Hi everyone...

My first post on this forum... although i visit often. So anyhoo i need advice on shooting with Tri-x on my Beaulieu 4008zm2.

i will be shooting Daylight and Tungsten...

so i wonder in daylight what speed i set on the ASA dial and do i need filter key in or out...

also for Tungsten, what speed to set the dial at... and do i need the filter key?

And while i'm here... when i shoot K40 on the 4008zm2 in daylight, should i set the ASA dial to 25 or 40???

Argh!! sorry about this but up to now i've been using Canons and Nizo's which is simply pop the cart in and bob your uncle...

I just want to make sure i am exposing correctly... oh. i also use a Sekonic 308.

Cheers in advance folks.

From the Kodak site:

Tri-X Reversal Film 7266

This is a high-speed black-and-white Panchromatic film with an antihalation undercoat that makes it suitable for general interior photography with artificial light. It can be used in daylight and is particularly useful for sports pictures taken at regular speed or slow motion in weak light (overcast sky or late in the day). This film is characterized by excellent tonal gradation and sharpness. The film has a Daylight EI (ASA) of 200, Tungsten EI (3200K) (ASA) is 160.
