Has anyone seen this yet? I came across it recently on the Kodak website. Can anyone elaborate on how this works?

I remember reading an article about how a layer of film could be removed from the camera negative and you could get a 1000 asa film with very low grain but the film would be unprintable but easily used for a digital intermediate. Is this something like that?

Would you use this kind of film in daylight?

Who has the KODAK VISION2 HD Digital Processor?

Here's the technical data for 7299:

Contact your local Kodak sales office for details and to see a demo. They can also tell you which post production facilities have the Kodak VISION2 HD Digital Processor.

No layers have been "removed", but the contrast and tone scale have been optimized for telecine transfer using the Kodak VISION2 HD Digital Processor. The film can be used between EI 320 and EI 500 with tungsten or daylight illumination without filtration, or a color correction filter can be used.

They eliminated to brick-orange color mask, although that does not give you a huge boost in sensitivity or less grain or anything, but it may give you less noise in a video transfer.

It's basically a very low contrast tungsten-balanced color negative that can be rated at 320 or 500 ASA with normal development (obviously you can push it.) Truth is that it seems to look better at 320 ASA from what I've seen.

It has a lot of latitude, which is why you can rate it at different speeds and shoot without the 85 filter outdoors, although you can do these things with normal stocks too.

The HD processor is something the post house doing the transfer to HD can get from Kodak I believe.

I think it's an interesting idea although I would prefer that they offered a slow-speed version for people who want finer-grain and more sharpness (something that can be rated in the 50 to 200 ASA range.)
