B&W film question
Posted 15 May 2007 - 03:24 PM
I was not sure which stock to start with to just shoot random stuff outdoors at the park, and other outdoor sceens.
I picked 7231 50D. I just received it and looked at the box. The box say it's 3200K which is tungsten.
What's going to happen if I shoot this outdoors? I know that if it was color, it would have a blue glow to it unless I had an 85 filter. Being it's B&W, what's going to happen? Do I need a filter of sorts?

OK, thanks. I was just a little confused on why it came in 64T or 80D.
It's both 64T AND 80D, all in one convenient package! Black and white film is slightly more sensitive to the blue end of the spectrum, therefore it has a higher sensitivity when used in daylight (where the light is blue) than it does under tungsten (where the light is orange).
