Does the Neutral Density filter affect the color of the film? Are they ONLY used with color film?

Is color film stock balanced for 3400 deg Kelvin called Daylight Film?

Does Tungsten lighting contain less blue light than daylight?

Is film color balanced for 5400 deg Kelvin made to respond properly in Tungsten light or Daylight?

When shooting color tungsten film in daylight should I remove the 85 filter?

Does the largest f/stop a lens has reflect the speed of that lens?

Does a reflect viewfinder show what the lens sees more accurately than a non-reflex finder?

How many frames per second is sound speed?
