Hello- I have a Canon 814 xl-s and I will be shooting a darker, interior scene using Vision 3 500T.  I understand the Canon 814 xl-s can accept and recognize films up to 400 ASA.  I have further read that Kodak notches its 500T at 400ASA, so according to this, I will not need to use any kind of external light meter and can use the internal exposure meter.  Wondering if anyone can verify this for me?  Also, the Canon has a variable shutter and I would like to keep it at 220 because I feel it gives a sharper image, but have the ability to go to 150 if necessary.  Thank you.

The 220 shutter option will allow more light to the film but will have more motion blur from the longer exposure time, so less sharp unless it's a still shot. With a darker interior scene consisting of existing light, you'll most likely need all the exposure that you can get, f1.4 with a 220 shutter.
