Can someone give me a quick description of the differences between the two stocks.

I have 800' of each and want to know the best use for them.

I have a music video coming up that will be in the forrest and want to know which of the two would be best to use.

Thanks

For one thing, 7246 was discontinued in 2005. So it probably wasn't as fine grained and flat contrast as 7205. I never used it, but I have used 7245, its 50 D sibling. If that is any indication, I 'd say you would get a little more contrast and snap and a little more evident grain out of 46 than 05. But it may also depend how it was stored. I would do a test and see how it goes.

Still miss the 45 stock. Just beautiful vibrant colors, lots of contrast and snap.

7246 = more contrast, more color saturation, more grain, more red in the fleshtones
7205 = less of all of the above

As previously mentioned, 7246 has been discontinued for awhile. 7245 is not from the same line of stocks as 7246, 7245 is from the older EXR family. It was manufactured for maybe a year or so after Kodak stopped making 7246, which was from the original Vision line of stocks.

Interesting. Maybe not directly related, but by all intent purposes 46 did provide with the same things 45 did: more contrast, vibrant colors and grain, therefore making it similar and related in look to 45.

There is a tendency to become attached to whatever stock one is used to using. I'm as guilty of that as anybody. However, after being dragged kicking and screaming from 5245 and 5246 over to 5205 and 5201, I can honestly say I'd never want to go back.
