You should be able to get this information directly from Kodak - either
through their customer support or the propassport telephone numbers on your
passport card.

Subject: [Leica] Artificial light shooting

I shoot all the time with my Novatron
flash units and usually get good color.

I recently got an M-6 (formerly Nikon F-5)
and want to shoot wide open to defocus an
undesirable shooting location.

I was thinking of using photo-floods so I could
really see the shadow effect on the model.

Finally, my question.  I usually shoot negative
film, and I guess that I will this time, too.

But, should I use a filter (and what filter)
to compensate for the "photoflood" (a blue glass
tungsten light) and what filter.

I know this is pretty basic, but I don't want to
get horrible results.
