True, to a small degree, and usually a matter of the more demanding
lighting requirements of COLOR film. I have yet to see any effect of
it. I get more annoyed by the unnatural skin tones than anything
else. But like I said, you can turn down the color on your TV and watch in
B/W if you prefer. No harm, no foul.
