Camera settings for black and white versus color film

When I shoot black and white in my home studio, I set my camera at 1/60th and f8.0. Would I use different camera settings for color film? Thanx!

    Beverly,

    Your camera settings are currently providing proper exposure with a specific type of black and white film. However, without knowing what ISO rating your film has, it will be hard to tell if the color film you buy will perform in the same way. If the ISO ratings match, then it is likely you will be pleased with those settings with the color film exposure as well.

    For studio work, I recommend considering the purchase of a light meter. After you dial in your film ISO and choose a working shutter speed, the meter will tell you the proper aperture setting to use in order to obtain proper exposure.
