S8 tri-x film in Bolex 625 XL

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I just bought a super 8mm camera, the Bolex 625 XL. The camera is automatic and and is rated for 100 ASA daylight and 160 ASA 'artificial light'. I am wanting to shoot S8 tri-x (rated at 200 ASA daylight, and 160 tungsten). My question is, will the camera adjust to the highest ASA it is capable of (160 ASA) and so the film will only be 1/3 of a stop over, in daylight and properly exposed in tungsten or will the exposure just be completely off?

I apologize if the question is especially naive, this is my first first film camera.
