I'm currently in pre-production for a student film and we are looking at a lot of different stocks... I'm especially interested in the Kodak 7217 (or in 35mm, 5217) and the Fuji 8653 (35mm 8553)--has anyone here shot with these stocks? I would love to know about any differences between these stocks in terms of color, grain, contrast or whatever else you may have noticed. Thanks!

5217 is slightly sharper and finer-grained than Eterna 250T, but the Eterna is lower in contrast, if that matters to you. I suspect that the Eterna 250T would look a little softer and "creamier", more pastel. In 16mm work, you may prefer the crisper look of Kodak 200T though. In 35mm where softness is less of an issue, it just depends on the look you want.

I haven't shot the Eterna 250T myself, just the Eterna 250D and 500T.
