Does anyone have any thoughts on shooting outdoors in gray/gloomy conditions.
I'm wondering specifically about using 64t, but are there any generalities?
Is an 85 filter necessary with tungsten film even when there isn't much sunlight prevalent?
Thanks for the help.

Not only do you need the 85 filter, you may need a UV filter as well.

The light is often even bluer on overcast days than on sunny days, so definitely you need the 85B filter if you want to get close to a neutral color cast.
