Hi,
I am shooting ALL exterior project in the palmdale desert, various looks and times of day, one of the stocks im looking at is the Fuji Eterna 160 vivid, mainly because I might be able to get a good deal on some, has anyone used it, do you have images online and what did you think?
Cheers.

HI Tomas,

16mm or 35mm? I think the Vivid is too grainy in 16mm, but others may have different opinions.

I've shot it in 16mm which can be seen online here.

A search on youtube shows it was also used on this music video.

Fuji UK's website lists a number of productions and the filmstock used, Vivid 160T appears on the list a couple of times.

Recently tried it.. too grainy for me (even rated for a 2/3s overexposure).

I much prefer 7217 or 7212!.... or 7285.

Ive used it a lot. S16 and Super35mm. Normal, pushed a stop and bleached bypassed. I Love it.

Fuji stocks have CHARACTER!!!!

It can definitely be a shock switching to Fuji if one is used to Kodak Vision stocks.

The upside is that the footage comes out looking like Kodak film used to, whereas most Vision stocks are so grain free, they sort of look like softer video, IMO.

Ultimately it is all user preference and project compatibility

I really enjoyed using it for a short we did about a year ago. Colors really popped, especially in contrast to Kodak stocks, and the other softer Fuji stocks. I think over-exposing a half stop is possible if you're shooting all day exteriors and would like to reduce the grain - which I didn't have a huge problem with in general.

Just wondering what speed people recommend rating it at when shooting daytime exteriors?

I would guess either 80 or 64 ASA, since in daylight it is 100. 2/3 over

My first time shooting with this stock and liked the colors as well, A change from Kodak's, which is a nice alternate to have as an option.
