An upcoming shoot calls for Kodak 5222 b&w stock using just practicals (in the 2800-2900K temperature range). Will it look decent without filtering? If not, would you recommend an 82A to raise the temp, or what? Thanks.

My guess is the warmer light might make the film work slightly slower, in that it does have a slower speed under tungsten than daylight, but I can see no benefit from colour temperature filtration. If it were outdoors in the sun, traditional B&W filters might be called for (yellow to darken the sky and such)

The only way filters may be called for is to separate some tones that come together, and that yoiu probaly can only find out from (you guessed it) a test.

No need to correct the lower color temperature with filtration. Rate the film at EI-200 for any tungsten light source.
