The Look and Feel of Vintage Kodak

Oct 4, 2020

Kodak 5219 is a high-speed, tungsten-balanced film characterized by a fine grain structure, broad dynamic range, and the flexible nominal sensitivity of a 500-speed index. It has a wide exposure latitude with exceptional highlight control for working in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from high-contrast outdoor lighting to mixed interior light situations. Advanced Dye Layering Technology (DLT) is also used to reduce the appearance of grain in the shadows for cleaner detailing and clarity. As part of the VISION3 series of film stocks, it has high archival stability and is well suited to digital post-production processes.

Films shot on Kodak Vision3 500T 5219 include; Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood (2019), Shoplifters (2018), Jackie (2018) Hail, Caesar! (2016), TV Series Mad Men (2007) and NSync: Bigger than Live (2001)
