Re: Help Needed with Shooting Old Super 8 Film

Thank you BAC! Also I was wondering would I beable to shoot the old Tri-X 7278 stock with a Nizo S 560? I read the manual and I hear that it only reads up to 160 Asa for tungsten and 100 Asa for daylight. Is there a way that I can properly expose this film?
