I want to shoot some indoor scenes of my family over Christmas - super 16mm using Kodak Vision 3 500t and Eterna Vivid 500t. My viewfinder is dim as it is, and I don't want to shoot wide open due to dim light. SO - I am thinking of omitting the 85 filter needed for tungsten balanced film. I assume I can do any colour correction afterwards - is this a good idea? Any watchouts ?
If you're shooting without any extra lights and only household lighting, you may find yourself shooting wide open anyway even at 500 ASA. You might consider pushing it a stop when shooting.
You won't need the 85. As Josh said, you only need that for when you shoot tungsten under daylight. Even if you have some light falling in from the windows, I always find the blue cast to be a gorgeous look during the winter time. But that's just me.
