Hello all, i hope you are doing well!
I'm planning to shoot some stills to accompany my next film, and i'm going crazy trying to decide whereas i should go for Portra 400 or Vision 3 500T processed in ECN2 ..
I will shoot at night under street lights (tungsten and metal white lamps) so here are the questions that will help me decide :
-Does Portra 400 (which is a daylight stock ) handles Street lights at night and tungsten well?
From what i've seen, i really don't like Cinestill (which is based on Vision 3 500T) or V3 500T processed in C41, but i came across few Vision 3 photographies processed in "ECN2",
and i was impressed by the feel and the color renditions, it looked like a still from a Motion picture movie shot on Arriflex or Panavision.
-So, do Vision 3 stills processed in ECN2 look exactly the same as in Motion picture camera? Vision 3 500T is for me the most wonderful stock ever created and there is no Tungsten stock in this ISO range for still photography,
so why is this stock not more popular in the photography world? Am i missing something? Some say it has a different look because of its original purpose (designed for 24fps and more), but a stock exposed and processed in the same conditions should give the same result no matter the camera right?
And last thing, not all street lights are the same, what is the best stock for yellow lamps (almost white) ?
Thank you all!
