    Got a roll of Ektachrome 320T (Tungsten).
    Any recommendations from experienced (or non-expereinced :D) users?

    thanks a lot.

    Okay, non-experienced here. Isn't tungsten film the stuff you can use indoors under artificial light without a flash? The "tungsten" part, I think I read somewhere, means that it won't give you that horrible orange overcast that regular film does in your basic light bulb light from the living room lamps.

    Even at 320 (I'm assuming that's the ISO), I'd still use a tripod.

    No idea whatsoever what such a film might do in daylight outdoors! How many shots on the roll? If there's a lot, you could play around with it; you know, break some rules, run some red lights! ;)

    Tungesten film will have a blueish cast to it when used under natural sunlight, the same way that daylight film will have a orangy-yellow cast when used under tungsten lights. You can get corrective filters, but they block a lot of light, so it's better to just use the correct film for the correct application.

    thanks but it was my intention to get tungsten film, I'm going to use it indoors without flash and with flash with filter.
