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?

it is most likely from a diffusion filter and not the stock. Fuji tends to be a little softer than Kodak, if you wanted to use a softer stock in addition to a filter As to which filter, I dunno, but there are many. I think the Tiffen site has before and after pics of there filters.

OP, you've double-posted this. You won't get a better answer than David Mullen's.
