Sensia Underexposure? - Photography

I am planning to use Sensia 100 this week on a trip, just a trial roll, and I am interested in whether I should shoot at a different ISO (EI) than the rated 100. I heard some people reccomending that I rate it 1/3 stop under...that would be ISO (EI) 120, correct? Thanks again. Matt...

    If your using a trail roll shoot part of the roll at 100 and part at 1/3 under and
    even 1/2 over. That will give you 12 exposures at each ISO setting and that should
    answer your question forever. Especially since meters vary from camera to camera.
    The only good way to evaluate film is to experiment with it. Good Luck

    Well unles you think the meter is not 100% accurate, I would not
    underexpose slide film. I woould expose for the highlights and make
    sure the exposure range is no more than 4 stops difference darkest to
    lightest in the picture. Then I would shoot away. Sensia is great
    stuff, not as much contrast or saturation as Porvia 100F, and far less
    of each than Velvia which makes Sensia(which is the amateur verison of
    Astia) a great film for people. Smooth skin tones.

    love sensia, use tons and tons of it. I don't alter the iso however you
    should try it on your own camera and see what you prefer. In any case 1/3
    stop is not far off anyway.

    agree with other posters, not the perfect film but a very cheap yet
    excellent film (amateur Astia).

    EI 100 for most uses. If you're scanning a lot, do a few test slides
    slides at 1/3 over, your scanner might like the lower densities.

    (1/3 under would be 125, BTW).

    It rather depends on what you're shooting. Since Sensia 100 is basically an
    amateur version of Astia, it has a lower colour saturation which is suited
    to skin tones but seems muted for landscape and nature compared with Velvia
    or Provia 100 F. Personally, I tend to leave it rated at 100 ISO for
    "people" shots but rate it at 125 ISO for landscapes and nature shots
