zuiko lens - cool color rendetion?

I inspected scans from oly 35SP pictures taken under tungsten lights, and was surprised to find almost no orange cast. As far as I understand this cast is very hard to get rid of by means of scanning tricks, or photoshoping, it requires filtering in taking stage - 80B or similar. Very usefull "tungsten lights white ballance" feature for indoor shooting - 80B filter eats 1 f-stop. Did you experience it (cool color rendition) with your 35sp?

Zuiko lenses are up there with Leitz and Nikon and you should never see any color cast (from the lens) at all.

Probably the choice of film. A "cool" rendition would not get rid of the colour shift entirely.

It's something I myself can not explain. Film corrected for daylight must have given orange cast if shot under tungsten lights. Will try another color film.

Modern colour films do much better with tungsten and mixed lightening. Fuji's "fourth layer" technology is especially effective, in my experience. I can't comment on Kodak's films, as I haven't used much Kodak C41 lately, though that is on my list.

If the film you used is OEM from Fuji or Kodak, that may partially explain the results.

Cool or warm rendition cannot cimpensate for tungsten lighting. It's like using 81A or 82A filter, but to correct tungsten lighting for daylight film you need 80 series filter, which is much much stronger blue.

I bet it's the film you are using. Some daylight films are better for tungsten, some are worse. You need to find out for yourself. I had nice results using Kodak, and some bad ones using Fuji. But it also depends on your scanning workflow, the scanner itself... and many other factors.
