As others have mentioned the ISO speed denotes grain, i.e. 100 would be finer than, say 400 but as has been mentioned already, modern film at 400 is OK. If you want the best of both worlds use 400 ISO like Ilford HP5 and buy a neutral density filter for bright days which will reduce light to film by say 4 stops. In poor light conditions take the filter off

If you decide not to keep it let me know I am looking for one- But between you and me- I should keep it. You might want a lightmeter for it and I would suggest a Weston Master V with an invercone. Plenty around second hand but make sure in has an invercone otherwise you will be unable to take incident light readings

From my own personal experience I would go second hand from an authorised dealer who will give you at least 6 months warranty- Taking that a stage further, I would buy a second hand manual camera with manual lenses which is not dependent on batteries to function. I would also buy a second hand CDS light meter, load the camera with something like FP4 and enjoy
