Superia 1600 can be a life saver. I consider it to be a special purpose film.

Indoors it is essential to meter for the shadows to avoid grain. Fearlessly and relentlessly use whatever method you prefer to minimized under exposed walls, shadows etc.
I found this film scans well.
dmr. Only you know what colour the brickwork outside the shop was and how it looked at that time of night. It looks as if the second pic is more accurate if you consider the brick to have an intrinsic natural colour but for a twilight tungsten lit scene the first looks more natural IMHO.
Good to know. I now have a roll of it and I'm going to try it out this weekend. I'm assuminng that it's actually native ISO 1600? (If it was, that probably makes it the fastest film out there, right?)
And just as a question, how's the exposure latitude, could I got to ISO 3200 if need be. or would it require a processing change?
