I am just sharing in someone wants to look for more information.
Typically I shoot superia, 200, 400 and I also tried 800.
I like to overexpose a bit my film with 1/3 of stop. So as I tried 800 I thought I could try the same by setting my iso in my camera 640... The results I get are a bit overexposed.. which typically I do not see when I apply the same technique with 200 or 400 film. Next time I will shoot it where it really is iso 800.

Hi all,
I am posting back some shots of my first superia iso 800 film.

These are my comments.
I found that the iso box rating is very accurate. Typically I light t slight overexpose.. This one I was shooting at 640 iso instead of 800. In most of my shots I had to dial exposure down in lightroom. Next time I will shoot it at 800.

Is the film grainy? Yes it is and I liked it
Do the colors are a bit muted? Yes they are but I also liked it.
Why iso 800.. For my style of shooting.. high shutter speeds with deep depth of field I think is the answer I am looking for.
