Film stock Advice needed

Matthew Phillips

Recommended Posts

I am currently in the pre-production stage of a series of commercials. We are planning on shoting them on 16mm or 35mm. I want a stock that has fine grain and excellent color rending and rich blacks. We will be shooting in a studio so we will have access to a large amount of different lights.


I was think about KODAK VISION2 5212 / 7212 100T.


Any thoughts or advice.

Choose the slowest film stock that gives you the desired stop for the amount of light you have available. The Kodak VISION2 stocks have the best image structure (least grain, best sharpness) in each of their speed classes. The Kodak website has technical data and a stock comparison tool:




For telecine transfer, consider the lower contrast "Expression" look films.
