Hello,

 

It's that time of the year again! I'll be shooting outdoors, in color. 

 

I'm not sure what the Daylight/Tungsten filter setting should be. 

 

1. Does the camera automatically detect that 7203 is a Daylight stock, therefore effectively pushing the 85filter out of the way? 

 

2. Does the user have to set the filter switch to Tungsten to make sure the 85filter is out of the way?

 

3. Should I just always keep the filter switch set to Tungsten (light bulb), so that the 85filter remains out of the way?

 

Thank you!!!

The 85 switch is operated by a pin above the gate. If the cart has no notch above the gate then it will push the 85 out. If it does have a notch then just switch it out yourself.

You mention 7266. The 85 should be out for that as well. It's just for balancing colour film- it does nothing for b/w, or nothing useful anyway.

Yes

 

Yes

 

and yes.

 

Given the age of the camera, it is a good idea to always make sure the 85 is out of the way. Tungsten outdoors?? Use a good glass 85 screwed onto the front of the lens or correct during post.  You can see it move if  you look closely into the lens while actuating the filter switch.

 

sweet camera!
