Hi, apart from the one stop difference, which is the better stock for daylight work, there will be no additional lighting. Plan to shoot in December in the uk. I am use to kodachrome stock, but i must plan for grubby light on the day. Which is the sharper of the two stocks, any other stock recommendations will be greatly received. Andy
For daylight, I would use the 7205. Using a tungsten balance film in daylight means that you are using a film that has faster blue-sensitive grains just to compensate for the blue light you are "throwing away" by using the recommened 85 orange filter. Whenever possible, match the stock to the light source --- having to use a filter just means you are using faster (grainier) emulsions to compensate for the color correcting filter.
