How close is the reading to what a normal meter says? That will tell you if the meter in the camera needs calibration...
I just picked up the original scoopic 16 off ebay for a great price and it runs fantastic. i ordered some film the other day and forgot to mention that i wanted 100 ei, and i was sent a roll of 400 and dont have time to send it back. the asa meter on the scoopic 16 only goes up to 320-am i still safe to shoot in 400 asa? i would think that i would just have to use external metering, which i would have anyway.
The one stop speed below 400 is 200, normaly you find 250 and 320 as the Third of a stop mid values so you would be UNDER exposing by a third of a stop. Negative film is normaly happier with Over exposure, reversal with Under.
Will it work for a test to see if the Camera is actually working? I can't see why not.
