Fuji 64D and Eterna 250D
Posted 05 June 2007 - 10:26 PM
The film takes place for the most part outdoors but there are some interiors with lots of windows. Because of this I planned on sticking with the 64D throughout the shoot. I may have to push the film one or two stocks in one location and was wondering if anyone knew how this film handles being pushed. Also do you guys think Eterna 250D should be used instead of pushing F-64D?
Final question I actually found the 64D to have more latitude than the Eterna 250D. Has anyone else experienced this or was this a fluke. Thanks

You could try the new Vivid 160T instead if you want a more contrasty and saturated stock for your indoor scenes. Or overexpose 250D and print down.
If this is for video transfer, you can make Eterna 250D look as saturated and contrasty as F-64D in the telecine.

generally a stock can't be both punchier, more snappy, and yet have more exposure range.
Just wanted to say, that it is possible (though probably not the case in reality), because contrast is not really a linear function, specially not with film, the "punchyness" mostly comes from midtone contrast. It is possible that a film has a steeper straight section of the curve (a punchy film), yet , through a large toe and shoulder have big dynamic range.
The best example is a comparison between a typical video camera and film. The film mostly looks more punchy, more dynamic, while a video will look a bit flat, but film will have more dynamic range. It's because film has more mid-tone contrast and at the same time has huge highlight and shadow compression.
