did mention this on previous post, you could change ISO with film.

only if you process the film yourself. Good luck shooting ASA 400 film and changing to 3200 in the middle of the film and to 800 for the last 4 images and going to a lab (especially today) and telling them to cut the film in the middle and before the 4 last images and develop the second part 6 minutes longer and the last part for 2 minutes longer.

Portra 400......100 to 3200 on e same roll, no problem. So when you say good luck, is this just an opinion, or is it experience? I ask because when it comes to film on this forum, opinion runs high, and experience is virtually nil.

Ilfords XP1/2 was actually processed as colour film C-41 and was useful at Football matches when light was fading, you simply upped the ISO.

I shot those films quite a bit.  The IQ was better at the rated speeds. Three stops under wasn't very good. There was increased grain and a lack of punch.
