Orwo N74 Plus or Double X?
Posted 16 April 2012 - 04:56 PM
How does the Orwo look pushed to 800? How does Double X look pushed to 400? Or are they better off rated at the manufacturer's recommendation?

I am shooting night exteriors, night interiors, afternoon exterior, and early morning (dawn) exterior. My lighting consists of available light, plus compact fluorescent bulbs (120-300 watt equivalents) I'm shooting on an Aaton XTR prod super 16.
Is there a huge difference between these stocks? Is one grainier than the other? How do they hold up if exposed at the manufacturer's suggested ISO (Orwo-400, Kodak 200T/250D)? How do they hold up if rated below/higher than the suggested ISO and pulled/pushed processed?
I was thinking of using the ORwo for night exteriors since it's already rated at 400 and can push it to 800. And I would use Double X for interiors and the daytime shots.
Does it really just come down to how much grain I want or don't want?
Again, please try to be as unbiased as possible.

I accidentally rated it at 250 for tungsten... It's actually 320 . I was shootIng a Cooke 9-50 t2.5 at about a 3....meter was rating @2.8... Fairly low light interior with strong backlight on the subjects, key was a 650 bounce
I was tempted to push but glad I didn't ...lots of shadow detail with great highlights
I bet if you had some fast primes and lit 56k you'd have great results for your night time scenes
It is grainy but with a bit of grain management software you could subtract a bit if you found it too distracting

I like the spinning butterfy images. Have you degrained those shots somehow? Or just graded it down to get that nice solid black. My eye says there is less grain in the grey compared to the walk through the lab.

I am shooting a new music video right now and I am using the Orwo-74 as normal in the same situation with that Moth Zoetrope so I will put some of that footage up soon.

N74 is such s good choice for the conditions I was shooting under. I was shooting behind the scenes for a music video. The video was shot in s dark bar lit for 800 Asa for an Epic/Scarlet shoot and it was lit tungsten... So Kodak 200 speed was not really an option
I was lucky in that my subjects really worked with the grain and texture... My subjects were Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, John Andrson and John Rich
I didn't think I was allowed to talk about the shoot but Willie has a news story about the shoot on his website
When/if allowed ill post some clips
