I now have a working Beaulieu 4000ZM and also a ZM2. I'm going on a trip and have decided to take the ZM while the ZM2 is about to go for a service with Bjorn.
1. The mirror looks like it could use a clean. Should I be nervous, or if I am very gentle and careful, can I proceed? Other than that, the camera is clean, runs smooth and looks almost mint.
2. I intend to run two test films while I am away on tour with my band. A roll of Vision 3 200T, and a roll of 500T. The cameras ASA setting only goes to 400. What's the best way to deal with this?
3. If the answer to question 2 is buy an external light meter, which one is best taking into account the shutter angle of the 4008 camera? This one covers cine shutter speeds but only at a 180 degree angle.
Thank you for reading.
