Dono. I want it because I like to shoot it at night and then cross it.
EPT crossed doesn't look a thing like Elitechrome 400 through an 80C and then crossed.
Sure, I could get roughly the same results in Photoshop... but then I might as well be shooting digital. :P
Use Fujichrome T64. Very good sharpness.
Small inconvenience : 3100 K (instead of 3200 K).
Do with Kodak what it did with us : forget it.
Sergio. RPT is nothing like EPT and vice versa. EPT has a unique palette, wonderful grain excellent latitude and cross processes like no other.
Kodak has forgotten us how; by offering more choice in excellent film than the market can bear; by updating their product; or is it because they are trying to keep the company from going belly up?
Kodak is a company not a charity.

So? What about incandescent lights in the house that are much closer to tungsten than daylight... and most lighting intended for home use is going to match that, not daylight too...
And remember that HMI, which gets a lot of use on the bigger movie sets, is closer to daylight balance. Phosphor-based and tri-color technologies (cold cathode, florescent, LEDs) can be set to whatever color balance you want. I suspect that they'll stick with tungsten balance until they stop using film and probably beyond, simply because that's what people are used to dealing with.
they'll stick with the tungsten simply because it's paid for & it's cheap. try figuring out how much it will cost a studio to upgrade to HMI lights, from a stable of mole-richardsons or arri's, and it wil become apparent pretty fast (I know--been there/done that). tungsten's not going anywhere anytime soon in terms of studio work, since it's also a great source for digital, and video--multimedia etc, where everything in the commercial world is headed. I think we'll be using our moles & lowells longer than the speedotrons to be honest.
EPY, EPN--they seem like old-fashioned films compared to the newer stuff, but they're the tools of the trade for product, architectural & furniture work. anything for accurate color repro.
Yeah when I said Tungsten, what I meant was incandescent, like the lighting at wedding receptions ETC, its more likely to be closer to tungsten than daylight.
I finally called up Kodak.
EPT (160T) and EPJ (320T) are both gone. They've been out of production for some months now.
