In most cases, people referring to "box speed" are referring to the ISO rating. If you refer to Delta 3200's "box speed", how does anyone know whether you mean it's ISO rating (1000) or the number in the name (3200)?
Wasn't the old Tri-400 really 80 speed that pushed well to 400? I remember reading a development paper somewhere that said that.

My question, how many films are exactly the exposure level listed on the box?

Also, why can't they just make a film speed that is actually 3200? Are there/were there any? Is P3200 really 3200? Which is better for resolution?
