Vision 3 in super 8
Posted 29 November 2007 - 09:15 PM
Anyway, the Kodak rep said 16 and 35 are coming out now, 65 and super 8 on the way!!! I didn't stick around for the Q&A to ask about a release date for super 8 but from what she said it is definitely in the cards.
We should lobby so they don't renege.

I went to a Kodak product launch tonight for Vision 3 500T. Anyway, the Kodak rep said 16 and 35 are coming out now, 65 and super 8 on the way!!!
YEEAAESSS! Excellent news, Rick, thanks for posting this! This might mean that the 7217 will no longer be the first choice without thinking, but that lesser grain makes the ISO 500 stock interesting to use. 7217 plus new 7219, and Plus-X and Tri-X... what a great quartett! If someone would allow 7201 to join in, a complete quintett would allow Bach-like sophisticated "chamber music" (to use the analogy) to be filmed on Super 8.
Any further comments on Vision3, or, if that was just a plain boring part ( ), about the state of canapés, finger food and sparkling wine served at the event?
Now, where did I put that Super Panavision 65 in my storage...?!?! (a joke!, a joke!)

They had samples of the stock pushed up to two stops, and the grain was still very acceptable. I can forsee shooting in low-light AND with a decent f-stop.

It's great to have Kodak reps actually talk very inclusive about S8 as a format. So much for the fear that it isn't taken serious at Rochester. John Pytlack was always adamant that this wasn't the case, and I think he proved all the doomsday "yellow-giant-hates-Super-8" sceptics wrong in the end.
