Hi all,
Can someone explain what is VFX capabilities as stated in the Kodak Motion Picture Film catalogue?
Kodak 7201 carries ASA 50 for daylight. Does the result be the same if I were to use 5212 (100T) filtered by Wratten 85 to shoot the same scene with the same source of light? thanks.

If you are shooting in daylight, 7201 would have finer grain than 7212. I recall that 7212 would be slightly sharper than 7201. 7212 with a Wratten 85 would be rated EI 64 in daylight.

TQ John P Pytlak.

1. Do you think this difference is very visible as the ASA difference between 64 and 50 is 'negligible'?
2. May be you missed my 1st question and I am lucky to get you from Kodak. Please explain what is "VFX capabilities" as printed in your Vision2 Motion Picture Film pamphlet.

In daylight, I would favor using the 7201, as it has the finest granularity of any motion picture negative film on the market. The "VFX capabilities" simply means the films work well with green screen and blue screen.
