Has anyone tested shooting 5222 double X black and white negative with telecine finish vs. shooting a color neg such as 5279 and making it black and white in telecine? I would be interested to hear of any results.

I feel that xx22 has a more traditional contrastier and grainier look that xx79 used for color which seems to come out smoother and has a more creamy feel.

There's a lot you can do with color neg in telecine to manipulate it toward the characteristics of B&W films. Not only can you alter the contrast, but you can change the color channels prior to desaturation for more refinement.

B&W stocks do have a beautiful character on their own own though...
