Hi pixelord,

As I understand the difference between consumer and pro film was based on how long the film will be sitting in the camera. For the consumer who shoots only occasionally, this could be a long time.

The pro, on the other hand, is likely to shoot and get the film developed the same day.

So the color balance, which changes slightly over time, was geared for the expected behavior.

Anybody can use pro film in any film camera it fits, you just have to behave like a pro and take it out soon and get it developed quickly. Some films specify keeping it refrigerated until just before use.

ps I work for Kodak but not in film. The opinions and positions I take are my own as a hobbyist (like you) not necessarily those of EKC.
