hi
i have a few questions, baring in mind im still new-ish to using the format.

1.) recently shot 2 rolls of tri-x using a braun nizo 801, and am waiting for the results. i then read that it would be overexposed because the nizo can only go to 160 asa. so how will the film turn out? (i shot in overcast conditions outdoors, mainly architecture etc)

2.) if the nizo only reads to 160 ASA how does this affect the vision2 200t stock?
and even 500t?

3.) i have yet to be introduced to the world of cartridge notches, and basically know absolutely nothing about it, does anyone have a basic guide, photos etc of what its all about to get me started?

4.) are there actually any super8 cameras that can read any current kodak stock with an internal automatic exposure meter, without messing with notches on cartridges?

thanks for any help, much appreciated.

There is no reason for worry

So little overexposure would be fine for Tri-X. That is absolutely OK.
For color negative stocks it is recommended to overexpose up to 1 stop

You can read some info about cartridge notches on the following site:

glad to hear that, thanks for the quick answer. have had extreme exposure problems before with a nizo that had a broken internal metre, so slightly nervous.
