Im shooting a short on 7285 100D reversal.. I'd love to hear from anyone who has shot on this stock and how things turned out..

I have some scenes indoors which I plan to light using daylight from large windows as well as daylight balanced kino flos and some china balls with daylight bulbs. Im getting the daylight bulbs from the hardware store.. does anyone have any experience shooting with these types of daylight bulbs (sylvania daylight)? or if you could suggest a good daylight balanced screw in light bulb.. Unfortunately we do not have the budget or time for test shoots..

Can anyone suggest a good place in New York City that does quality E-6 processing.. I've had some bad experiences in the past processing reversal stock.. I was also planning on pushing 1 stop on some rolls.. is this something that this stock can handle or will it become too grainy.. Im looking for a surreal, nostalgic, vintage look with minimal grain.. hopefully rich blacks and super saturated primary colors.. Let me know whats up..

Looking forward to hearing everyones experiences with this.. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

7285, like most EKTACHROME films, will respond well to a push process. Expect some loss of D-Max, and some increase in graininess. For high saturation, normal exposure is best.

Not all of the new "daylight" tungsten-filament bulbs produce light near 5500K daylight. Some use bluish glass or a coating to make the light bluer, but not necessarily true "daylight"...test, Test, TEST!

The low end will go to muddy pretty quickly once you push this stock. I have had to push it two stops on occaision, and found that about 2 stops under key you really start to lose detail. If the walls are dark tones forget about it. Shooting 85 really gives you some respect for the masters of the 50's, 60's and 70's. This stock makes it's own contrast, if you embrace it it will be your friend. If you light like you are shooting 18 you will either be very dissappointed or very happy, depending on how contrasty you want your image to be.

I'm going to be shooting 85 cross-prossess push 3 next week for about 4 days on an episode of my show. I'll let you know how it goes.
