask*

*Included with any purchase of the CS-LITE, for a limited time.
