Does exposure compensation only affect color films?

    compensation?

    If anything you might want to use it more with B&W film. Usually you find
    the B&W film speed that works best for you and your setup. It rarely matches
    the ISO exactly. The other thing is some filters can fool camera meters a
    little.

  3. I shoot mostly black and white.

    The tones are very important in B&W (Its all we have !) and most B&W
    negative films do not have as much latitude as colour negative (C41) films,
    so getting the exposure spot-on is very important.

    So exposure compensation is very important and you would use in just the
    same situations (backlit etc.)

  4. It would all depend on why you are using exposure compensation.

    Why are you?
