I'm sitting on a roll of 3200 ASA film for night sky shots and landscapes. Ugh is this stuff expensive. I think I'll be using the DSLR as a really fancy light meter.

will it meter differently on a crop sensor than a FF?

No. But you have to compensate the different field of view due to the crop factor. And if we're really accurate, chances are that the ASA value of the film and the ISO value of the DSLR don't equal each other. Every camera maker has different opinions what means ISO 800 for example.

I have some filter for my Retina but none for the Mamiya. I think if I would, then a yellow filter for people photography, I like how it looks in Lightroom if using it digitaly. Green filter is my nightmare, it turns my dark skinned ex-gf from chocolate to charcoal.

Did you already shoot some of the ASA 3200 stuff? I heard they typically are only really ASA 1000 but designed for push processing.

IC I would think that as long as you do the math and get the real focal length on a cropped sensor and match that to the focal length on the film camera you should be close. If nothing else you'll have an f stop shutter combination to start with instead of guessing and bracketing like a madman. All the meters on my Minolta cameras don't meter right once you get down to 3 EV. That's why I'm trying to find that one viewfinder for the XK, it meters down to 1 EV.

I'm also thinking we're all screwing up if we aren't using filters when we go out and shoot B&W film. I'll go so far and say I know we are. I shot a few rolls after about a zillion years of not shooting it and the images just didn't look right. So out came the books for refresher course 101 and sure enough B&W film is overly sensitive to certain wavelengths of light, in particular blue. A sure sign of this is "white sky" and a lot of mushy grey tones. Ilford's website confirms this as well. So do my pics. Ahhh the hazards of forgetting that different mediums require different techniques to overcome their specific idiosyncrasies.

Another Angry Sky shot. If this would have been shot in B&W film without a filter it would have been a washed out mess. With a number 25 or 29 filter this is what I would expect to see using B&W film.

Did you watch The Andromeda Strain last night?

Haven't seen the movie. Are there aliens that looks like soda bubbles in it?

Well sorta in a green snotty kinda way. It all depends on magnification. The culprit is a crystal space virus that instantly clots the blood if inhaled among other things. It's a classic sci fi movie from eons ago.
