You do not need to use the filter key with 100D. The R10 has a slider that allows all SMPTE speeds to be read, along with a daylight/tungsten sensor. Since Kodak's 100D is notched as 100D, it will expose perfectly.

For reversal stocks, do not overexpose. Either be spot on or slightly under.

For negative stocks, you can overexpose without issues.

I recommend your first roll be used as a test of all the features, such is in-camera fades, dissolves, double exposures. That way you know if everything is tip top. Not to mention, that sort of thing is fun to set up and shoot.

But never use a quarter that is older than the camera since the space-time continum can be displaced and the camera may simply disappear right in front of your eyes, with the quarter falling harmlessly to the ground.

Took me three times to figure that one out.
