I am shooting a product/tabletop job later this week on Fugi F-250D and need
exposure and lighting (contast) advice from those of you experienced with this
emulsion. Using this film is a mandate as the live action portion of the spot is being filmed with it. My main film choice in Kodak 5279 which is fairly gutsy 500T film which
I usually rate at 320 to 400 to provide for a meaty neg with solid contast and good blacks.
Is the F-250 a film with greater latitude in the shadows requiring more contrast in
lighting.
If anyone has experience with this emulsion your impressions would be greatly appreciated.

The old F-250D would be similar in contrast to '79, but if you're using the new F-250D Eterna, the contrast is slightly lower than Kodak's 05 and 18 stock since it matches 500T Eterna in terms of contrast. But this is within a range that a telecine color-correction can adjust for if you want more contrast.

I wouldn't go overboard in lighting with too much contrast.

Thanks David, that sounds like reasonable advice. I'll leave the fine tuning to the
colorist and make sure all the info is on the neg
