I have never shot on the Fuji stocks before and i was wandering what you guys think of the stock. I have read up on it, but i wanted to hear from people who have had practical experience on the eterna 250D.
How is the latitude, skin tones, grain noise in blacks etc?
Any information/advice will be appreciated

Day exterior T2.8 / .6ND + True Pol / 1/2 stop over exposed - with One light Print to Vision Colour Print film.
As David said, contrast was higher in the Kodak - skin tones on both stocks were true and very similar ( we were filming 3 black actresses with a range of light to dark skin) - grain structure was also very similar, I had expected to find that the fuji stock would be slightly grainer but this was not discernable. Shadow detail again seemed similar (last time I did a side to side test with fuji and kodak was about 10 years ago, '93 200T I think, Kodak had far greater shadow detail).
Both stocks looked excellent but in the end we went with Kodak for the higher contrast.
If you are going straight to a TK the contrast should not be an issue.
