    Hello,

    if everything goes fine I should soon be an owner of a mint T3. As the camera will come with a filter adapter I was wondering whether using the camera with BW filter (yellow, orange, red) would be feasible.

    The point is - as far as I know the camera does not offer a manual ISO setting. The exposure compensation allows adjustments up to +/- 2 stops.

    Now, using a Pyrocat HD for development I usually expose the films at 1/2 - 2/3 stop lover speeds than the box speed. That can be easily handled with exposure compensation on the T3. However if I would use lower than box film speed with say and orange filter that requires 2 stops more exposure compensation it seems that I could have a problem to obtain proper exposure.

    So - how do you handle this? Any tricks?
