    Fooling the DX code.

    Is there a photo shop that sells labels to change the DX rating of film?
    I want to do some night street photography in places where a flash would be,how can I put it, detrimental to my existence. Not really that serious but I could get my kit stolen.
    Thanks Much,
    Mike

    I found this on the internet: http://www.firstcall-photographic.co...trip_of_9.html

    The firm is located in Britain but I do not think that with labels shipping costs would be an obstacle.

    Good luck

    You could just use the exposure compensation dial, assuming you have one. If you are using a compact without this control there is usually some way to tell it not to fire the flash.

    I think you can find DX labels at www.porters.com. B&H sells DX coded bulk cassettes as well.

    Most cameras with DX have a default setting, usually ISO 100, for use with film cassettes w/o DX. You could put electrical tape over the DX bar on the cassette and this would make the camera kick in the default setting. You'll save having to buy labels and you might just have electrical tape hanging around the house. ISO 100 might be slow enough for your night shots. As with anything else, you'll have to experiment.

    If you cannot switch off the flash stick electrical tape over it.

    Thanks Dave. I checked out the Porters site. Just what the doctor ordered.
