Hi all,

I have only ever shot 16mm 3 times before, and always in color.

I am considering shooting in Black and white, but have no previous experiance.

What should I bear in mind about about shooting in B/W as opposed to color?

What are peoples experiances of shooting with Black and white?

I am considering Kodak's 7231 80D for my bright exteriors, and the 7222 200T for my much dimmer evening interiors.

Thank you!

hi Sarfaraz,
i've ever shoot in b/w, and i use the 7231, with an unbelievable latitude exposure.
for interior don't be afraid by your light meter use your pan glass and if you can see light you 've got it in your film with t1.3 zeiss. for outside listen your light meter.
good luck.
Mikael.

Also, of course try and see beyond the colors to the values. Objects that really stand out in color (a red on a green, for instance) can get lost in each other if the film reads them as approximately the same value.
