The new Fuji stocks are even lower-contrast and more pastel than the new Kodak Vision-2 stocks.

If you're printing in 35mm, you can use Vision Premier for more saturation. If this is for video transfer, you can add more color and contrast in the color-correction.

Of course, you could go really far and shoot Ektachrome 100D 7285...

You can enhance the color saturation and contrast of the Kodak VISION2 stocks by giving them a bit of overexposure (the color-enhancing interimage effects are more active as you go up the scale and you'll get more contrast and detail in the shadows). A push-1 process (with normal exposure) will also increase the contrast. As David mentioned, for 35mm prints, you can release on KODAK VISION Premier Color Print Film 2393, which has higher contrast and the capability of very rich blacks:

so, now my prefered stocks are discontinued ( 7248 and the vision 200T) what suggested current stock would work for origination? i know the new vision2 100T is lower contrast for video prep. so any ideas for camera stock? when 7248 was avaliable i would originate on that and finish on the 2393 with excellent results. are those results no longer accessable in film finishing? thanks for your thoughts.

The contrast level of the VISION2 stocks is only slightly lower than older films, optimized for today's tastes.

But a bit of overexposure and/or push-1 process will increase contrast and color saturation.
