Kodak EXR 100T
Posted 10 December 2007 - 04:26 PM
As you may or may not know I have four rolls of Kodak EXR 100T (7248). what I'd like to know is the opinions of people with expirience of this stock. How good is the colour/contrast? How grainy is it? What the exposure latitude? Will it react well to being underexposed a stop or so? Any any other info I may need to know, as I am going to fully meter and even light professionally the shots this film will be used for.

of course you can under expose 1 stop and even more, it's a negative film... just shoot and have fun, and if you make some mistakes so good for you! it mean that you are learning something not just doing something.

I noticed I haven't covered sometihng I wanted to discuss. What level of underexposure would you reckon is the level where this stock will begin to look underexposed? And not just richer. Or is this variable depending upon the ambience of the scene?
P.S: I am sorry to all moderators for this 'three-in-a-row'. Please don't delete my post, I'll try not to let it happen again.

What's confusing is that when shooting under colored lighting, you want to underexpose the light to retain the saturation of the light. So someone standing under a red light, for example, may be a stop or two below key (normal) exposure.
Slightly underexposing reversal stock, however, does give you more saturation and deeper blacks. But EXR 100T is a negative stock.

Thanks for your tip, David. I though underexposure generally produced richer hues, it's a shame I've already underexposed six previous negative rolls. I also have 50ft of EXR 50D in 16mm, I'll see if I can give that a whirl.
Happy Ney Year!
