Please weigh in if so. I am looking at trying the 160vivid and 500 eterna just wondering what other people experience with these stocks have been. Thanks

Yes I used the 160 Vivid last year on my film The Ferryman - love the unusually saturated colours, shot 7 carts no problems with a Canon 814 XLS.

I have a few rolls of the Pro 8 160 Negative I've yet to shoot, but here is one from the 500T Eterna:

Thanks, Mr Perkins. Now I know what to expect from the 160. What filtration if any did you use other than the 85?

I locked the internal filter out and used an 85b on the front.

Mr. Ross:

Many thanks for the compliments. It has been a lot more satisfying "revisiting" Super 8 since my early teens. The selection of stocks today and the options afforded to us in post has elevated Super 8 to a level I never thought possible.

Having this forum as a resource has been monumental in the gathering of information, ideas, and advice.
Thanks again,
Art
