I saw this thread: http://www.cinematog...ic=12419&page=2
Among many others on the internet. I get the jist of it but I didn't want to base my research off circa 2006 data since film is uh on life support or at least was but still. I'm curious about using Eastman Double-X 5222 in my 35mm SLR, the reason I ask is because when I saw the movie Raging Bull I realized that those fight scenes in the ring were easily the most beautiful thing I've ever seen...now I realize that I'm probably not going to get the look perfect but I love the look of the stock in general and was wondering if I could use it for stills. I know its not designed for print but I could get it scanned just like digital intermediate process and work with it. If its too much of a hassle to shoot 5222 in an SLR then I would certainly be open to similar black and white film for still 35mm but allot of the black and white I see just doesn't quite look like Double-X 5222, especially from movies like Raging Bull!
