Hi everyone, which available 500 ASA stock is the most contrasty? 5279?

I find 5218 and 5229 to be too forgiving, I want a stock with less latitude, more contrast, deeper shadows.

Never tried Fuji...

Thanks a lot!

I'll third that.

I did some tests on Tuesday that I will try and post here of:
5218 w/ full skip bleach to the negative
5229 w/ full skip bleach to the negative
5279 w/ full skip bleach to the negative

5218 Normal
5229 Normal
5279 Normal

And all six of these scenarios with both Panavision Primo lenses and Panavision full "Flare" lenses.

Would love to see those tests Kevin! I have a growing issue with Vision 2 stocks. Too much latitude, no personality. Is there a way to make 5218 more contrasty, I never tried pushing it. I always overexpose a bit and it really doesn't do it for me.

Thanks,

C

I'll try and get those posted. I have pushed '18 before one stop; it gets a bit more contrasty and grainy, but really not much. That can be great if you need the speed, but not so grate for getting a very contrasty look.
