Kodak 5230 Film Stock Test

Source:James Neihouse

Here are a couple of takes from a test roll of Kodak 5230 that I shot last week. Both scenes are with the same lighting set up and are at the same exposure, they were shot back to back, I even left the flash frame in to prove it;)

I really like the skin tones and the way the stock falls off in the dark areas. The highlights seem to hold up very well. There is some noise and some blocking induced by the H264 compression for Vimeo. :(

Comments welcome.
