What is the difference between ISO 400 and 800?
A 400 speed film needs half the light as a 200 speed film. An 800 speed film needs half the light of a 400 speed film. The benefits is that, with a faster film, you can use a faster shutter speed or a smaller aperture to get a correct exposure.
What is the best ISO for 35mm film?
Set the Film ISO If you plan to shoot indoors in low light conditions, film ISOs of 400, 800, or even 1600 are preferred. If you are shooting outside and you have lots of sunlight, try to use ISO 100 film, or even slower (you can find films with ISO 50 or 25).
Can you shoot 800 ISO in daylight?
The tungsten balance makes for some extremely interesting results, and it’s true that photographers can make pictures with 800T that we can’t make with any other stock. The rule with Cinestill 800T is, in most people’s eyes, that it’s a film not meant for daylight photography.
Can you use 400 ISO film outside?
ISO 400 film has long been marketed for indoor use. It’s only one stop slower than ISO 800, and two stops faster than ISO 100. If you’re looking for a film that you can reasonably use indoors without a flash, but which will also work outdoors in a pinch, go with ISO 400.
When should I use 400 ISO film?
High-speed or fast, films range from 400 to 3200 ISO. These films give you a lot more flexibility on overcast days and in low light situations. Also, they are a good choice if you’re shooting fast-moving subjects. You get more noticeable grain with fast films.

Is 400 ISO grainy?
ISO 400 photos will have more noise than lower ISO shots. Without seeing your shots, it’s hard to say, but what you’ve described sounds normal. Just to second Ron’s comments, images at ISO 400 are grainy, just like when shooting ISO 400 film is grainier than with ISO 50 or ISO 100.
What’s the difference between 100 and 400 ISO film?
Common film speeds are 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600 and 3200 ISO. Notice the pattern of doubling and halving again? A 200 ISO film reacts to light twice as fast as a 100 ISO film, a 400 ISO film half as fast to react to the light as an 800 ISO film. Film Speed and Stops
Which is more sensitive to light 100 ISO or 400 ISO?
100 ISO film is 1 stop less sensitive to light than 200 ISO film. That is to say, it will react to light that travels through the aperture and shutter half as fast. A 100 ISO film is more broadly suited to brighter day time shooting. 800 ISO film is 1 stop more sensitive to light than 400 ISO film.
Which is better Kodak Portra 400 or ISO 800?
As you can see from the comparison above, the Portra 400 film snapped in a flash to catch the first subject in focus while the line behind him fades to a blur. As for the still model on the right, the ISO 800 film was able to provide a heavy grain setting while providing a clear focus on the subject.
How does the ISO affect the look of a photo?
Varying the ISO of your camera can have a dramatic effect on the look of your photo and along with shutter speed and aperture, it’s also part of our exposure triangle. A standardized set of numbers is used as a scale, like 100, 200, 400 & 800 (also see full table further down this article).
