Super 8 using 64T indoors

Hi,
I have a bunch of Ektachrome 64T film that I wanted to shoot indoors. I have 2 750W spiderlites that I am using and wanted to diffuse these with chimera bank kits. The camera itself only has two settings, indoor or outdoor. If I choose indoor and use these lights with diffusion will my exposure be okay?

Thanks in advance,
Brandi

Brandi,

It is difficult to say how your camera will handle the 64T stock without knowing which model of camera it is. Based on your discription I presume that it is a simple auto exposure camera, but that doesn't mean that this stock will work with it. Check out this link. It has some good info and a list of usable cameras.

Regarding the lighting you have - it may be enough depending on how you intend to use it and how far away the lights are from your subject, among many other things. Perhaps you could share more about your project (subject, set/location, colors, movement...etc).
