hello there,

I was wondering about on the Kodak website and stumbled upon the 5263/7263 500T in the comparison tool... where is this film placed? Is it older than 5279/7279? or did it exist next to it like expression films?

and when will the comparison tool be updated with all the new vision2 stocks???

and last but not least, does anybody know a reseller of motion picture film in still film cassettes in Europe? preferrably somewhere near Belgium...

It was originally called SO-63 and was designed for the Japanese market that wanted an even lower-contrast film stock than Expression 500T. It was somewhat soft, flat, and grainy. Used on some films like "Sunshine State", "Lost in Translation", "Demon Lover" and "Girl with the Pearl Earring" -- Kodak obsoleted it last year, just as it seemed some people were figuring out what to do with it.

Anyway, the new Vision-2 Expression 500T is superior all around to 5263 and 5284 but it's not as flat-looking as '63.

The film was made for a lower contrast, lower saturation "look" especially popular in Japan, and to a lesser extent, Europe at the time:

It worked very well for telecine or digital scanning. Prints were often made on Kodak VISION Premier Color Print Film 2393, giving a tone scale that they liked.

Here are some productions that used 5263:
