Hello,
I was under the impression that VNF stocks were all inherently low contrast to facilitate telecine. Now I'm not so sure. I know that VNF-1 is a slightly different process (though similar) to E-6, but what is the practical difference to the finished processed film? Are VNF stock projectable?

The VNF camera films are projection contrast, just as the E-6 films. The characteristic curves are in the published technical data:

You may be thinking of EASTMAN Commercial Original (ECO) film 7255 or 7252, which were low contrast reversal films.

I might add that the E-6 films in general are newer than VNF films. So, although there are similarities, the E-6 films seem to produce better overall results. 5285 is one example of a very nice looking E-6 film.

Kodak 7285/5285 E-6 Ektachrome (Motion Picture)

The results I have seen with the newer E-6 reversal films are surprising and can add a unique look where the traditional negative look is not desired.
