I see there are two options for Kodak 500T Color Negative. One is a Vision 3 (Stock # 7219) and the other is not a part of the Vision family (stock # 7230). I want to minimize grain, but don't mind some color saturation (actually prefer it). What are the characteristics of these two different stocks?

Thanks

I can't speak from direct work with the new '30, but from what I gather it's the "economy" stock -v- the '19 which is more "luxury coup." The '19, for a 500T is remarkably low in grain, and holds up well. I'd not hesitate on shooting it, and have when I get the chance, rated at 320.
Your best bet, of course, would be to shoot 100' of each and take them through your whole film chain. But, if I had to go in blind, wanting to minimize grain, and needing a 500T, I'd err towards the '19.
You should also contact your local kodak rep directly,

they'll be able to give you the pertinent information.

If you want less grain, shoot the '19. Assuming that this project isn't for direct 16mm printing, then any other post path allows you to increase contrast/saturation, whether in the D.I. for a film-out and/ or using 35mm Vision Premier print stock, or if this is just for a video finish, in any color-correction session.
