50D (5201/7201)
or
250D (5205/7205)

I'm wondering if anyone knows the significant differences between these two variaties of daylight stock are:
(whether, in general, film speed will determine any of the following)

i.e. Contrast, Grain, Latitude, Color sat, etc...

Thanks in advance

Mainly just that 50D '01 is finer-grained than 250D '05. Otherwise, they match pretty well.

Very similar in "look", except the Kodak VISION2 50D Color Negative Film 5201/7201 has less graininess than any other motion-picture film on the market. By design, all the normal contrast VISION2 films are intended to have similar tone scale and color reproduction.

John, you really just need to get a Mac 23" monitor, then you'll be fine. : )

cvander: My practical experience with the two stocks is that 250D has a little more grain just as you'd expect. Vision2 50D is just amazing on a nice day, I mean it almost looks "too good." As a hobbyist, I sometimes prefer the look of a reversal film like the 100D or Kodachrome so when people see it on DVD they know its film. I always have both V2 50D and V250D on hand and use the 250D on a slightly cloudy day.
