I have a night shoot next week which I had intended to shoot on 7218, but due to budget reasons I'm now shooting on Fuji 8673.
How similar/different are these two stocks? I was going to rate the Kodak at 320 for a less grainy neg, is this something that would help the Eterna as well?
Cheers, Chris.

Yes, rating Eterna 500T at 320 ASA helps.

It is similar to Kodak '18 except that it is a hair less contrasty and more pastel, almost closer to the look of Kodak Expression '29, so you're going to see a little more shadow detail. But for night exterior work it is probably going to look similar to '18.

Yes, a bit of overexposure will give more shadow detail, "richer" blacks and a bit less grain. IMHO, 7218 holds an edge if you need solid blacks.
