The filter pack would be different for any printer because of
different lamps (which age, dim, and change color temperature over
time), settings, and other variable factors.
Typically when printers are shared there are shared results too (or at
least it was this way where I went to school)... You can easily get a
ballpark figure of what filters you would want to shoot with
compensating for film speed and the focal length (assuming the
original results are for 16->16, not S8->16)...
Even when using other peoples numbers you shouldn't always expect
perfect results... It's a little frustrating the number of times I
have used color packs suggested by others and come out in the end with
an image that is a little too over exposed and a little too blue (or
yellow, or whatever)...
The only way to get it perfect would be to do a color test yourself
with the stock and footage your using and get your own results...
