You should start out by reading the technical data published for each film (BOTH films are tungsten balance). Demos are available, and you can research productions that used each film. Kodak VISION2 500T Color Negative Film 5218/7218 is Kodak's best selling color negative film, and has been used in thousands of productions. Its "look" is compatible with the other VISION2 films (7217, 7212, 7205, 7201), so you can choose the film to suit your lighting and they intercut very well.

The Kodak website has technical data for all its films:

There is also an online comparison tool:

If you are shooting 16mm, lots of good information:

And a free online Filmmakers Handbook:

And interactive tools to help choose a film, learn basic lighting, etc.:

The question is a bit like "what is the difference between a Chvey and a ford" Both are Great Hi-tech products. both are far better than the best of the best of 10 years ago.. Otherwise it is hard to give a usefull answer to such an open ended question.

Fuji Eterna 500T is a tungsten-balanced stock. Fuji Reala 500D, which is daylight-balanced, is not an Eterna stock (yet.)

Fuji Eterna 500T (8573) is similar to Kodak Vision-2 500T (5218), but slightly softer, more pastel, and lower in contrast -- almost more like Kodak Expression 500T (5229). But graininess-wise, Eterna 500T is very similar to 5218.

However, if you were really thinking of Fuji Reala 500D, it's an even softer and grainier stock.
