Hey, I have shot on 7229, not on 7218, but I am about to.

And I would be very interested if anyone knows what the main differences are between these two stocks. I have checked the Kodak website, but any more practical information would be much appreciated.

Thanks

'29 is designed to be lower in contrast. As a result, it looks slightly softer and grainier than '18 (contrast being one aspect that tends to hide grain and increase sharpness.)

Thank you David. All Kodak really said about the 29 is that it's soft. But higher contrast and a sharper image is definitely what I want. So 7218 is good.
