I know its confusing, but this is what Kodak says on their web site..

I really think its the same film, the slight variations that I have noticed on
occasion may be due to improperly stored film etc... I do expose at 320,640 and
1000 with good results.. you should just be aware that the dynamic range at
ASA1000 is very shallow.

She should try it with the meter set at 320, I have never tried it at 400 so
really cant say.. the other variable to consider is: was the film developed
properly?, sometimes I wonder with the lab I use.. and they have pissed me off
on a couple of occasions. Luckily you can still buy kits and develop the film at
home with better control.
