Got my Standard 8 film from John Schwind; I recommend him as his service was very rapid. It is actually K40 but under the name of Cine Chrome 40. My question is; has anyone used this film with their Bolex because the film requires a Wratten No 85 filter for exposure in daylight; I wondered how users dealt with this requirement. Maurice Leakey has been very helpful, and I was just wondering what other users have done?

As my Bolex cameras do actually have the correct data on the info plate,just set the camera meter to that,add the correct filter,press the 'read' button and it works perfectly.
ASA 25 will be needed.

Standard8 rules!!
