To date, my color film experience is basically none. I have been very hesitant to use it for a few different reasons, but I have shot a few (3 to be exact) rolls of Porta 400 with my Hasselblad. Those rolls are still in my camera bag as I have yet to send them to the The Darkroom for processing. I've been watching all three episodes of the show that Mainecoonmaniac posted in this thread: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum47/106045-those-who-love-film.html In episode 2, where they are going on a 'light walk', Ryan mentions that you "cannot loose highlight detail with color negative film." He goes on to mention that you should err on the side of OVER exposure with color negative film, instead of under exposing. He also mentions that if he meters at say f4 1/2000th, he is going to shoot it at 1/1000th for that one stop over exposure. While I find his methods quite intriguing, the one thing that I can't wrap my mind around is the highlight detail bit. Can you truly NOT loose highlight detail with color negative film???
