Does anyone here have a lot of experience using Expression filmstocks? I am going to Savannah Georgia and I wanted try shoot a few rolls of Expression. I thought it might give me a more romantic look?

Your Kodak sales office has demos comparing the stocks. The Kodak VISION2 Expression Color Negative Film is slightly lower in contrast. It is a great choice for a softer look with slightly lower contrast and color saturation, or to give additional flexibility in telecine transfer.

I recall that Mr. Mullen used 5229 in his recent feature "Akeelah and the Bee":

Interesting. Maybe I will just get a few different filmstocks and try them out to see how they all look.

Thanks.

5229 is comparable to 5218, only with a slightly pastel quality, softer contrast, and "smokier" blacks. I rated it at 320 ASA myself and thought it looked lovely.

I rated it normally and combimed it with a Low Con 1 filter and it looked fantastic - infinite blacks that held details.
