Hi,
I´m consediring doing a bleach bypass on the negative for 2 scenes in a short film.
Will the contrast be more controlable and the saturation lower if i use a "softer" stock like fuji eterna 400?

In general, the slower stocks seem to show a less dramatic effect with bleach bypass. Probably to do with the amount of silver in the emulsion.

But you need to test, as two stocks with the same speed (such as a Fuji stock and an Eastman stock) won't necessarily react the same way to bleach bypassing.
