Help can't get tungsten film in Singapore!!!
Hi, I need some tungsten film ISO 320 and I have gone to most of the specialty shops -Cathay, Ruby, Colour Lab etc and no one has it. They are not even going to order it in anymore. Does anyone know tricks ie, can someone confirm if by using ISO 800 film with an 80B filter would give me the same results?
Thanks! I need it for a shoot this Sat.

Thank you kex for your kind offer. You know, I don't even know how to use photoshop, I am a real newbie at photography and have never even used a dslr before! But I intend to join the 21st century, I have enrolled for a photoshop Adobe class in June!

An 80B filter should correct the tungsten cast, but you lose two stops. Another trick that some photogs employ is to use an 80C filter: it will still have a warm cast, but can look quite acceptable. Advantage with 80C is you only lose one stop.

Thank you! I wasn't sure what filter to use, so that's really useful.
