Yes, it's Magnum PI. What are the camera setups going on here? It reminds me of the beach scenes from The Long Goodbye, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, and the farm scenes from Superman.

Diffusion/low-con filters? How does one replicate (in 16mm) that soft, slightly obscuring blur? Is it from too strong a sun?

What would be a recommended film stock? Exposure?

Try a fog filter, combined with a bright sky surrounded by dark borders / shapes (trees in this case) in order to see the halation intrude into the dark areas. A bright window in a dark room would be another version of that look.

Thank you, David.

Following along with the image and movies: Magnum and Long Goodbye, I'm wondering if Fuji Eterna 250D is ok to shoot with a polarizer in a West Coast setting? Would I be better off using 160t? I am worried about overexposure...

Or keep the camera in air-conditioning, then just take it out for the shot without wiping the lens. Assuming you're in Hawaii or even better, Florida. :P
