Dear all,
when is getting dark, like dusk, when you are indoors and the light still is not plenty
what would be your choice in terms of brand and iso film for color and black and white photography?

Regards
Alex

In this case I go either for a tripod or select the proper light (e.g. flash). I don't really like the grainy high ISO films in color.
Though, for B&W I liked the Ilford HP5 quite a lot.

I like Fuji FP-3000B instant film. It has an amazing 3000 ISO and works great indoors. I have to use an ND filter when outdoors with it.
Unfortunately Fuji just stopped producing it but it is available until the current stock is gone.

For B&W Tri-X at ISO 1600 or 3200 stand develop in HC-110 for 60 minutes @68 Deg F. See the test scans, http://forum.mflenses.com/tri-x-stand-develop-iso-400-1600-and-3200-t67866.html.

Color indoors, I would use flash. You might try Fuji Superia X-tra ISO 800.

Outdoors, sturdy tripod with ISO 400 negative film. Probably ok to under-expose by 1 stop.

I should do a test on that. Planning a photo trip to the coast tomorrow. I'll have to remember to throw a roll of color film in the bag.
