Canon 514-XLS and 64T processing/exposure

Post by supa8 » Thu May 10, 2012 2:23 pm

Hi
My friend needs to send a roll of 64T shot with a 514 XL-S for processing.
It was shot outdoors and the filter was set to daylight.
There is conflicting information out there as regards the 514xl and Ektachrome 64T.
Is the silent version built the same as the sound version?
In which case, I would have assumed the film was measured at 160asa (not as 40 as opposed to most cameras).
Any help regarding what push/pull processing is required would be greatly appreciated
Thanks
"EE lock. Point the camera at something to make the aperture 1 and 1/3 stop more open, then press the EE lock:
Canon 514XL, 514XL-S (cameras believe it is 160 ASA Tungsten)
note: Canon 514XLS will overexpose by 1 stop in normal light, by just hitting EE switch-no other changes. Will overexpose 2-3 stops in very bright light, by hitting EE switch- no other changes- per owners manual."

It is indeed correct that the design of the 514 means it exposes 64t as 160 asa film. You will need to have the film push processed. Pushing by 1 stop will be adequate if you need to request pushing in multiples of stops.
good luck with it,

Thanks Richard.
In case the filter had been switched to tungsten on this camera, what should be done instead by the way?

Well, 64t is a tungsten film. With the filter switch set to 'bulb', the internal 85 filter will be switched out. This means the film will come out a blue colour. You can't do anything about the wrong colour balance I am afraid.
Just going by the numbers, it will still be 1 and 1/3rd stops under exposed. However the extra blue light will probably reduce this a bit. Still just push one stop.
