I will be in NZ during July and August. How does the weather usually fare down there with regards to film speed. I am quite used to shooting around 100asa hand held in Australia as commonly there is very intense sunlight, pushing 400asa usage to around f/16-22 and higher with shutter speeds at 1/1000 or higher.

I suspect that in the South Island of NZ when the clouds roll over I will be choking myself if I bring mostly 100 speed film. Perhaps I should load 100 speed into the Bessa L and shoot ultra wide allowing for very low shutter speeds and keep 400 for the standard focal lengths.

Your thoughts?
