I try not to use flash anyway and shoot 1000 speed color negative for that -- many people do not know the difference.I often use TMAX 3200, rated at 1600. I get very good results with that. However, I am very unfamiliar with color negative film in that range. How does it hold up for enlargements using 35mm?I have an inside evening church wedding on Friday night. Although, I plan on using Portra 400 VC, I would like to try the 800. I could just push the 400 if I need to, but I'd rather not.IMAO, the photographer should shoot everything medium format except possibly candid stuff at the reception that might be 35mm (but why not shoot MF for that, too?).If I could ask you to elaborate on this, I am very interested. MF is a royal PITA. It is clunky, not very useful for weddings, and not good for any movement. It is great for portraits, stills, and other things in a studio. But, my experience is that it really is slow and clunky. (Of course, when you say MF, I am talking about a 6x7, which is what I have. There are 6x4.5's now that are only a tad larger than 35mm and they have AF and other 35mm type features. And the beauty is, you get a larger negative). But, with a 35mm, you can really get things fast, capture moments that you may have missed because "you weren't ready", etc. I rarely even use a tripod because I like to change my POV slightly.IMO, weddings were made for the 35mm format. They are perfect. I will do engagement shoots using my MF. I will also do bridal shoots using the MF, but for the wedding day, I gotta go with the 35mm. How in tarnations would you shoot a whole wedding using a MF camera?Toes
