Others have brought up this stock on this site before, David Mullen gave some good opinions about it when the stock was first released, if you do a search you can find it.

From personal experience, the stock holds up quite well to my taste, although I know a lot of people still find 500T on 16mm a bit grainy. I did a series of over/underexposure tests with the stock, and still was getting good results 3 stops under. It's a warm stock to my eyes, the red's and brown's in scenes often seem more saturated to me.

This is from a pull process test I did, which I felt did a nice job tightening up the grain. (Rated the film at 250 ASA)

This is 7219 Pulled 1 Stop at Key:

Now here is the same roll Pulled 1 Stop but 3 stops underexposed:

Compressed JPGs on a forum are not a great way to analyze film stock, I wish I had a better method to upload the test footage, but you can see, even 3 stops under, the stocks holding up well considering.

Of course the best solution to your question is test test test, it's the only way to really understand how a stock performs.

Good Luck
