Hey Forum,

Fist time poster here. I have tried to decipher what information I can find on this forum regarding this issue, but am still struggling with it.

I have a 310 XL camera, and want to start shooting 200T for indoor daylight (using available light through a window) and indoor low light (candlelight) settings. What steps do I have to take to get proper exposure. I understand to cut a filter notch in the cartridge. After that...

Thanks.

Hi Michael:

I would notch hack the cartridge so that it reads it at 100 ASA and just shoot. I tried this method last summer with my 310XL and it gave me the following results. I also kept the filter set to tungsten (bulb).

Kodak's VISION 200T is speed-notched for ASA 160, but they supply it in a filter-notchless cartridge. The idea is that cameras will read it at ASA 100 this way. That's one-stop overexposed, but it's how Kodak likes it. If you cut a notch into it, that Canon will read it at ASA 160. Either way is OK.

A bit dyslexic in my reply. Thanks for the clarification Jim!

Michael. I distinctly remember not cutting a notch for the time I shot this. Sorry for any confusion.
