Mix Vision3 Vision2, or pull Vision3?
Posted 25 February 2011 - 12:22 AM
We are planning on shooting S16 on SR2, with prime superspeeds. So far, the Vision3 family are only 200T, 250D and 500T. There will be exterior shots, and I like to shoot pretty open aperture, with not too much ND-filters. So how well does Vision2 50D work/match compared to say using Vision3 250D and rate it lower, like 125 or 64? What would the grain structure and dynamic range be like? I don't worry to much about difference in grain, since it will be very different styles/tones/atmosphere between scenes, and I will most likely shoot each scene with a specific stock. But yeah, is it better to get 250D and pull or go with 50D?

Just out of curiosity, how much can you rate down or pull Vision3 500T (other film stock too)?
Like, how different will a 500T rated 250T be from the real 200T, or if the 500T is rated at 200T?
Push-processing gives it more contrast and grain, but pulling lowers contrast and makes it less grainy (dynamic range is improved as well right)?

Push processing is more common on a 500t, Thats because its the fastest stock available,and sometimes you want to go faster.
Pulling has more to do with 'look'. Its the same thing as pushing a 50d 1 stop. It wont give you exactly one more stop of availablelight, but you will have a more aggresive look.. Good Luck!
Hey and a wide shot on a 200t will always have the suggestion ofmore grain to your brain then a CU on a 500t.
Start to learn about the characteristics of film, how to light it up,how to rate it, etc.. And always leave room to experiment.
We are one of the last generations that shoot film, and I can say that film isthe best way to learn shooting.
