Hey John and Dominic,

First, I hope your ticker is doing okay, John. I just had a TEE to catch a murmur. Damn it, I'm getting old!

I read the link you posted in another post, John, about the T grain tech of Vision2 films. I got the impression that it used a different chemical system in processing. Is that the case? Can an old ECNII machine develop Vision2?

Thanks,
Paul

Yes, Kodak's been designing films for ECN-2 for over 30 years now. I doubt they are ever going to change it to another process. Just as with C-22 to C-41 in still photography, ECN-2 primarily was concerned with speeding up processing times, increasing temperatures to do so. There was, if I recall correctly, also something they did in ECN-2 that reduced rem-jet flakes that would reattach themselves and be visible as large specks on the negative.

Regards,

Yes, all of Kodak's motion picture color negative films introduced since the mid 1970's (5247 was the first film designed for the ECN-2 process) are designed for the ECN-2 Process.

(My heart is doing very well. But I am having surgery for the Appendix Cancer next week. I hope the surgery is successful and able to remove all/most of the cancer. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.)
