Hello.

I'm about to embark upon my first journey into the realms of 7201 and just wanted to find out whether or not people feel that there is any use over-exposing the stock to reduce grain or whether I should just expose it to 50 ASA since the grain is quite fine anyway. Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Edward Goldner

The grain is certainly quite fine as is, even on 16mm. I'd really not worry about over-exposing it.

And interesting thing about the 7201 is that it gets a little magenta in the highlights, too much for me taste. At least that´s what happen to me. Hopefully you will share your results with me.

The grain is pretty tight, but I've been shooting my 7201 and other negs about 1/2 stop over just for a little extra density... if thats what you like.

It depends on the saturation and contrast you are going for, but I find rating 7201 at 40 asa is a nice sweet spot to start.
