The metering will be wrong, and if you use P mode or Auto mode, the exposure will come out incorrect. ISO200 is 2 stops more sensitive then ISO50 and 1 stop less sensitive then ISO400. You can manually compensate though, so say using the ISO200 and you set it to ISO50 for example, if the meter says 1/125s f5.6, you can set 2 stops down to 1/125s f11, then the exposure would be correct... but why do you wanna do such "ma fan" thing?

Need help on this clarification:
On a flim camera, If I used a 200 film and change the ISO manually to say either ISO50 or ISO 400...what will happen???
Most people push, and less people pull. The process in simple terms means shooting at a particular ISO, then varying development time to achieve another ISO.Originally posted by serendipity
Hi. I too don't understand why people like to "Push/Pull" ISO? Can someone with more knowledge enrich me? Thanks.
I do agree with the noise / grains....I always thought shooting at low light must need high ISO film..even at ISO400, the kodak film still turns out very grainy.....Originally posted by Red Dawn
The last paragraph may seem strange, until you realise that for films, it's the same. For example it has been reported that it is better to push Fuji Press 800 film to 1600, than shoot with Fuji's 1600 film - images turn out better.
Sell/give/throw away all your Kodak, especially Kodak MAX 400. That must be one of the worst, most grainy 400 films around. With the money, buy Fuji Superia XTRA400. It costs only $7 for 2 rolls of 36 exposures at Cathay. Super fine grain.Originally posted by Paladin

My friend tried Portra 400VC, grainy compared to Fuji NPH 400 and Superia XTRA 400.Originally posted by YSLee
You tried Supra 400 or not before? Appears to be quite good too!
And then there's Fuji Press 800. That's high speed film!
better go ISO 800......u want to freeze pple dancing....and not have blur pictures....(of course pictures depicting movement is a different story...)Originally posted by Paladin
Was thinking maybe 400 enough?? In a hotel ballroom..should be sufficient right??
