And because it is the negative it could be 3 stops overexposed and it could still look perfect once finished.
Perfect? Acceptable, perhaps. It would depend on the film stock, and the process used to correct it, but I'd say a properly exposed shot is always going to look better than one that has been adjusted in post-production, especially if it was originally overexposed by three entire F-stops.
