Retro-X 200 Asa film in indoor

Recommended Posts

Anyone use or know the Retro-X 200 Asa film in Single 8 format?
I use it with my Fujica ZC1000; camera, as known, doesn't have the external setting for the Asa, but uses only the notches on the cartridge.
I'm going to use this film with artificial light, 3400K; obviously without a filter, it's a b/w film.
Considering that cartridge contains an Orwo 200 Asa daylight, and that the Orwo UN54 (ex. in Double 8 format) it born for 100 or 125 asa in daylight and at 80 or 100 Asa in artificial light, this film Retro-X should be set at 160 Asa. It's Ok?
But how use with the mentioned ZC1000?
It's a good setting the Fractional Exposure feature of this camera at "2"? See photos below.
More comfortable than the method at photo upward, I suppose.

I answer myself: better the "exposure compensation" option at 1/3rd stop over, with the needle just above the center. For have 160 Asa.

With the Fractional Exposure Control at "2" the camera would give a 100 Asa exposure, too much.
