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.

I'd like to see that enlarged, with three stops of underexposure at 3200. Pretty flat and grainy, is my guess. Later Kodak C-41 negative films relied on overlapping dye clouds to minimize grain. Underexposure largely eliminated that advantage.

Portra handles it just fine. I've produced 12x18 prints for wedding albums rated at 1600 with no issue. Modern films are very good in this regard. Here's a test
