I had a couple of unusable rolls due to spacing problems (I think it was user error as it's OK now) or development troubles (don't drink in the darkroom), and I haven't scanned the rest because either I only needed to look at the negs or because they're obviously shit (I'm still no good at composing on 6x7).
I did scan some shit ones anyway
The first one is a konica big mini with some horribly expired konica neg film
2 and 3 are with a vivitar ultra wide & slim and normally expired kodak gold
I think Cinestill would be a good bet as 1) you can up to 1600 and get usable photos without pushing (IMO, YMMV, if you're careful, etc.), and 2) I've found more than just being tungsten balanced, no matter what kind of shitty artificial/mixed lighting I've shot it in the results were really easy to work with (compared to Portra 400 which is the main other film I've abused the same way).
I got a Pentax 67 (for a great price) a while ago, but I also got a proper job shortly after and it's not exactly something you can chuck in your bag and carry around just in case... I've only put 3 or 4 (non-test) rolls through on the weekends
Having at last bought a decent medium format camera, I have of course been not taking it out at all and instead shooting my 120 film in the not so good camera I've had for ages
You will probably have to compensate for reciprocity failure for more than a few seconds exposure on pro 400, I doubt it's that significant tho tbh
If I'm struggling with manual exposure on color negs I just aim for like 2 stops over what I estimate and it'll probably be fine.
(With monochrome I just use the aperture/shutter speed I want for the shot unless it's obviously far too dark. I expose slides carefully, usually.)
I see myself being arrested on suspicion of being some kind of weird sexual predator
"Why were you taking pictures of young women's hands"
"I wasn't honestly I was taking pictures of everyone's hands"
"Disgusting, it's the death penalty for you"
