VISION 500T Film has outstanding skin tones and color reproduction, while adding technical innovations that improve product performance and increase product versatility.
The proprietary, advanced Dye Layering Technology (DLT) provides noticeably reduced grain in shadows, allowing you to pull out an amazing amount of shadow detail.
The proprietary Sub-Micron Technology enables 2 stops of extended highlight latitude, so you can follow the action into bright light-in a single shot-without worrying about blown-out details.
VISION 500T Film is designed to extend the capabilities of the DI (digital intermediate) process. The improved grain provides better to signal to noise capabilities allowing the colorist to provide greater detail in shadows, while the extended highlight latitude enables improved digital "dodging and burning" to provide more details in highlights.
As this film requires special processing (ECN-2) and is absolutely not to be sent out to any regular labs, because the protective backing can "gum up the works" in any standard commercial C-41 processing environment, the majority of this stuff gets processed DIY with our C-41 Kits. You can take off the backing before or during your own processing regimen and it is not that difficult to remove (just an extra step really) and there are a few dedicated labs out there that will process for you but it is implicit that you only use a lab that is dedicated to ECN-2 process.
