   KODAK releases the world’s finest grain motion picture stock to date: the KODAK VISION3 50D Color Negative Film 5203/7203 with unsurpassed image quality, flexibility, archival stability and higher digital compatibility.  Finer grain means cleaner DI files and video transfers, ensuring pristine images full of color and detail, especially in high contrast daylight situations.

   Like its VISION2 5201/7201 predecessor, scenes can be captured with less or no fill, while still retaining shadow and highlight detail and providing faster lighting set-ups.  With unrivaled highlight latitude, KODAK VISION3 50D delivers for filmmaker the world as they see it… and together with the KODAK VISION3 Film family, all the tools necessary to do it without compromise.


It’s been a bit of a dry spell for me in regards to posts on Latent Imager.  I needed to set aside the projects so I could focus more on my class work at American University.  BUT… I’m back and hope to have the “Shadows” project posted soon.  In the meantime, here’s a :30 spot I put together in a After Effects class to promote the blog:


Need film stock?  You can order it directly from Kodak.  Just call 1-800-621-3456.  If you’re a student, you can get a 30% student discount simply by emailing them a copy of your Student ID: Do it five minutes before you call.  You’ll need to email them your ID each time you order.

To greatly streamline the ordering process, go online,, and get the catalog #’s for the stock you want to purchase.  It will be shipped from either NY or LA, depending on how late in the day you order and/or how quickly you need your film.  You can, of course, place orders online as well.

No matter how you order, they will charge you tax but ordering from Kodak insures that your stock will be fresh.
