I have a Yashica super 800 which has a built in tungsten filter for a movie light. Since 64T is already tungsten balanced, I would not need the filter when using the movie light -I think.
What about shhoting on daylight? I guess I would need some kind of red filtering, to counteract the film's balance towards tungsten -which must render daylight colors somewhat blueish. Am I correct?
What about the effective ASA number? Since my camera has a through the lens metering sysytem, what should I expect?
I'm planning on shooting skateboarding and snowboarding, any sugestions.

Best regards from Chile, Wally.

The filter comes out for tungsten shooting. 64T needs an 85B filter in daylight, the built-in 85A isn't quite sufficient correction. That brings the daylight speed dow to 40. Your camera may or may not meter 64T correctly- many don't- so if it reads the 64T cartridge as 40, you'll need to stop down 2/3 of a stop from what the camera's meter tells you, or meter manually.
