    Im relatively new to all of this and what not but isint the new Portra 400 very very similar to the 500T your all trying to get. You can see some comparisons of them here, both in terms of colour and low light. I understand the colour balance is different but surely thats an easier fix then cutting down huge rolls of cine film and finding a specialist lab, filter over the lens maybe? quick photoshop layer for those who scan.

    A filter puts you back to 100 ISO, thus defeating the purpose of a fast film. Besides, this kind of experiment is fun.

    Who wouldn't want more options? ECN-II for still photographers would open up a huge world. 50D anyone???

    Good points though... if we're scanning anyways, the corrections could be made post, and with daylight film.

    So to clarify, there's no orange mask on ECN-II films, is that right?

    Interesting comparison!

    The 500T is available for nearly free as short ends, that's one reason to mess with it. 100 ft of movie film is next to worthless ($16) to someone shooting 35mm movie film, but that's a dang good price for 18 36 exposure rolls once you run it through a bulk loader. If I had ordered only 100 ft of it I wouldn't have to mess with the split reels and rewinds, but I ordered 200 ft (expecting to get a couple of 100 ft sections) and got 200 feet of brand new film in a sealed can! If you stalk ebay, I believe it would be possible to get it even cheaper still, in 400 ft rolls, which yes would have the problem of spooling it down, but would also be a nearly endless supply of 36 exposure rolls.

    And hey, if this works out, we can have Vision4 film in our still cameras long before Kodak releases a Portra variant!

    Interesting that in those articles they mention getting it processed at Technicolor. They must know someone who works there and was willing to deal with short pieces of film for them or something. I wouldn't normally expect Technicolor to bother with such nothing work, being such a huge company and all.

    Actually I believe an 85B filter would put you down to 320 ISO, but the point is valid.

    If I read that article correctly, they simply shot everything unfiltered and did only minor tweaking in Photoshop.

    I plan to shoot it unfiltered (and filtered) in daylight just to see how off it really is.

    Well you need an 80A I believe, which is 2 stops.

    80A goes the other way - lets you shoot on daylight film using tungsten lighting.

    But we know what we're talking about

    Does anyone know of a Euro-based ECN lab that's happy to deal with amateurs sending in short strips of film?

    500T looks interesting indeed.
