And honestly, it blows Ektachrome 64 out of the water for what I would like to use film for.
I will be doing 99% of my work on colour negative from this point onwards!
The first 15 feet was shot on 500 ASA film. Inside a dark pub with a non-XL camera and some shots on a gritty tube station. The grain was average, but the results were good, considering the light that was available. The few seconds I shot in daylight with this film is almost indistinguisable from 200 ASA.
The next 15 feet was shot with 200 film in daylight with a +2 Neutral Density filter. The grain of this one is so subtle, you have to squint your eyes to see it.
The colours are very lifelike. Perhaps not as saturated as reversal, but the blacks are solid, and the whole thing oozes quality. And it's only a one-light print!
From shoot to projection, the cost is about double that of reversal.
I wonder what kind of stock they used for this?
As far as I know there are no super 8mm print films available from Kodak. Perhaps they use cut down 16 or 35mm stock?
The film is definitely polyester based. Very difficult to cut and film cement has NO effect on it. Better get myself a tape splicer...
Either way, a most recommended excercise!
