Hello,

Does anyone know whether or not the 'Braun Nizo s560' will be able to handle/understand the new Kodak Vision3 500T film stock?

Thank you all!

If you slide the filter switch to bulb, it will read the film at ASA 160-- a little too overexposed. If you want auto exposure you're better off with V200 in that camera, in which case you can slide the filter switch either way.

V500T is speed-notched for ASA 400D/250T, and is supplied in a notchless cartridge to set cameras at ASA 250, which is one-stop overexposed-- but this is per Kodak's recommendations-- they do it this way on purpose.

As these Nizos only read up to ASA 160D/100T, they won't go that high. Many cameras have this problem with ASA 500 films. Even cutting a notch in the cartridge will only allow the ASA 160 maximum.

Of course, 500T will work fine in any 160 camera that has manual exposure override-- just open up the aperture a stop or so for each metered reading.
