Super 16 Stock Advice Urgent
Posted 23 February 2006 - 09:33 AM
Need a stock to cover all shooting Day Outdoors in City (Daylight), and inside a Leisure centre in Changing Rooms (Artificial light), and By the Pool (Mixed Light) all will be shot with essentially available light only
We need a single overall stock Super 16 to cover all these conditions was thinking about the Fuji/Kodak 400/500 Stocks but i'm worried image quality (Grain) although i'm not adverse to it, but this has sent me leaning towards a 200/250 stock.
Please people shower me with your wisdom i need it

Will the end product end up on video? Hi-def or standard def? I don't think 7218 is too grainy for standard def (never transferred it to HD, personally). If you're really worried about grain, and you have fast lenses and a good focus puller, you might be able to get away with a 200 or 250 speed stock.

Yeah, I would go with 7218 Kodak. It's so versatile and forgiving, the grain structure is fantastic, and it transfers well to HD.
I suggested 7299 or 7218 in answering your cross-posting. Both films have the speed to allow flexibility. If you have the light, both tolerate overexposure well, and a bit of overexposure will help reduce the graininess even more.
