I'm mostly new to cinematography, and am looking for ways to cut back a little on spending while I figure out how to shoot. I've gotten ahold of a 35mm slr, and was wondering what sort of film I should look into shooting that would most closely represent the stock that I'm running through my 16mm (usually kodak 7218, 7217). I'd like to do various tests with processing and exposure without breaking the bank :)

Thanks!

You probaly noticed that the 35mm versions start witha 5, while the 16 and smaller start with a 7 (Someday we will find out what thet first digit means in Kodak-Speak)

So for example 7218, and 5218 are both covered on the same datasheet.

Now If you look at th ethread about RGB lab you will find a more general discussion about using still cameras as a analog for Motion pictures.

some place has put the actual film stock into film cartridges so that you can shoot on a 35mm photo camera.. Forgot where though. If somebody knows please post!

Frankly, I think you are better off shooting a small amount of 16mm for your tests, rather than trying to extrapolate 35mm still photos.

You can always "load your own" cassettes with 35mm motion picture film. But most labs prefer not to process short still lengths, because of the added risk of a splice breaking.
