      Hi Roger and everyone on the forum,

      I am working on a shoot film over the weekend on Kodak 500T.

      My question is about how to exposure 500t when shooting daylight without an 85 correction filter.

      I will instead alter the white balance during the DI.

      Would I have to compensate or can i just shoot at tungsten box speed?

        Interesting! I shot both interiors and exteriors for ‘Shawshank Redemption’ on a tungsten stock without a correction filter and I exposed at the ‘box speed’. I did the same on other films and always exposed the tungsten balanced stock at the film’s base ASA. I don’t see any reason you wouldn’t shoot at 500 ASA but I am open to persuasion!
