CineStill has launched new powdered versions of its color and black-and-white film development kits. The new “just add water” kits help photographers save both money and space.
Compared to the liquid bottles, which are transported in heavier boxes and which fall under government restrictions — color chemistry is generally classified as “Limited Quantity Hazardous” and can only be shipped ground — CiniStill’s new powder kits lay flat and can be shipped via air in First Class and Priority mail envelopes.
And in addition to saving some money on the powder kits themselves ($1 off the $26 Cs41 kit and $3 off the $20 DF96 kit), customers will save up to 75% on shipping costs due to the smaller and lighter powder packs.
Once water is added, both powder kits produce chemistry with the same technical specifications as the ready-mixed versions.
